What’s your earliest childhood memory? For me, it’s a wonderful one with my late dad, marvelling at a starfish at Hawaii, at age three. For my best friend of 20 years, it’s a much-treasured memory of seeing an early version of Disney On Ice, also at age three.
To a child, few things are as exciting as the magic and wonderment of the ultimate princess experience, Disney On Ice presents Dare To Dream, touring the nation now.
And so my two littlies, aged three and two, were beside themselves with joy when we headed to see the show in Brisbane. They’d dressed up in their finest – Frozen-themed dresses, jumpers and shoes – and indeed the scene before the show would have made the late Walt Disney well proud: hordes of Disney princesses as far as the eye could see, even some adult-sized ones also resplendent in costume.
Celebrating 75 years of Disney Princess stories, Dare to dream showcases two of Disney’s modern-day princess stories: Tangled and The Princess and the Frog together with two of its most-beloved fairytales; Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Cinderella. It’s an action-packed skating spectacle bound to warm your heart, just as it did mine.
My daughters whooped, danced, laughed and smiled non-stop throughout the show – this will warm the cockles of the hearts of even the most tired, jaded parents, just as it did ours. And parents will enjoy the experience too – the beauty, sparkle and skill demonstrated in the ice-skating show are a true joy to behold. How on earth do you run and dance in ice skates? Even the show’s warm-up act displayed Olympian-like prowess on the ice!
This is a great school holidays experience for the whole family. I’m confident my little lasses will savour and remember this experience for many years to come. Check it!
