Thommie Retter loves the entertainment business. You will see it shine through in his educational products. While living a 3 ½ year run on Broadway playing the role of Mr. Braithwaite in Billy Elliot the Musical, Thommie had the thrill of performing for more than 1.5 million enthusiastic theatergoers. With the curtain closed, he has returned to his first love, teaching dance.

Thommie is the director and choreographer for the NYC Tap Crew, a professional teen tap company in NYC. Thommie is on the Miller Street Dance Academy faculty in Charlotte, NC. Before relocating to the Great State of North Carolina, Thommie had the honor of preparing the one and only Tony Danza for his Broadway show Honeymoon in Vegas. 

Also in his arsenal of tap dance celebrities are Isabela Mercer (Dora) Dora the Explorer, Transformers: The Last Knight, Mila Kunis from That 70's Show and Black Swan, and Meg Donnelly star of Disney's Zombies / ABC's American Housewife, and Larry Saperstein (Big Red from High School Musical, "The Musical The Series."

With his production company, Retter Entertainment, Thommie has produced Off-Broadway productions of 13 The Musical and the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and choreographed an Off-Broadway production of High School Musical. Thommie is developing a new full-length musical with Michelle Soutier, explicitly designed for dance schools, called Mecklenburg County Song & Dance Competition! Thommie's list of students performing in Broadway productions is vast and includes just about every show that has debuted in the last 15 years.

Thommie is honored that you are interested in his works and invites you to look around and share with your students the tools that have worked so well with his own.
