Now children can shake a leg with Disney channel's 'My School Rocks'

Disney channel will be showcasing kids' talents through an inter-school group dance competition called 'My School Rocks'. The channel has invited kids across India to participate in the contest, which has been inspired by Disney channel's original movie, 'High School Musical'.

Nachiket Pantvaidya, Executive Director-Programming and Production, Walt Disney Television International (India), said, "Disney Channel programming reflects real kids lives, their aspirations and dreams. 'My School Rocks' is all about encouraging kids to express themselves while learning the value of teamwork. As in the movie High School Musical, this contest is about believing in yourself and following your dreams."

Till now around 200 schools had registered for the contest, informed Pantvaidya. Participating schools will choreograph a dance sequence on the 'High School Musical' hit song 'Ho ek hi aim' and appear for auditions at select locations in cities across India. Well-known Bollywood choreographer, Saroj Khan, would shortlist five finalists from the entries received.

The winning group will star in a special music video, which will be choreographed by Khan that would premier on the channel on December 25, 2006 .

The audition dates across select cities in India where schools can come and participate are: Amritsar: November 9, Kolkata and Delhi: November 15 and 16, Mumbai: November 16 and 17 and Ahmedabad, November 17.

The channel has recreated the show for the Indian audience. In order to step up its local programming, the channel would lay stress on local programming by way of having around 130 hours of local programming by October 2007, informed Pantvaidya.
