Camp Broadway® introduces young people aged 10 to 17 to the world of Broadway on-stage and behind the scenes. Campers work with Broadway directors, choreographers and musical directors to receive training in acting, scene study, improvisation, music theory, solo and ensemble singing, movement, and dance. This five-day performing arts program offers each camper the opportunity to expand his or her creative talents, build self-esteem, learn the art of collaboration, and gain a fuller respect and understanding of musical theatre.
Camp Broadway® has been proclaimed the “Camp of Dreams” for starry-eyed kids who are just beginning to dream of being on Broadway someday. It is a self-contained summer workshop that travels around the country bringing Broadway to kids. The 40 hours of camp include singing, dancing and master classes for kids ages 10 to 17. No singing, dancing, or acting experience necessary – just a willingness to have fun and a curiosity about what happens on stage and behind the curtain!
With authentic Broadway instructors teaching dance routines and musical numbers at the same break-neck speed as a real Broadway show, Camp Broadway® is a fun-filled week of activities designed to teach kids about the serious business of live theater. One activity is their annual Salute to Singin’ and Dancin’ Kids™ (a special luncheon where campers meet and hear about the various theater jobs from real theater professionals).
