Today is the day that the pre-recorded Celebrating 25 Magical Years of Disney On Broadway will be live-streamed to audiences around the world.
The special event begins tonight at 7pm Eastern and will benefit the Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS’ COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Fund. The presentation will be available on the Broadway Cares website, YouTube page, and Facebook page, plus various partners, including iHeart Radio and the websites of ABC owned television stations.
In celebration of this special event, I thought I'd take some time to share something that I think is pretty special. Some of the Disney on Broadway performers put together a dance tutorial that teaches you some of the choreography from Arabian Nights, the opening number of Disney's Aladdin on Broadway.
I spoke with a friend of mine this morning who has two tween kiddos, a boy and a girl, and they spent a good portion of their day practicing these dance moves and she said they were laughing and having a great time. She did mention that the quarantine business is making the kids hate everything at the moment so this was an awesome thing to see. She also mentioned that they took the whole charade quite seriously making me wish that I could share video with you.
Nonetheless, while I don't have their video to share with you, I do have the tutorial below and I hope that you'll give it a whirl! Please come back to this post and share the fun you had as we can all use as many heartwarming stories as we can get ahold of.
