“Acting is a team sport.”
─ Tony Parise, Artistic Director of Camp Broadway, 42nd Street – Dance Captain and Original Broadway Company
Every moment of this workshop is framed around learning how to open up a line (to get to the goal) and using your teammate (to throw lines to), in order to be fully involved in a scene. Material has been carefully culled from Broadway scripts so that no matter where you are on the stage, you can give specific focus, even when in an ensemble. Students will leave knowing how to embody intimate acting values such as character and emotion, while refining the technical precision of getting the audience to see, hear and understand dialogue on stage.
“When characters can’t talk anymore, they sing. And when they can’t sing anymore, they dance.”
─ Sue Delano, Director of Camp Broadway Dance; My Fair Lady – Pearlie, Mrs. Higgins/Maid on Broadway; Cap21 – Dance Teacher/Choreographer for 11 years
This workshop explores the confluence of Broadway dance styles and how one reflects upon the other, leading participants through classic and contemporary moves. Dancers will stretch their skills, finding ways to use movement to better act and sing, while actors and singers will find a better awareness of how to use their body to communicate. Participants will leave not only with a fluid connection between dance and character, but also with a greater understanding of the deep-rooted history of Broadway dance.
“Singing Broadway brings participants into a professional Broadway music rehearsal.”
–J. Navarro, Camp Broadway Musical Director, Broadway credits include The Apple Tree, Curtains, The House of Blue Leaves, Kinky Boots, Mary Poppins, Next to Normal
During this 90 minute vocal workshop, participants will be immersed in a true Broadway music rehearsal. Participants will learn not only the skills to make the most of their time in a musical rehearsal but will also learn about all the positions in the Music Department of a Broadway show. Young vocalists will have the opportunity to rehearse a musical theater ensemble piece with a Broadway Music Director and experience the excitement that comes with accomplishing the technique.

“How you feel about what a character is like is when you see them for the very first time.”
–Adele Miskie dresser at Motown the Musical

Participants will be taken through the creative process, from initial research and renderings, to the construction of costumes, touching on fabrics, bedazzling, and an introduction to the different members of a costume team. Learn about the intricate choreography that comes with being a Broadway dresser, from presets and quick changes, to managing quick fixes and malfunctions. They will leave with a thorough understanding of costume creation, as well as the different careers available to those interested in the wardrobe world.
