Thanks so much for arranging our Broadway Connection class with BC Teacher, Fred Odgaard (FINDING NEVERLAND) today in NYC! Loved that he was so specific with the girls about movements. What a great class! So awesome for the kids to see the emphasis on movement as opposed to tricks!! Yeah!! Thank you again for these great opportunities for our young people.
