Ex-Mousketeer touts ‘Skool Starz’ in Surrey

Curtis Wong first appeared on “The New Mickey Mouse Club” TV series in mid-1970s

North Delta resident Curtis Wong is set to bring his new musical workshop classes to a dance studio in Newton starting in September.

SURREY — A former “Mousketeer” is launching his new Skool Starz musical workshop in Surrey next month.

Curtis Wong first appeared on “The New Mickey Mouse Club” TV series in the mid-1970s. He went on to co-star in hundreds of live shows at Disney theme parks in California and Florida.

He says he’s composed more than 100 songs and worked with stars including Paul Abdul, Lisa Whelchel, Carol Burnett, Annette Funicello and others.

Wong, who lives in North Delta, says his Skool Starz program is designed for preteens to learn about challenges and successes in life.

The basis for the eight-week course is a musical that includes 12 of Wong’s original songs. Singing, dancing and acting will be taught to kids aged seven to 12, he said, with an emphasis on memory, social and musical skills.

The course will start Sept. 26 at the Dance West studio on 84th Avenue in Surrey. Details are posted at Skoolstarz.com.
