This exciting program introduces students to Broadway-style theater jazz. Class work consists of a jazz warm-up, stretching, and building a vocabulary of steps and combinations. All students have the opportunity to perform in our annual Holiday and Spring Recitals. Broadway dancers are strongly encouraged to take ballet and tap to complement their training.
