OUR RESPONSE TO COVID19
Nothing is more important to us than the health & safety of our community. Though we must stay home and social distance in the wake of COVID-19, it doesn’t mean we can’t stay connected and create more art! To make the most of this unprecedented situation, we’ve created new Virtual Programs to help students hone their skills in acting, singing and dance. All classes will be held via the online platform, Zoom.
How Our Master Classes Enhance Student Learning
Our Master Classes are specially designed to offer every student a chance to audition their song during their 5 day session, all while giving the students an opportunity to brush shoulders with some of Broadway’s most experienced performers.
Having a variety of Guest Artists for the Master Classes allows students to interact with different instructors during the week. Studies show that positive experiences with a variety of teachers allow students to learn new concepts in a different way, giving them an added perspective on learning beyond what a single instructor can provide.
Furthermore, studies show that Master Classes allow students to learn as both an active participant and an observer. Sometimes all it takes is watching another student finally master a difficult note or find a way to interpret their song differently in order for something to really “click.” The benefits of observing are limitless.
Additionally, students get a chance to learn alongside other students, which helps motivate them to keep trying and improving. Students thrive on positive feedback from their peers, and are more likely to focus on perfecting their pieces based on what they learn from fellow students.
Students participating in the Juniors Intensive (Ages 8-12) will be working with Kara Lindsay (Broadway-Newsies, Wicked, Beautiful) and/or Brian Michael Hoffman
(Off Broadway-Suessical) for their Master Class.
Students participating in the Teens+ Intensive (Ages 13-22) will be paired up to work with either Christy Altomare (Anastasia) , Jeremy Jordan (Newsies, Waitress) or Corey Cott (Newsies, Bandstand)
Focus of Classes:
Sing and receive individual feedback and coaching on your 32-bar audition cut from one of the Broadway Guest Artists

Students will be randomly selected each session to perform their song.
Every student will get the opportunity to perform their audition cut at least once with one of the Broadway Artists during the week.
