From Professional Dancer to Professor of Dance

Inside the Paramount Theatre Thursday afternoon, 2,800 high-school students roared. Many of the audience members were children of immigrants or immigrants themselves, like the titular Alexander Hamilton, who was born in the West Indies and became one of America’s Founding Fathers. “Hamilton: An American Musical” is playing at the Paramount through March 18. Tickets are hard to come by, and prices range from $250 to more than $1,000. But on Thursday afternoon, the students f...
