Broadway Dancer Colin Bradbury stopped by campus on Thursday, Feb. 20 to share his talents with students in Cara Lavallee's Honors Dance class.
Colin is currently on tour with Hello, Dolly! and is performing Feb. 19 - March 1 at the Academy of Music. "I've been trying to get him to EA for a few years now, and the timing worked out perfectly with his Hello, Dolly! tour schedule."
"It was amazing to learn from someone who had actually been on Broadway," shared Arielle Ketchum '20. "Knowing that he and Mrs. Lavallee grew up together and danced together made it even more amazing. Hearing about his story of moving to New York after high school to dance was awe inspiring."
Students learned a musical theater routine from the show Curtains. "The class was very fast-paced, mimicking a professional audition or Broadway rehearsal. The students loved it. Some students even brought their own character shoes for the occasion," said Mrs. Lavallee.
"It was a fast paced class, but being in dance and having taken other dance master classes I was used to it," said Arielle. "I loved Colin's upbeat positive energy. It made the class even more fun."
