Sam Davis and Patrick O’Neill in collaboration with Open Jar Institute present

TIME STEP SYMPOSIUM - A Round Table Discussion on Creating Dance Music

With Susan Stroman, Andy Blankenbuehler, JoAnn M. Hunter, Sam Davis, David Krane and Alex Lacamoire


Let’s face the music...there’s a problem looming on The Rialto. As emerging choreographers evolve into the creators of tomorrow, an important relationship remains undeveloped, un-fostered, and untaught. How do we create original dance music when we need to tell new, inspired stories on stage?




We invite you to join us live on September 7, 2023, digitally or in person, from Open Jar Studios in New York City for a round table discussion with some of Broadway’s most prolific choreographers and dance arrangers on how they blend movement and music to bring stories to life through dance on Broadway.


Joined by director/choreographers Susan Stroman (Crazy for You, The Producers, Contact), Andy Blankenbuehler (Hamilton, Bandstand, In the Heights) and JoAnn M. Hunter (Bad Cinderella, School of Rock, Disaster!) with dance arrangers Sam Davis (New York New York, Company, An American in Paris), David Krane (Cabaret, She Loves Me, The Music Man) and Alex Lacamoire (Hamilton, Dear Evan Hansen, In the Heights), TIME STEP will highlight where they find inspiration, how they navigate the creative process, and the necessity of collaboration in bringing some of the most magical and successful moments on Broadway to life.


TIME STEP celebrates the relationship between music and dance on Broadway and beyond by inspiring creatives to continue creation. 


And now let’s take it from the top.
