Broadway Dance Center’s rich history starts in New York City in the early 1980s, when dancers flocked to NYC to train and vie for a spot on the fabled Broadway stages. Business-owner and avid dance fan Richard Ellner assumed ownership of Hines-Hatchett Dance Studio located at 1733 Broadway (corner of Broadway and 55th Street), renaming it Broadway Dance Center. He then set out to create a studio that would provide a true home for teachers and dancers. Over the years the studio has grown to be one of the top go to places for professional dancers to train. It has moved locations a few times, currently located on 45th st. in the midst of Times Square and the Broadway theatres. Today BDC offers over 350 classes a week. With even more innovative workshops, master classes, and programs as well as their expanded Shop and social media presence, they are always carefully crafting new and exciting offerings for dancers of every path in their endless effort to inspire the world to dance! Just as Broadway Dance Center became the fulfillment of Richard’s dreams, they know that, somewhere within the walls of their dynamic studios, BDC can do the same for you.
