Broadway Steps brings to you Adult dance classes of the highest caliber. Our mission is to create a fun and supportive environment where you get the opportunity to dance your heart out!
Jeri Kansas, founder and owner, saw a need for Adults to have their own time to shine. Adults are the ones to motivate, support and be the moving force at home and at work. This is a chance to rejuvenate your soul and enjoy a passionate environment with other adults who love to dance and be inspired by instructors from Broadway and the professional Dance World.
All levels of dance whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned dance student are welcomed.
Every month we will be offering classes in different locations where you can enjoy a social environment at a reception with our instructors and fellow participants. The following day classes will be offered. Building friendships through DANCE is rewarding.
I look forward to inspiring “YOU!”
ABOUT BROADWAY STEPS
Jeri Kansas realized her childhood dream of becoming a ROCKETTE on the stage of RCMH the summer after graduating from high school. Eye high kicks – the signature of the Rockettes – had Jeri opening up in the Easter show.
Peter Gennaro who choreographed Annie on Broadway was a guest choreographer at the Music Hall. Peter selected Jeri and 5 other Rockettes to dance on the Mike Douglas Show. He gave Jeri the opportunity to land her first Equity contract in the Millikan Breakfast Show. Millikan was a highly respected live industrial show that employed the cream of the crop of Broadway dancers presented at the Waldorf Astoria.
Regional theatre followed – Showboat, Mona Lipschitz in Chicago and her first Original Broadway cast credit in SUGARBABIES starring Ann Miler and Mickey Rooney. Gower Champion then handpicked Jeri to create the role of Phyllis in 42nd Street starring Tammy Grimes, Jerry Orbach and Lee Roy Reams. Most recent regional credits include Anytime Annie at Candlewood Playhouse and NC Theatre, Eulalie Shinn in the Music Man, and Tessa Tura in Gypsy.
Ms. Kansas has taught numerous Master Dance classes of all ages and levels. Sharing her passion of dance and the pure joy of movement inspires all her students. Come dance!!!
