BROADWAY at The Rose offers two unique educational tracks to fit your child’s specific needs and aspirations:

  • BROADWAY at The Rose Academy students learn the basics of technique in a variety of classes. It is ideal for beginning students OR advanced students who want to hone their skills. It is the perfect way to try a new dance style, experiment with musical theater, test your vocal chops or improve your technique. Most classes meet once weekly for approximately one hour. There are no prerequisites or auditions required for placement in Academy classes. Academy students may enroll in as many or as few classes as they desire and perform in the Spring Concert in May. Open enrollment is based upon class availability.
