Bringing Life to Disneyland’s World of Color “Dancing” Fountains

24 May 2010 No Comment

Have you ever wondered how Disney’s World of Color Imagineers researched how to make the fountains “dance?”

By watching real dancers, of course! Disney brought in a world-renowned choreographer to help translate human dance into…water dance!

Since “World of Color” doesn’t have any live performers, the fountains will become our dancers and actors. To help with staging the fountains, we brought in Joshua Horner. … We asked Josh to take the musical score for the show and create a style and choreographic point of view for each number. Whether it was the signature look to the show’s theme, or the lush balletic moves in “Part of Your World,” Josh put his heart and soul into the movement of each piece.

Here’s a little video describing how this process takes place:
