Suzanne Hylenski on Her Broadway Debut

This installment of Gotta Dance! showcases Suzanne Hylenski, who is currently appearing in the ensemble of Broadway’s Mary Poppins. This hoofer is no stranger to the stage—in the U.K., Hylenski has appeared in Chicago, The Producers, Fosse and Carousel, to name a few. At the age of three, the British-born dancer had so much energy, her mother enrolled her in ballet classes. After falling in love with dance, she fell head over heels for an American gent, who convinced her to “take the plunge” and move to New York City. Click below to see Hylenski show off her high kicks in a photo shoot with photographer Matthew Murphy!
