2018 was our Time to Shine !
As a preferred Partner of Disneyland® Paris 2018 was a wonderful season of Performing Arts, working with the Disney team, inspiring up to 1000 students to perform on stage at Disneyland® Paris throughout the year, taking part in workshops and enjoying the magic of the Disneyland parks.
The premier of Time to Shine @ Disneyland® Paris took place in October, with hundreds of performing arts students, joining the COGO Travel team and our expert speakers for their time to shine. The event was a unique opportunity for students to not only perform on stage at Disneyland® Paris but hear from industry experts about how to maximise their potential career in world of show business.

In December we were privileged to be able to offer an unforgettable once in a lifetime experience singing the Magic of Christmas at the Let’s Sing Christmas event. A magical mix of Disney Characters, Disney professional singers and vocal coaches, with a unique performance venue for the event provided choirs and vocal groups with a performance opportunity of a lifetime. Watching “The Blend Choir” tread the boards on stage with the Disney cast including Mickey & Minnie in December, was a fantastic close to the year of performances.
New performance opportunities for 2019 & 2020
We are always looking to widen our choice of opportunities for performing and based on feedback from our groups, have added an extended Europe and USA range of performance trips, all designed to combine stage time with skills development through workshops.
Time to Shine Spain 2019 – Join us at the world-renowned Benidorm Palace for a dance and musical theatre spectacular in October 2019 for Time to Shine Spain, during which groups will perform to an audience of over 1500 in this premier venue with over 30 years of entertainment.
Dance the World Broadway July 2020 – A once in a lifetime opportunity to perform on National Dance Day Weekend in the Evening Lights of Times Square, New York. As if that wasn’t enough excitement your groups will also deliver a Stage Show Performance on one of the leading stages on Broadway.
Message from Lucy Newton – COGO Travel Performing Arts Expert
“This past year has been wonderful for me personally and the performing arts department at COGO Travel. Having the opportunity to assist Principals and Teachers in providing these fabulous learning and performance opportunities, is something I could have only dreamed of after leaving the world of professional Musical Theatre.
To be able to pass my knowledge on through teaching and hosting our events is something I truly treasure, and I can’t wait to help many more schools live their dreams over the coming year.”
