Broadway Connection Master Classes

Broadway Connection brings Broadway to performing arts students at studios, schools and universities worldwide. Without the cost of travel and lodging, schools now have the opportunity to have the current stars of Broadway teach in their home space. Broadway Connection teachers are traveling to a city near you with every Broadway tour and Broadway production. During Broadway Connection Master Classes & Workshops, students learn to stand out in front of directors, choreographers and professors when auditioning for top universities or the Broadway role of their dreams. Each class ends with a Broadway Connection Q & A where students and parents ask questions and receive detailed advice on education, auditions, Broadway shows and more. Whether polishing dance technique or perfecting triple threat skills, students leave their Broadway Connection class completely inspired, energized and focused to continue training hard and reach new heights!


A FEATURED BROADWAY BOUND STUDENT will be chosen by the teacher after every BC Master Class or Workshop. This is an extra special addition to the class that inspires students to be at their best! The student will be announced at the end of class and then featured on our Facebook page:
