The Broadway Connection Experience

He was able to provide corrections/critiques and then gave the dancers an opportunity to apply them. They LOVED the class and can't wait until we have Broadway Connection back at our studio again.

Our students wanted something new, different and challenging and Shannon definitely gave them that!  All the students left with a smile on their face and were very excited with what they had learned!
