Broadway cast hosts dance workshop

The Broadway touring cast of “Mary Poppins” will be hosting a dance workshop for all students, Wednesday afternoon.

The workshop will be held at 11:30 a.m. at 222 Eppler Hall.

The campus philanthropy group “Broadway Cares” helped bring the cast to campus to teach students about being a professional dancer and performer.

“They’re going to be in Toledo for the week so they’re doing a workshop here,” said Cassandra Utt, president of the University’s chapter of “Broadway Cares.”

All students are invited to the free workshop, though everyone in attendance is encouraged to give a monetary donation to the charity, Utt said.

The cast will be teaching students the Broadway choreography to the “Mary Poppins” songs “Step in Time” and “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.”

“It’s really a fantastic experience to bring this to campus,” Utt said. “It will be really exciting to say that we learned it.”
