Take Class For a Good Cause

Last month, former Broadway Dance Center teacher Daniel Curry was seriously hurt during a performance of Broadway's Spider-man: Turn Off the Dark. Curry, a swing in the show, severely injured his foot and had to be taken to the hospital. The performance was canceled.

Anyone who knows the NYC dance community won't be surprised to learn that Curry's fellow teachers and dancers at BDC have come together to support the injured dancer. The teachers listed below will be donating the proceeds from their classes to help aid their friend's recovery. And the best part? You can help out, too! All you have to do is attend one of the classes—it's a win-win for everyone!

In today's dance world, versatility is key. It's not enough to be a master of one style—even when they specialize in one area, dancers are frequently asked to fuse multiple genres, or step out of their comfort zone for specific projects.
