THOR HITS THE HIGH SEAS WITH PRINCESS CRUISES!
AFTER 7 YEARS ON LAND…
THOR HITS THE HIGH SEAS!
“PRINCESS ROCK SCHOOL AT SEA,
POWERED BY THOR”
Hello everyone in the THOR Community!
This is a very cool new endeavor for us, and we wanted to share. We were approached by Princess Cruises to develop a version of the THOR method that can be put on a 7 day cruise. This is no simple task, as you all can imagine, since we are used to having at least 2 months to achieve new learning goals to be realized at our shows throughout the school-year.
Well, after working out the logistics and coming up with a workable scenario, we are kicking off 6 weeks of rock school on Princess Cruise Lines, on two ships, from Seattle to Alaska, from July 11-August 21st 2016!
It is such a blast to see the method we have developed over the past 7 years come to life in a completely different setting. The kids each week, who do not know each other before the cruise, rock a 4 song set in front of a packed house, and all learn something in the midst of their vacation and day trips. The program is run by the knowledgeable and rockin’ Princess staff, and they could be more supportive of the program, vibe, and mission.
The next step will be looking at how to put it on a few more family-centric cruises, training staff, to see if it is something that the kids/families want to include on their cruises; But who knows where it can lead if people dig it… possibly adding an adult version, or even specialty type programs like songwriting or “fantasy camp” with legends. All things we have done at home at THOR, but now on a moving and rocking vessel, very exciting.
As always, rock on, and we’ll see you at class (on land) this week!
