Rise of the Brave Tangled Dragons Wiki


Dance Academy AU (also known as Music AU, Broadway AU and Band AU) is an AU (Alternate Universe) within the Rise of the Brave Tangled Dragons universe. In the AU, Rapunzel, Merida, Hiccup and Jack Frost are all portrayed as students of a Dance and Theatre school. Because it is not canon, ideas for this AU are shown through fanfiction, fanart, and other fan-made works.

About this AU

In this AU, members of the fandom are portrayed as active members with dreams of singing, dancing, playing or acting on stage (like the beloved group Frame or the people who were featured in the Dance Academy TV series). Most commonly, this AU takes place in modern times.

How the characters themselves are portrayed usually differs, from the choses of the subjects and future curriers that the four (or other characters) hope to someday achieve. The four can also start up a band or star in stage shows that are already or yet to be added in the fandom's AUs, like Wicked, Beauty and the Beast, Swan Lake, Cinderella and more.
