TACP is a world first and one of the best performance opportunities for Australian performers to gain US credits. TACP offers singers and dancers the opportunity to perform live in front of millions of people representing Australia at two of the US’s biggest parades – the McDonald’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in Chicago & the Hollywood Christmas Parade in Hollywood, California. Both these events are televised across the US to hundreds of millions of viewers as well as local media agencies. Both parades are also streamed online to a worldwide audience. The Hollywood Christmas Parade boasts a live audience of over two million people watching and lining the streets. In addition to these performances, students will take masterclasses with amazing industry choreographers and vocal coaches.
