We had such a wonderful time with Jakob Karr. He is a fantastic teacher. He knows just how to pull the best out of all that attended the class. He is innovative, charismatic and inspiring. We felt very honored to have him as our Broadway Connection Master Teacher!” - I. Cook
Our Broadway Connection Master Class with J. David was AWESOME. He was great, the kids loved him, and I loved that the dance was ballet based. It was a great experience and the kids were challenged, encouraged and inspired.” - J. Walek
