Embodying The Big Apple’s Broadway on the Tomato Capital’s Boulevard!
Broadway on the Boulevard celebrated 5 amazing years of commitment to dance excellence with our annual spring recital - 80s themed! Our families' trust, loyalty and dedication to BOTB was evidently paid off on stage as our dancers shined BRIGHT, increasing their individual ability, talent, performance quality and overall sense of self, EACH and EVERY SEASON! Bring on year #6!
BOTB Dance Company had beautiful weather for our annual performance at the West Pittston Cherry Blossom Festival!
We did it again!!! BOTB was voted BEST DANCE STUDIO OF 2023 in Luzerne County! THANK YOU to our amazing staff, our students, families and biggest fans of support!
In mid-March, BOTB Dance Company competed in Lancaster PA at the first regional competition of the season taking home many special judges awards, platinums and overalls!
On March 5th, we quite literally learned that life is not about waiting for the storm to pass - it’s about dancing in the rain at the Annual Pittston City St. Patrick's Day!
On December 17th, BOTB showcased our annual holiday show “COOL YULE." 2 separate productions in 1 day & they were a VISION! From our BOTB family to yours, happy holidays and here’s to dancing in 2023 :)
Broadway was voted BEST DANCE STUDIO in 2022 and we could not be more grateful to kick off the beginning of our 5th year with such amazing news! Miss Rachel & all Pittston City female small business owners were featured in an article & photographed with the mayor!
BOTB Dance Company went out with a BANG for our 2022 competition season! Special Awards including: "Fast Feet Award, "Broadway Bound," "Hollywood Studio" and our oldest dancers won BIG SHOW SPIN OFF!
BOTB Dance Company rocked the dance competition stage after a long hiatus bringing home high platinum scores, overall and special judge awards including: "Classic & Timeless," "Brought the Sunshine," "Beautiful Hearts," "Elite Entertainment Award," and "Elite Costume Award." Ready for our next one in June!
Both our recreational and company dancers of all ages walked and dance the parade route of our hometown, Pittston City's Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade! We had a blast making an appearance for hundreds of community members!
We hosted our 4th annual holiday show "Adventure to the North Pole" and it was a magical day celebrating the hard work of our dancers and staff from the fall season. We are still on cloud 9 from the overwhelmingly positive feedback from our families, not to mention a SOLD OUT SHOW!
Broadway on the Boulevard staff and families participated in this year's Greater Pittston Santa Squad and donated a variety of toys to children of all ages in need! This is what the holiday season is about!
We moved to a new home -
BIGGER, BETTER & ON THE BOULEVARD!
As Broadway on the Boulevard keeps growing, we relocated to a brand-new space as of June 1st, 2021! Here's to our new journey - creating a modern, artistic and creative atmosphere as we continue to cultivate our vision and spread our passion for the art of dance.
At the end of last month, BOTB Company were able to (safely) travel and compete at our first dance competition in over a year!!! We are so proud, excited and gratified with the growth and progress of each student pictured above. All BOTB routines scored platinums and diamond within the top 3 overalls, and special awards that included:
“Teamwork Makes the Dream Work”
The “Rising Star Award” for the entire division!
FIRST PLACE!!! We are feeling so inspired, amazed, and eternally grateful for being awarded this honor. This past year has been far from easy, but this proves that we are doing something RIGHT and our hard work each day does not go unnoticed!
We at BOTB finally got to host our COVID-friendly taping of “Let Your Heart Be Light” in late January! Not our usual holiday show which made this process THAT much more rewarding, magical, creative and humbling.
We choose the theme of our show “Let Your Heart Be Light” to serve a reminder to all of us in this overwhelmingly crazy year and time, no matter what has or will continue to happen, BOTB will always do our best to spread joy, love and light to our students and families, and we are so proud to have commemorated a great fall season with this upbeat show and message! The show must SAFELY go on!
At Broadway, we prioritize the safety and well-being of our dancers and families. When the pandemic struck in March of this year, we worked tirelessly to smoothly transition our curriculum online for our dancers to continue their education in the comfort of their own homes. Once Luzerne County hit green, we returned to in-studio lessons with new safety precautions and measures, and were able to have a virtual recital where we taped the dancers in their classes and packaged it altogether for our families to document the end of our very successful second year in business. "We can't direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails."
In the beginning of February, our junior, petite and mini levels from BOTB Dance Company took home multiple PLATINUM awards placing in the TOP overalls for their individual divisions in EVERY group routine at Breakout Dance Competition in Somerset, NJ! Our juniors won a special judge's award titled "Perfectly Precise" for their new musical theater number, our petites won a special studio award titled "Outstanding Showmanship" for their new hip hop routine, and our minis won a massive trophy (as tall as them!!!) winning the "Breakout" Tap Award for having the highest scoring routine of ages 12 and under in their division!
We are not only training children how to dance, but also how to give back, and to always be open, kind and grateful 🎁 The week after our Holiday show, we took a few of our pieces to a local nursing home in Wyoming and our hearts were never so full. The smiles and singing of the residents was the best gift we could have ever received! THIS is what the holiday season is all about...this is what BOTB is all about!
In September, Broadway on the Boulevard was voted Best Dance Studio of 2019 for the Greater Pittston Area! We work day-in and day-out to provide our students with a solid dance education built upon appreciation for both the arts and the community. To only have one year in business under our belts and receive an honor like this is so humbling!
