The Broadway Connection Experience

Joey was a great teacher and made sure every student was getting the choreography and not just the steps but the choreographer's intent behind each step. He shared not only his passion for the choreography but his love of teaching.

Thayne was a fantastic teacher!  He challenged our students while still helping them feel successful.  He is not only an amazing performer, but a great teacher as well!  The skill and knowledge he brought to our students was invaluable.
