Creation of Broadway Dance

The ancient Greeks incorporated dance into many of their plays, and while it was a style far from what we see today in the grand venues of New York, dance still captured audiences way back when. Broadway as we know it today began in the 1900s, where it was just beginning to make an impact in New York City culture.

The leaders in its creation were the ancient Greeks, as well as George Balanchine.
