AUDITIONS FOR DISNEY CHANNEL’S “MY SCHOOL ROCKS!” 2012 ARE HAPPENING IN KK THIS SUNDAY!
Get ready to cheer on your favourite school team as My School Rocks! 2012 auditions kick off!
Taking place in Kota Kinabalu on Sunday 1 July at the Foo Chow Association, it’s set to be a rocking good time for all the teams as well as their supporters, because the teams with the most enthusiastic fans will be given an award for the Most Supportive School (“Anugerah Sekolah Paling Bersemangat”) on the audition day!
My School Rocks! 2012 is open to all students of government and international schools, with two categories: Primary School Category for ages 7-12, and Secondary School Category for ages 13-17. Each team has between three and eight members, and this year, and they’ll be dancing to their song of choice, selected from one of 12 different Disney Channel albums, including the latest Lemonade Mouth and Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Beyond the Second Dimension soundtracks!
Auditions will be judged by celebrity judges Linda Jasmine and Sazzy Falak as well as by public voting – after each audition, the top team from each category will have their audition video posted online from 28 July to 12 August, with the public’s vote accounting for 50% of each team’s points. Meanwhile the remaining 50% will be awarded by the judges on choreography; showmanship; props and costumes; teamwork and sportsmanship; and dance concept.
To help the students fine-tune their dance routine and choreography, the first 50 schools that registered with two teams were given the exclusive privilege to have a personalized dance workshop for their teams. During these 4 hour workshops, instructors from Urban Groove Dance Network (UGDN) were on hand to run through the steps that the teams had choreographed and provided tips on how to improve and give a stunning performance during the auditions.
“Be prepared and put in the time and effort to make your choreography and routines as tight as possible,” advised Joel Tan, founder of UGDN. “Secondly, remember to have fun. If it’s too serious, there’s no meaning and it’ll show on your faces. Last but not least, stay original – don’t copy what you see in music videos or on the internet; think out of the box and don’t follow the conventional!”
“I took part in My School Rocks! 2012 because my hobby is dancing and I’m going to rock on that day!” said 9-year-old Lim Wei Lynn from Sekolah Kebangsaan Assunta (1). “I had a lot of fun at the dance workshop and the crew helped us tighten our dance rhythm!”
The winners of My School Rocks! 2012 (Primary and Secondary level) will be announced on 25 August 2012 on Disney Channel (ASTRO Channel 615), with the Grand Prize winners winning a 3-day, 2-night stay at Hong Kong Disneyland, a trophy and certificate, while best Primary and Secondary teams for each state will win a trophy, certificate and a set of musical instruments.

Will you be there? I know I have to because my school is participating, not to mention the pain to get them ready for the competition. Sewing project for costumes and choreographing the steps. Hope all gonna be well tomorrow. I don't aim for any placing but I do hope my students will have the best experience and memories that will last a lifetime.
