Some of the dancers and artist are the characters or the CM helping the characters.

I have been amazed at what my son has gotten on our Cruises by submitting a letter at the pursers desk. He got us a tour of the bridge when they do not do bridge tours just by sending a letter to the Ship Capitan and asking. The tour was in port by the second mate. He got a back stage tour buy sending a letter to Micky Mouse. The tour was by one of the performers. I have always told my son, you do not know what you can get unless you ask.

I would have your daughters submit a letter to "the show dancers". Just have them write it and leave it at the pursers desk.

We did a behind the scenes Back Stage Tour and they had a couple of performers for the question and answer period. It was very interesting. The answer that sticks out most for me was to the question of dancing during big waves. The performers are expecting the floor to be there when they land but the ship is pitching down, or they hit the floor sooner because the deck is pitching up. And instead of landing with their feet together, they have them spread out to keep their balance for when the floor isn't there when they expect it.

Thanks for the suggestions all. We are doing a 5 night with 2 days at sea, so perhaps there will be a BST.

We will try the submitting a letter at guest services and see what happens, or tracking down Brent if we get the chance...Love Brent!!!

That all sounds so cool, I would have loved to have met a Disney dancer when I was young.

If you get on the Dream talk to Christiaan the Cruise Director he's a dancer. He worked as a dancer on the DCL ships and did a couple contracts at Disney Tokyo. Very interesting career prior to Disney too.
