As a dancer the music dance theatre program, who is pursuing his goal to be on Broadway, the chance to be the dance captain for a musical is a priceless opportunity. When I was asked to be the dance captain for BYU’s stage production of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, I jumped at the opportunity. Getting the chance to work closely with a director like George Nelson as well as choreographer Becky Write Phillips was something I could not pass up, even though I was taking 21 credits; it was a challenge I was willing to take on. I knew the experience was something I needed for my resume since I did not have much experience in professional theatre.
