Getting to NYC
Hotel + airfare are not included in your tuition for Gathered 2022.
We suggest flying into LGA, JFK, or EWR airport. All 3 airports have Uber or Lyft that will bring you directly into the Theatre District. It will take you 45-90 minutes to travel in from the airport.
If you prefer to bus in please come into Port Authority or train into Penn Station.
The following hotels are in the area of the event, however, The Broadway Collective has no relationship, group block, or affiliation with any of the hotels listed. The Broadway Collective does not review, endorse, or recommend these hotels. We are merely providing information about what is located nearby. You should confirm that a hotel meets your needs before booking a stay.
Gathered 2022 will be a fully vaccinated and masked event. Students and parents will be required to show proof of vaccination to confirm enrollment and enter the studio.
Our company is based in NYC and is following our union guidelines that govern the reopening of Broadway theaters.
We respect every family’s choice to decide what is best for them. However, The Broadway Collective is reentering in-person training vaccinated and masked.
We are not doctors. We are not lawyers. And we are not scientists. We are a New York-based collective of artists who have had to make a decision to protect our team and families who train with us.
With the deepest care and respect, no exceptions will be made.
F A Q
Gathered is a rigorous summer musical theatre training program.
Students receive 4 weeks of preparation work followed by a week of intensive training in NYC.
Dance, singing, acting, audition techniques, fitness conditioning classes, vocal health, wellness coaching, career mentorship, and more.Classes are led by Broadway artists, choreographers, and casting directors.
Gathered is for serious, committed young artists. If musical theatre is your greatest passion and you want to pursue a career in this field, then you belong at Gathered.
This is an experience that shapes you into a stronger artist and a more focused, committed student and human being.
We accept students aged 12-18 into Gathered. There are only 60 spots per session. We recommend new students have an intermediate-to advanced-level skill set in voice, acting, and dance technique. Dancers will be pushed to sing. Singers will be pushed to dance. Everyone will do it all… because that’s how we roll on Broadway!
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!
No. There are no auditions for Gathered.
We recommend that students have intermediate- to advanced skills in voice, acting, and dance technique.
If you’re not sure if you meet this criteria, email us at hello at bwaycollective dot com to discuss your situation.
You don’t need to be a “perfect” dancer, vocalist, or actor. We’re not looking for perfection. We’re looking for determination, passion, heart, spirit, and a willingness to put in the work and improve.
It’s okay if you’re a strong dancer but a shaky singer, or a fantastic actor who rarely dances, or vice versa. Come to Gathered. Let’s get to work on making you a well-rounded performer. That’s what we’re here for.

*Pay Over Time with 4 monthly payments of $1395
In addition to the live week of all-day-long masterclass training and 4 weeks of online curriculum, student tuition includes a coursebook, 5 days of Swag (the official uniforms for Gathered), all sheet music, and a parent workbook. Students will end Gathered with 6 new mp3s + sheet music for their audition portfolio.
In the 4 weeks leading up to Gathered, students will be mentored and prepare for the live intensive within our private online community. This will require a 3-5 hour commitment within the student’s schedule and time.
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 during Gathered. On the performance side, students will prepare the songs and monologues they will perform at the live event.

We don’t believe in the word “can’t”. We want you to become a more versatile performer.

We expect you to show up with fierce commitment and treat each training session seriously.
We have a dress code of black dance clothes and your official Gathered t-shirt, which will be mailed to you after you register. For dance classes, please wear jazz shoes.

A NOTE FROM YOUR HOST WITH THE MOST
In 2020, Broadway shut down.
But you know what happened? The Broadway Collective got to work. We knew we were the leaders in online Musical Theatre education and made a vow to show up for our Broadway community, families we get to serve, and team.
You can’t keep NYC down.
And now that Broadway has triumphantly returned, the requirements, demands, and expectations have become even greater.
When I opened The Broadway Collective in 2016, I had a dream to connect students from all over the world with Broadway directors, choreographers, and casting directors. I didn’t want Gathered to be “another summer camp” so I knew rigorous training with clear expectations, process, and a core curriculum had to be our foundation.
That didn’t stop last summer online because of the pandemic and it won’t stop now.
It’s simple: nobody does online Musical Theatre education like us.
And as long as there is breath in my body I will be looking for students who want to be active participants in shaping their futures.
This summer at Gathered 2022 we’re looking for workers. We’re not after perfection or excuses. We’re 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 future will be transformed because THE WORK WORKS.
I’m so ready for you to experience Gathered LIVE IN NYC.
One very excited New Yorker.
