The Broadway Connection Experience

My kids were inspired and they are STILL talking about it! He was an inspiration to those that were debating whether or not to continue to do theatre in college. They all ended up going to see the show and he was kind enough to bring them all, and myself included, backstage for a tour after the performance at the Kentucky Center for the Arts. Fantastic experience! We'd love to do it again with another show.

Thayne's positive outlook, sincere encouragement to each dancer and his obvious talent all packaged together made for an inspirational morning.  He had so much knowledge to share and all the dancers came out motivated to work hard and be better.  And I loved the fact that he had so much varied experience -- stage, tv, film, etc!
