Earlier this week, the Tony Award winning hit musical, An American in Paris teamed up with The School at Steps to offer a free dance class for kids ages 8 to 12. The class allowed the kids to make their "Broadway debuts" on stage at the Palace Theatre. Conducted by Associate Director/Choreographer Dontee Kiehn and assisted by cast members from An American in Paris including Tony nominee Leanne Cope and Associate Choreographer Sean Kelly, the students learned some of the actual Tony Award-winning choreography by Christopher Wheeldon featured in the musical.
