Dance school’s touching Disneyland Paris tribute after mum died aged just 34

A dance school has paid a moving tribute to a mum by staging their own performance at Disneyland Paris.

Michelle Davis, 34, from Bradford left behind her partner Leon and their children when she died last year, reports Yorkshire Live.

Loved ones have since described her as “such a special woman” who delighted in taking her daughter Sarabi Robinson along to dance classes.

She named the six-year-old after the character – a lioness who is queen of Pride Rock – in 1994 Disney film The Lion King,

Looking to give a fitting tribute in Michelle’s memory, the Paris Cheris Dance Company recently performed a special dance to a song from her beloved musical.

Paris Cheris Braithwaite-Hamilton brought 18 dancers from Bradford and Holyhead to Disneyland Paris to give the performance, and reflected on the emotional moment by saying: “No words, it isn’t every day you can say you have performed at Disneyland Paris! I’m so proud of every single one of my superstars.

“The feedback we have had has been unreal. [Now] time to relax and enjoy the rest of our amazing stay.”

The dance carried a special emotional meaning, as Michelle was due to join them on the trip.

Some of the young dancers got on an aeroplane for the first time as they headed to Paris for the performance.

The girls were given customised hoodies and Minnie Mouse ears to explore the magical kingdom, before heading over to the Disney stage to perform in their animal-print costumes.

“We are so super proud of our dance in memory of such a beautiful lady”, Paris added.

Giving her reaction the dance, the late mum’s friend Irene Travers said: “Michelle would be so proud of each and everyone of them.”

The latest tribute followed an emotional message from Michelle’s widower Leon, who wrote of her: “You did everything for us and we worked as a team but boy on my own it’s hard, getting them dance and boxing and football and homework done fed and bathed, it’s mad how well we worked as a team, in time I will get there without the madness but take each day as it comes.

“Love and miss you my Queen. It really doesn’t get any easier, you were my everything. Me and the kids love and miss you so much.”
