See what it’s like to live the life of a Disney entertainment professional!

Here at Disney Imagination Campus, our Performing Arts curriculum and performance opportunities let participants experience first-hand what it’s like to be a Disney entertainment professional. Blending a broad range of disciplines from live theatre to dance, vocal, and instrumental music, there is truly something for everyone.

Whether performing on a Disney Parks stage for a live audience or taking part in one of our engaging instructional workshops, participants will be treated as working professionals. They’ll have the rare opportunity to hone their craft while learning from real working artists in the industry, both at Disney and beyond. Students will also have the invaluable experience of practicing, learning, and performing in unfamiliar settings and in front of new faces. This refreshing break from the normal routine provides exposure to other perspectives while serving as a positive and empowering reminder that when it comes to working in entertainment, one must expect the unexpected! We hope to inspire performers with a glimpse of just how far they can go – while creating magical memories and learning valuable lessons that will last a lifetime.
