Brooke got her start in Orlando, FL as a competitive dancer. While dance has remained her passion, along the way she found a love for musical theatre, performing, and teaching.
 
Growing up in Orlando with theme parks, theatres, and artistic venues, Brooke had no problem finding performing opportunities. Her young performing years at local community theatres lead her to Dr. Phillips High School where she graduated from the theatre arts magnet. After graduating she kept her Florida roots and attended Florida State University where she received her BA in Theatre while concentrating on Choreography. 
 
Choreographing is a love Brooke found through high school and college when she began teaching and choreographing pieces for theaters and studios. She has been choreographing and teaching all styles of dance for 5 years now and specializes in musical theatre, tap, and jazz. She recently was the season choreographer and competitive troupe choreographer at Magic Curtain Productions, where her piece was recognized with an award for Excellence in Dance for Choreography.

She is so excited to join the Maplewood Playhouse family and can’t wait to start dancing with everyone!

Calling all dancing moms, new college students, entertainment professionals, and at home dancers! Whether the last time you danced was 10 years ago, 2 months ago, or you just want to keep up your technique, this Adult class is for you! Adult Musical Theatre Jazz with Ms. Brooke, will focus on learning proper dance technique while exploring the various dance styles used in Broadway shows such as Mean Girls, Beetlejuice, Hairspray, Hamilton, Chicago and more.  The class curriculum is based on ballet technique layered with Broadway style jazz movement and includes a proper warm-up, stretches, isolations, across-the-floor progressions, and a variety of Broadway styled combinations. Don’t be shy or nervous because ALL levels are welcome! The class is structured to cover all dance levels by teaching and reviewing flexibility, rhythm, and control through basic technique as well working on advanced audition skills like choreography memorization and overall performance quality. There will also be a mock audition class during our 6 weeks where you will get to go through the process of an open dance call and experience what that is like first hand. Since we know how busy life can be, there is a drop-in class option as well. The class will be structured so those who join us every week will progress in skills and knowledge and those dropping in won’t feel they are behind. So, come join us and get back to dancing again!

*Must Reach a Minimum of 4 KIDS for the class to go*
