Disney rolls 2nd season of My School Rocks

MUMBAI: Disney Channel has commenced the second season of ‘My School Rocks’ at Bal Bharti School, New Delhi, the first school registering for India‘s biggest inter-school dance competition.  Celebrity choreographer and competition judge Shiamak Davar was also present to demonstrate a few steps with the ‘High School Musical 2’ soundtrack and encourage the school kids. 


Inspired by Disney Channel Original Movie – ‘High School Musical 2’, ‘My School Rocks’ celebrates dance and music by offering kids a nationwide opportunity to participate in teams and express themselves. The winning school team will get the opportunity to star in a music video of one of the songs from ‘High School Musical 2’, which will be choreographed by Davar and air on Disney Channel.


Walt Disney Television International (India) senior vice president and managing director Antoine Villeneuve said, “Disney’s ‘High School Musical’ continues to be a rage around the world, which is all about staying true to yourself and express yourself. Through the new season of ‘My School Rocks’, we look forward to seeing a lot of ‘High School Musical’ fans to demonstrate their passion for dance and music.” 


Davar added, “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 looking forward to meeting and dancing with a lot of kids!”


The competition this year has expanded to eight cities for auditions in November, and is expected to attract more than 1000 schools to participate. In addition, Shiamak Davar’s Institute for the Performing Arts will support and inspire the budding talent. 


Schools across India can register in writing to Disney Channel by 18 November. Participating schools will choreograph a dance sequence on one of the ‘High School Musical 2’ Hindi soundtracks and appear for auditions at selected cities. Davar will shortlist eight semi-finalists from the entries received; the videos of these eight performances will air on Disney Channel in December.


The final winner will be chosen based on Disney Channel audience polls and Davar’s marks to the teams. 


‘High School Musical 2’ is set to premiere across India on Disney Channel in early December this year.
