Broadway Workshop’s Excel Teen Intensive – is a five-day summer program geared toward our older students (ages 13-19) with a strong passion for the performing arts. While every Excel student will study the three disciplines of musical theatre (Acting, Singing and Dance), this program allows students to choose a major (Vocal or Acting).

Students will start with a group morning meeting and then head off to their smaller group workshops, where they will receive one-on-one coaching and a more personalized setting in either Vocal (Musical Theater) or Acting (based on their chosen major). In their first class period, students will meet with their main Broadway teaching artist and work on song interpretation, audition technique, and how to connect to their material.

Students will work with their main Broadway teaching artist Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday, and then on Thursday of the program week, each group will work with a Broadway special guest teacher (TBA). On Friday, the students will get to perform their songs/monologues for an industry professional (casting director or agent) to get different feedback. Each day builds on the previous day. Our small class groups allow for students to get comfortable with the other students and teachers and allow them to embrace what is special about them and apply it to their song work.

Students will have a 45-minute lunch break following their morning master class.

Students will return to their smaller groups to take part in a rotating set of acting workshops, including scene-work, improv, and commercial acting. These classes will be led by various Broadway and film/television actors.

In the final part of the day, students will come together for an exciting virtual dance workshop featuring different Broadway guest teachers directly from Broadway’s best dance shows!
