Bridge to Broadway classes provide the opportunity for children to sharpen the skills they need to succeed in the professional theater world.
April 23, 2012 - PRLog -- Our goal is to offer the highest level of professional classes for kids of all ages. Classes provide the opportunity for children to sharpen the skills they need to succeed in the professional theater world. We are confident that the knowledge and passion that our professional instructors bring will provide children with better access to the professional world.
