Honestly before Hello Broadway, I was so scared of being on stage. But I have been able to open up and now I’m not only confident in my singing, but my acting and dancing as well! This program has brought me so much wisdom and experience that I missed out on – I only started theater last year!

The biggest things I've learned in Hello Broadway is trusting myself and talents and opening myself up to others, along with bettering my skills and finding the deeper meaning in storytelling.

Hello Broadway has helped me be more confident in my singing and acting. The teachers give me feedback that I understand and am able to process quickly. I love it so much, but there is a lot of work! You have to be willing to put the effort in!

Susan F.

Before I started Hello Broadway, I felt like I was "good enough" and played things safe. Now, I have learned to take risks and create a story in everything I do. I think I am a completely different person/performer than I was a year ago. I have also found people who are like me and understand me. No one at my school has the same passion that I do, and here I am connected with people who are just as enthusiastic about theatre as me.

Gabriella M.

I used to be terrified to watch myself perform, but through Hello Broadway, I have gotten past that fear. I’ve also been so inspired by everyone in this group to always reach out. This group means so much to me!

Lissa P.

Before I felt like I was just an actor who would sing and dance for fun, but after almost a year of Hello Broadway, I feel more comfortable calling myself a triple threat! Hello Broadway has taught me that I have a lot of work to do to achieve my dreams, but it's given me the resources and empowerment to get there. I've learned so much about how to effectively manage my time. My confidence has skyrocketed since I started this program.

What is Hello Broadway?
Hello Broadway is an online academy for aspiring performing artists and is a key part of The Broadway Collective educational system. Run on a trimester schedule, Hello Broadway brings Broadway performers and creatives directly to your home weekly by providing training, structure, and routine for young artists. The Hello Broadway curriculum covers all aspects of performance including master classes and assignments in Dance, Voice, Acting, and Artistic Mentorship, ranging in styles from classical to contemporary and everything in between. After completing and uploading assignments to our interactive online portal, our team of Broadway mentors, give personalized weekly feedback to each student on their work and monitors their growth throughout the year. Hello Broadway also provides an incredible online community for both students and parents, where we encourage our students to create meaningful relationships and to learn from their peers. Hello Broadway prepares students for a life in the theatre --- and helps people get on the path towards achieving their dreams of being on Broadway.
How does Hello Broadway work?
For the first three months of each trimester (trimester = 4 months), you will receive a new master class weekly in Dance, Voice, Acting, and Mentorship.

After attending your online class, you will film and upload your homework to our interactive online portal where you will receive weekly personalized feedback from one of our Broadway educators.

In the fourth month of the trimester, students will engage in Structured Review and Personal Assessment. This includes revisiting the most challenging material from the past three months for professional review and a one-on-one mentorship call with their personal Broadway mentor.

All you need to make Hello Broadway work is an internet connection, a smart phone, and two hours a week to do the work. Not only are our students honing their skills, but they are also developing a widely diverse audition repertoire that will serve them both in the college audition process and beyond.

What's the investment?
Hello Broadway is 12 monthly payments of $395, or an upfront payment of $3,995 for the 12-month training program (that’s 2 months free!). This includes weekly downloadable material, personalized weekly feedback, and mentorship.
I’m not sure I have what it takes to be a Broadway performer. How do I know if I’ve got enough talent? Is HELLO BROADWAY a good idea for someone like me, or is it pointless?
As a famous athlete once said, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”

If you dream about being on Broadway, then we urge you to take your dream seriously. Work hard. Go for it.

Many of the top Broadway performers aren’t necessarily the most talented. They’re the most dedicated.​ They’re the ones who work hard, train daily, and refuse to give up.

There’s no way of predicting exactly what the future will hold. And even if your life ultimately takes you in other directions—composing, choreography, directing, producing, or a career outside of the performing arts—the confidence and skills that you build inside ​HELLO BROADWAY​ will set you up for success.

I can’t afford HELLO BROADWAY. Do you offer any discounts or scholarships?
No, we don’t. We have a kid named Jack who’s enrolled in ​HELLO BROADWAY​ right now. His family couldn’t afford it, so Jack started mowing lawns after school until he earned the money by himself. He’s one of our most committed, hard-working students—and he recently booked the leading role in a regional theater production of ​Newsies. (​ His first paying gig as a performer.)

Jack is fighting for his dream, even if it means working odd jobs on weekends and after school.

If money is tight, then we urge you to find your inner Jack. Be resourceful and find a way to gather the funds that you need. Do a bake sale. Mow a lawn. Make it happen. You'll be so proud that you did it. You’ve got to have skin in the game.

Who are some of the Broadway pros I'll be working with?
Inside ​HELLO BROADWAY​, you’ll meet the most amazing coaches + mentors. Click here to see our coaches!
My life is already pretty busy. How much time do I need to set aside each week to participate in HELLO BROADWAY?
HELLO BROADWAY​ is a 12-month commitment with a new assignment to complete every week. We take off for major holidays.

After 12 months, if you've completed every single assignment, you receive a certificate of completion that you’re welcome to mention on your college applications and/or résumé.

Every student is different, but as a general guideline, we encourage you to set aside 2-4 hours a week to rehearse, post your assignment, and get feedback from your Broadway coach. If you can make even more time, great!

What if I enroll in HELLO BROADWAY but then I can’t keep going and I need to drop out?
Please don’t drop out. Please honor the commitment you’ve made to yourself, to your artistry, to your future career, and to our hardworking team of teachers and coaches. We’re showing up for you. Please show up for yourself, too. Don’t quit.

That being said, we understand that sometimes “life happens” and sometimes illnesses, moving, school and family changes can disrupt your schedule. If you’re falling behind, you can request a little more time to catch up on your assignments. We can give you a 2-month extension—free of charge. You won’t receive coaching or feedback during these extra 2 months, but you’ll still be able to log into the ​HELLO BROADWAY​ classroom to post your assignments and get caught up.

HELLO BROADWAY sounds amazing, but I’d prefer to do training in person—not online. Do you have any other programs?
Yes! Check out our revamped 2020 North American tour ​Hello Broadway Live—which includes a full-day master class in NYC + 1 month of free Hello Broadway to prep—and our annual GATHERED​ event in New York City. We love the Internet, but we’d love to see your face in the offline world, too.

Hello Broadway has taught me about gratitude and appreciation, and the importance of being able to take constructive criticism and apply it. I have grown as a performer and human being, and I feel more capable in most aspects of my life because of it.

Sarah F.

Getting feedback from people who actually do what you want to be doing later in life is AMAZING. They really know what it takes. You get an opportunity to hone in on the places that might need more work in a no judgement environment where everyone is supporting each other and there is only room to grow. Hello Broadway is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

Casey R.

The mentorship in Hello Broadway has been incredible. I've gotten such great audition advice and love the detailed individual feedback. It's a great supplement for me in what I feel that my training is lacking at the moment, for it truly provides the whole package and addresses all areas of artistic and personal development.

Christina T.

I'm really loving all the content! All of the classes have been a huge challenge for me one way or another, but I can see the improvements in myself and all the fields that I’ve been working on!
