Disney out to give a chance to kids to say ‘My School Rocks’

Disney Channel brings to India ‘My School Rocks’, a music and dance competition inspired by Disney’s original movie ‘High School Musical’. Delhi’s Bal Bharti School is the first school that has registered for the nationwide competition, which began on October 29. The winning school team will get to star in a music video of one of the songs from ‘High School Musical’, which will be specially choreographed by Shiamak Davar and aired on Disney Channel.

Shiamak Davar’s Institute for the Performing Arts (SDIPA) will support the young talent to participate in the competition. Audition for the competition will take place at eight selected cities – Delhi, Chandigarh, Hyderabad, Lucknow, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, and Kolkata.

Antoine Villeneuve, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Walt Disney Television International India, said, “Disney’s ‘High School Musical’ continues to be a rage around the world, which is all about staying true to yourself and expressing yourself. Through the new season of ‘My School Rocks’, we look forward to see a lot of ‘High School Musical’ fans demonstrating their passion for dance and music.”

Davar, who is also the judge for the competition, said, “I am more than thrilled to be part of ‘My School Rocks’ as it brings two of my biggest passions together – dance and music. I am convinced that I will learn as much as I will contribute in the next few months, interacting and working with kids from all over the country. I am extremely excited and look forward to meeting and dancing with a lot of kids.”

‘High School Musical 2’ will go on air on Disney Channel in December this year. ‘High School Musical’ premiered in India on September 24, 2006. The channel has plans to promote the show across all media platforms.
