Our students grew technically and loved every minute of class with Lauren. We look forward to our next Broadway Connection!” - M. Larnard
Chaz was an awesome instructor and inspired the kids to work on the acting and improvisation parts of musical theater and not just the tricks.
He was very informative at the question and answer period at the end - sharing his experiences with the dancers and helping them understand that it takes hard work to be a professional dancer/performer, but that it is possible and all worth it!
