The Broadway Collective is Hiring!

A Typical Day at The Broadway Collective...

Seeing a queer teenager step into their truth and find their courage—while classmates cheer them on.

Watching a shy, timid young woman sing a challenging solo—live, in front of her peers—for the first time ever. And then watching her break into the biggest smile as she realizes, “I am braver than I thought.”

Getting an email from a high schooler who says, “Because of your program, I got into my top choice college to study musical theatre—and got a scholarship, too. My parents and I are sitting here crying. Thank you. You have changed my life.”

Watching kids transform from overwhelmed and insecure….to powerful, radiant, and confident humans ready to take on the world and all the challenges ahead. 

That’s an ordinary day around here.

Sound like your dream opportunity? Want to be part of the movement?

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to shape every student into the best human being they can possibly be, both onstage and offstage.

We show every student: you deserve your future. 

Whether you dream about being on Broadway, touring internationally, or writing your own original show…with self care, a strong work ethic, the right support network, and an ALL IN attitude, we show our students how to turn their dream into a fully realized future. 

What Makes Us Different

At The Broadway Collective, our Faculty is comprised of outstanding, award-winning performing artists and industry creatives who are currently performing in a Broadway show—or who have been cast in a show within the last three years. 

This means that our students learn “what it takes to ‘make it’ as a musical theatre artist” from people who are currently working in the field. 

Another factor that makes us stand out—we provide an online education experience that is above-and-beyond anything in the marketplace. 

With an emphasis on family partnership at the forefront of our curriculum we instill the values of structure, process, and routine with physical coursebooks for all of our programs for both students and parents.

From vocal masterclasses to live-stream performances to mock audition workshops, we do online education like no one else. 

We bring Hollywood-level videography and production to our programs, giving students an incredible experience that is inspiring, motivating, and thrilling. 

We tell our students, “Even though you’re training virtually from home, we want you to feel transported to NYC.”

Our Programs

Hello Broadway

A 12-month program where students receive dance, voice, acting, and audition training from our world-class Faculty.
The goal? To disrupt the culture of arts education.  To show families that a career in the arts requires the same all in dedication of training like an Olympic athlete.  We equip our families to distinguish the difference between training and experiences.  When quality takes precedence over quantity we are able to commit to process over product. In addition to artistic training, students also receive wellness sessions with a licensed therapist, time management coaching, and a support network to set them up for a successful year. Students transform massively during the year, both artistically and emotionally.

Gathered

Our Summer Broadway Bootcamp for young artists who are serious about pursuing a career in the performing arts. 
We gather together NYC’s top talent—Broadway artists, directors, choreographers, and casting agents—and these pros train and coach the students, before a live week of classes students and parents engage in an 8 week online coursework ranging in topics from Marketing for Actors to Musical  Theatre History.  It culminates with a sharecase performance (digital until 2022) where students share what they’ve learned—with family, friends, and members of the theatre community supporting them.

MORE INFO

Prescreen Prep

Our college prep program for high school seniors. 
Getting into a top theatre college is extremely competitive. To stand out and have a real chance at being accepted, you need to present the complete package—a stellar essay, a high GPA, a professional prescreen audition that showcases your strengths, and facility for growth.  Through Prescreen Prep, we show students how to successfully pass the rigorous prescreen portion of the college admissions process, and how to get into their dream school. Over 90% of our Prescreen Prep students get accepted to a top BFA Musical Theatre program, with an average scholarship of $20K per student. More info.

MORE INFO

Hello Broadway Live

This is the entry point to our educational system here for many of our families. 

We see students from all skill levels in this program.  We teach them to learn that process over product is what we stand for here.  Students get personalized feedback and mentorship on their artistic skills, make new friends, and get coached on life skills like goal setting, time management, and creating a winning mindset.

This is an experience that shapes students into stronger artists and more focused, committed students and human beings.  Students continue in Hello Broadway and/or Gathered after this 4 week program.

ABOUT OUR STUDENTS

We work with students from ages 12 to 25. Most of our students are planning to pursue a career in the performing arts. These are serious young artists who are determined to make a name for themselves in the theatre industry. These kids have big dreams–being on Broadway, creating great art, dazzling audiences, and making a difference. They also have all the worries and anxieties that come along with being a young artist: “Am I good enough to make it?” “What if this plan doesn’t work?” “What if I disappoint everyone, especially myself?”

Every day, we watch our students grow, transform, gain confidence, and achieve all kinds of wins. The big, flashy, exciting wins–like getting into a top theatre college program or booking a Broadway role. And, just as importantly, the quieter wins–supporting students as they come into their own, find their voice, learn to advocate for themselves, build emotional resilience, and more.

About Our Parents

Behind every successful artist is a parent saying, “I see you, I believe in you, and I’m here for you.”

Our parents tend to be very supportive of their kids’ futures–and also, they’ve got questions. “Can my kid really make a living as a performing artist?” “Is my kid talented enough to really make it?” “How can I help them succeed?” “Am I pushing them too hard–or not hard enough?” “I love football and I don’t know anything about Broadway: help!”

We support parents and help them grapple with all the highs and lows that come along with raising a young artist. All of our programs include Parents-Only info sessions–a beautiful opportunity for parents to ask questions, get answers, and meet fellow parents who can relate and support each other.
