Straight off his Excel In Motion teaching tour, Brian Henninger has been joined by Broadway Dance Center's Neil Schwartz and Josepth & The Amazing Technicolor Dream tour cast member, Sasha Iman to present their beyond popular Hip Hop fundamentals workshop. More Hip Hop was in store with Tony Tucker (BoSoma Dance) while guest Ballet teachers Shawn Mahoney (Twlya Tharp, Emerson Faculty), Tina Cassidy (AD, Northern Ballet Dance Theatre), and Olga Marchenko (Moscow City Ballet) ensured our classical game was on. In the Acro/Contortion department, former ranked US Jr National Team member Ada Moisescu had our dancers in all kinds of great shape(s). As well, our dancers jammed with a slew of the finest rhythm tap teachers in the New England area including Clare O'Donell (founder, O'D n'Tap), Sean Shizz Fielder (founder, Boston Tap Company), Dan Mitra (Broadway Dance Center).
