On this day in 1901 the wonderful Walt Disney was born! For those of you who don't know of him (surely impossible!) Walt Disney was an American film producer, director, screenwriter, voice actor, entrepreneur, entertainer, international icon, philanthropist and - perhaps most importantly - animator, who is responsible for hundreds of beautiful films (most of which are amongst our favourites!) from Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs, Peter Pan, Sleeping Beauty, Aladdin and Toy Story, to The Parent Trap, Princess Diaries and Pirates of the Caribbean, Disney established a company that has continued to produce heart-warming, exciting, magical adventures long after his passing.
Walt's films, especially the early ones are also especially well known for their beautiful song and dance sequences made in many ways more special by the time and effort that went into the hand animation of a lot of them (back in the day before computer animations dominated!) and so, without further ado, and in honor of the great man himself, here is a collection of Disney's dances, to the beautiful Sleeping Beauty Waltz!
Happy Birthday Walt :)
...and a few more :)
