Local dance students from Garvey School of Dance are in the final stages of preparation for their performance on the Royal Caribbean's Voyager of the Seas.
The group of 19 students will be one of the on-board entertainment shows during the 10 night cruise in April.
Studio owner Maureen Partridge said the students are starting to get excited about their performance.
"They are starting to get excited about it now, on the weekend we had a full makeup, hair and costume practice and it really brought it home to them that the cruise is so soon," she said.
"We've been practicing in costumes since January, but it has taken 12 months to put the 45 minute routine together."
The performance is titled the Evolution of Dance and showcases how dance has changed from the 1920s to modern day.
"There are 10 costume changes and 12 routines in the performance," Maureen said.
For each decade there is a narration of the time and what dance styles were popular before the three minute dance routine.
The dancers range in age from eight to 63 and the fast pace of the routine has been a challenge to learn and perfect for the students.
"Some of the younger students did struggle with the quick costume changes, but they all have an older buddy student in the group who has helped them."
Maureen said she wanted her dance school to be involved because it was something different and would allow them to perform to a large audience on a big stage.
"I had seen this sort of thing at dance conferences and a lot of studios do the trip to Disneyland to perform, but this was a different option," she said.
"We also have around 50 parents and friends going on the cruise as well."
The group will set sail on April 9 on Royal Caribbean's Voyager of the Seas with around 4000 people on board.
The group will also be doing a special performance for locals at the Bandbox Theatre on March 28 at 2pm. Tickets cost $10 for adults and $5 for children and can be purchased online here.
"I'm very proud of them, they've given 110 per cent. It's wonderful to showcase a dance studio from a small town on such a big stage," Maureen said.
