Musical theatre dance classes also known as theatre or Broadway dance teach students how to sing whilst dancing – to control the breath and reserve energy, whilst at the same time telling the dramatic story being explained through the song. Musical Theatre dancing is less of a particular style, and more of a description of dancing that is rooted in the diverse history of Broadway musicals. Relying heavily on a knowledge of ballet, tap, and jazz, musical theater dancers are, first and foremost, actors and place a high focus on musical interpretation.
