Planning your group visit to BDC

Do you live outside of NYC but wish that you and your students could dance all day at a studio like Broadway Dance Center, where there are over 350 classes in all styles each week? Well, dreams can come true!

BDC welcomes groups year-round and offers discounted rates for arranged group visits. So even if you live across the country, you can still partake in all the exciting classes that BDC has to offer! And BDC’s Group Services staff will work closely with you when planning your visit, as they know that each dancer in your group may have different needs and expectations, so your stay can be completely customized.

BDC’s ‘Remembering Bettye Morrow’ Class: Commemorating an unsung tap heroine 

We all remember the names of tap greats – Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, the Copasetics, Gregory Hines and Savion Glover. Looking more deeply and broadly, we see that far more dancemakers were influential and accomplished in their own ways. Sometimes it’s up to people who learned from them and worked with them to honor their legacy.

That’s what Justin Boccitto and Germaine Salsberg, BDC tap teachers, recently did in memory of tap icon Bettye Morrow, who passed away in 2016. Boccitto studied with Morrow extensively. Salsberg took Morrow’s class when she was still teaching at BDC, and “saw it as a fun challenge”. On Friday, June 29, they held an Advanced Beginner tap masterclass with Morrow’s material and in her teaching style.
