Broadway Workshop’s Junior Excel Intensive is a 5-day program geared toward students ages 8-14 with an extremely strong passion for the performing arts. Junior Excel students will study the 3 disciplines of musical theatre in small groups, broken down by age. Students will prepare solo and small group pieces in preparation for our end of program production, where they will perform for a panel of New York agents, mangers and casting directors, as well as family and friends. Our final presentation will take place in an off Broadway theatre venue in NYC.
Our past showcase guests include: Telsey + Company Casting, Jennifer Rudin Casting, the LA division of Disney Talent Development, Tara Rubin Casting and many others.
Each day begins with a group warm up, students will then split up into smaller groups (by age) where they will have master classes in Song Interpretation/Musical Theatre Performance, Acting/Monologue preparation and Dance Master Classes making up their Core schedule. In addition to the Core classes, students will have special guest workshops with New York’s top Casting Directors, Broadway Actors, Musical Directors and Choreographers. This fast moving day will challenge each student and allow them to take the next big step in their training, while having an incredible time!
