This summer our company dancers had the opportunity to go on a dance trip to New York City.  The dancers took classes at Broadway Dance Center and Alvin Ailey.  They learned choreography from Matilda and Aladdin from Broadway cast members, took Horton technique, West African dance, hip hop, tap and contemporary.  The dancers saw two Broadway shows, visited the 911 Memorial, shopped in China Town and toured Times Square.  It was the trip of a lifetime.  A special thank you to Thomas Tours for organizing such an amazing adventure for us!
