Disney kicks off third season of Camp Rock

MUMBAI: Disney channel has announced the third season of Camp Rock. The all India inter school competition draws inspiration from Disney’s original movie ‘Camp Rock’.

This year, Camp Rock will mirror the underlining theme of the movie – Don’t Fit In, Stand Out!

The movie encourages kids by asserting that everyone has a star talent within themselves which they need to explore. The winners of the competition will feature in a Disney Channel music video to be choreographed by the celebrity Bollywood choreographer and the judge of this competition, Shiamak Davar.

Walt Disney Television International (India) SVP and MD Antoine Villeneuve said, “Disney Channel Original Movie, Camp Rock incorporates two big themes that are a part of our content strategy that attract and engage kids -- music and dance. My School Rocks guides kids to find their true identity and talent to earn the fame and adulation just the way the stars of the movie achieve their dreams.”

“This initiative provides kids a unique nationwide opportunity to discover their talents and celebrate teamwork,” Villeneuve added.

The channel is touring schools across Delhi, Mumbai, Chandigarh, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Ludhiana and Lucknow to host school relationship programmes to invite participating teams.

The competition will reach out to over 500,00 kids through this school programme. City led auditions will be held in November and are expected to attract more than 1000 schools across the country, stated an official release.

The challenge for the teams would be to make an impression on the judge by choreographing enthralling performances on the Camp Rock soundtrack which is more hip hop, rock and freestyle (music genres) this year.

After reviewing the audition tapes, Shiamak Davar will shortlist eight finalists whose performance vignettes (eight performances) would be aired on Disney Channel for audience poll. And the final winner will be selected on basis of all India votes and Shiamak’s marks to the team. In addition, Shiamak Davar’s Institute for the Performing Arts will support and inspire the budding talent during the auditions.

The eight locations for auditions include:

  • Mumbai November 4 & 5

  • Chandigarh November 17

  • Ludhiana November 18

  • Lucknow November 21

  • Delhi November 24& 25

  • Ahmedabad November 28

  • Kolkata December 1

  • Hyderabad December 2
