ACHS performing arts students have the rare opportunity to perform in the Walt Disney World parks.

For many years the Antioch Community High School Fine Arts department has given students the opportunity to go to one of the many Disney Parks and perform. This year’s trip, which is taking place between March 22, 2024, and March 26, 2024, will mark the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic that ACHS students have had the chance to go. For this year’s trip, the fine arts students will be going to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla. 

Fine arts students will have the chance to visit all four theme parks provided and Walt Disney World’s shopping district, Disney Springs. The trip is not just about exploring the magic of the Disney Parks, it is also about giving students the chance to explore music at a deeper level. 

Orchestra Director Micheal Riggs has been in charge of organizing this year’s trip. Riggs described some of the unique opportunities the students who attend will have. 

“The Disney Performing Arts Workshops are designed to give the students a glimpse into what it is like to be a professional performer with the Walt Disney Corporation,” Riggs said.

The workshop material is kept secret until the day of the workshop. It gives students the chance to see what a professional or college situation is like. Students who attend will also get the opportunity to perform Disney music throughout the parks, an event that they will remember for a long time. 

“I think one of the unique opportunities is that they get to travel to someplace some of them haven’t been to before,” Riggs said. “The workshop with the Disney artists is another unique opportunity that a lot of people don’t have, and then the experience of traveling with a bunch of your good friends is an important opportunity that the trip offers.” 

Overall, the Fine Arts department is excited to experience Disney World for the first time in years. The directors are excited to share the Disney experience with the students and experience all that Walt Disney World has to offer.
