Once a year, Broadway swings are recognized for their vital contributions to the business. School of Rock has some of the best swings on Broadway. I am so proud to work alongside them every day. While all Broadway swings must be versatile and have an excellent memory, our show presents us with some unique challenges. There is a tremendous amount of dance choreography for each role as well as blocking that includes moving desks, props and walls -- and an open pit! Swings are ready to go on at a moment's notice. I cover six different roles in the show including Summer (with solo songs) and Katie (the lead bass player). We work together as a company to be sure that the show ALWAYS goes on! Here's a great photo of all of the School of Rock swings.
