As part of the Program in Dance’s spring 2021 co-curricular dance offerings, Afra Hines leads a virtual workshop inspired by Savion Glover’s choreography from Shuffle Along.

Curated by Princeton alum Adam Hyndman ’12 and taught by Hyndman and guests, this series of online workshops provides the opportunity to learn from some of Broadway’s top performers. Over the course of the semester, the class will survey a wide range of genres and feature the most contemporary dance styles currently being utilized on Broadway. All levels of experience welcome.

These virtual classes are free and open to all University students, alumni, faculty, and staff. 


To take advantage of our unique class offerings and virtually train with professionals outside of coursework, visit the Co-Curricular Offerings page for more information on each class. Participants will need to log in to the Broadway class page with Princeton University ID to get the Zoom link.
