  • Each self-contained workshop is a 4-hour journey, giving each performer a chance to experience the process of learning
    a production number from a hit Broadway musical that features dance and/or stylized movement.


During each class, students will experience the following:


  • An intro about the Broadway musical the number being learned is from.


  • Vocal warm up leading into learning vocal parts and harmonies for the production number


  • Hybrid vocal and movement warm up led by JT


  • A choreography and dance representative from the Broadway team of each show clearly teaches the actual Broadway choreography from their show.


  • The end of each workshop day culminates with the performance of a full song and dance number.


  • All performers will be asked to perform in smaller groups


  • Our panel will watch and give feedback to each performer so they have a takeaway, and the panelists will also award two full scholarships to our next event
