In Dance Magazine's latest article, "What Does 'Broadway Choreography' Mean Today?" Jennifer Heimlich notes that in recent years, the landscape of Broadway choreography has been rapidly evolving. Traditionally influenced by jazz, tap, and ballet, today's Broadway shows are embracing a diverse range of dance genres and movement styles — incorporating elements from experimental dance, commercial dance, modern dance, and physical theater.

Prominent Broadway choreographers are at the forefront of this shift, expressing their views on the current state of choreography in Broadway productions. Susan Stroman, known for her work on productions like Contact and Crazy for You, advocates for a return to dance-driven narratives on Broadway. She reminisces about the past successes of iconic choreographers like Michael Bennett and Twyla Tharp, emphasizing the need for Broadway to take chances on innovative dance storytelling.

The intersection of different dance forms and the push for innovation in storytelling through movement signal an exciting era for Broadway choreography. With seasoned choreographers leading the way and a new generation of dancers honing their craft, the future of choreography on Broadway looks promising.
