It may not feel like it now, but summer will be here much sooner than we think. Along with many other dance schools and studios across the country, Broadway Dance Center (BDC) in New York City is preparing to offer an exciting line-up of summer sessions for dancers.
As they plan for summertime, dancers are invited to learn more about BDC’s training programs:
