Tap/Musical Theater & Broadway Dance
Broadway Theater, America’s Opera, also known simply as “Broadway,” refers to 40 theaters and their performances in New York City. Many of these theaters are located in the Theater District, on or near the “Great White Way.” Specifically, “Broadway” refers to the area around 42nd to 53rd streets and from 6th to 8th avenues. Shows here are considered the pinnacle of theatrical performances and are widely respected and recognized around the world. Broadway has become so prestigious that it even has its own awards, called the Tony Awards. The history of Broadway theater is a long one that has seen much change and growth in the industry. Much of this change reflects New York culture.
Broadway shows encompass all styles of dance, tap being a major component of many.
In our Tap and Musical Theater Classes dancers study and practice tap technique while also learning the songs, stories, and choreography from the great Broadway shows including: SIngin’ in the Rain, An American in Paris, Annie, Mary Poppins, The Wizard of Oz, Cats and many more!
