Broadway began in the 1900s. The very first Broadway musical, opened to a curious crowd discovering the interesting fusion of ballet with dramatic acting. Bob Fosse revolutionized Broadway dance history by creating unconventional movements and creatively using body parts in ways never attempted before.

Broadway dance is continually being written as up and coming choreographers follow in the footsteps of past greats, creating and discovering new styles for an old favourite.
