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.” - J. Braudt
The students and teachers were truly moved to enjoy their dancing and give it purpose today at our Broadway Connection class with Robert Hartwell.
He was authentic and really gave the dancers great inspiration with his class in so many ways.
We look forward to future Broadway Connection classes and working with you on planning these inspiring events.
