Programs & Placement

Students are placed in class according to age and level of dance achievement. Transfer students with previous training will be reviewed & placed according to level structures of Broadway Dance/Little Broadway. Students may be shifted to move appropriate class levels throughout the months of September and October upon teacher recommendation.

Recreational Programs:

Open to all students. Our recreational programs focus on fun, self-esteem and the simple joy found in movement. Students are encouraged to progress at their own pace in a stress free environment.

Pre-Professional / Competitive Programs:

The Broadway competitive program has been cited as one of the finest training grounds for young dancers in New England. Students are accepted into the program by audition or invitation only. Class programs are tightly structured, dress code is strictly enforced and attendance is monitored closely. The program is designed for serious dancers willing to aim for high achievement.

Little Broadway will build its competitive teams based upon the same foundations for excellence
