YOUNG dancers travelled all the way to Paris to perform for the second time after they were spotted on YouTube by Disney bosses.

The boys and girls, who are members of Performers Dance & Musical School Ltd (PDMSL) which holds  classes in Hanham, were invited to the French capital as part of Disneyland Paris's 25th anniversary.

They had originally performed in Disneyland Paris in 2015 but were invited back this October for the special celebrations on the strength of their previous performance.

Principal and choreographer Lucy Ryan said the young dancers were a credit to the UK.

"Our dancers have performed and competed all around the UK and Europe but in 2015 were spotted on YouTube by Disney and invited to perform in Disneyland Paris.

"We were then asked back to perform as part of the park's 25th birthday celebrations which saw 70 members travel to Paris to perform a 20 minute packed set to over 3,000 people inside the Disney Park.

"It was a fantastic performance and all PDMSL dancers performed beautifully."

PDMSL, which specialises in dance tuition for ages four to adult, has been running in the South West for more than 12 years.

Classes are held across Bristol including Friday evenings at Hanham Woods Academy.
