Take a look through all the amazing Broadway creatives + performers who have been a part of Gathered (how many Tony Award nominees and winners can you count?!)
Travel + accommodation is not included in tuition.
You don’t need to be the “perfect” dancer, vocalist, or actor. If you are ready to work hard, willing to push yourself to achieve more than you thought you were capable of, and want to fully immerse yourself in the lifestyle of a performing arts professional for a week – you belong at Gathered!
The Hello Broadway trifecta is built around skills-based training. If you are seeking to independently train your voice, acting, and dance skill sets, visit this link and learn more about how you can get year-round focus on your performing arts development and weekly mentorship with Broadway performers.
The online work will be research- and performance-based. Students will research the industry and the Broadway professionals they will be coaching and dining with in NYC. On the performance side, students will prepare the songs and monologues they will be live coaching in NYC.
A physical coursebook will deliver by mail three months before the start of the session. This coursebook contains research and technique assignments that assure students are mentally and physically prepared for our live week together.
Here’s a look at what we will cover in the Coursebook:
Week 1: Golden Age Uptempo Song
Week 2: Golden Age Ballad Song
Week 3: Contemporary Uptempo Song
Week 4: Contemporary Ballad Song
Week 5: Rock The Audition: Motown & 70s Folk/Rock

You aren’t obligated to book into this hotel, however parents + students will be required to meet at our partner hotel each morning and evening for student dropoff / pickup.
We've gathered (ha!) 10 Fundraising Ideas to help you save up and make your Broadway Collective training a financial possibility!
And yes, we've had several students reach their fundraising goals because they made the commitment to overcome their circumstances. Whether it’s babysitting, mowing lawns, getting a part-time job after school, or crowdsourcing your funding, there’s a way to make this happen. You’ve got this!
Parents are responsible for dropping their student off each morning in the hotel lobby at 7:30am sharp, and picking up their student from the lobby at the end of each day.
We kindly ask parents to refrain from joining us for meals and show outings. We have Gathered chaperones to supervise students during those times.
During Gathered, there will be 2 Parents-Only Sessions with founder of The Broadway Collective Robert Hartwell and his amazing mother Elizabeth. This is the time for parents to ask questions about the business and life in NYC that they may be too afraid to ask their child—and also, to find support in what can be such a daunting task of raising a young artist. These Parents-Only Sessions were a huge hit last year—and we look forward to doing these again!
So I sat in this studio yesterday in tears because I realized that what I set out to build was working. All of the students who came to film this year's Gathered promo video were all students of mine in the original Gathered in 2016. They all trained with us at The Broadway Collective throughout their high school careers and now they are all pursuing BFA Musical Theatre degrees at top universities here in NYC. I was moved by their love for this program and for what their being here in the city means.
It’s simple: the work works. I’m looking for workers this summer at Gathered 2020. I’m not after perfection or excuses. I’m looking for students who want to go deeper in their training and are ready to meet their fear with a newfound resiliency and work ethic. I know on the other side of doing this work together there will be a confidence that will be unshakeable. I know it’s an investment, but I promise you one thing: if you do the work, your life will be changed. I’m so ready for you to experience Gathered. I’ll see you in NYC, friend!
