Jumpstart is a chance to...

Dance Act Sing Perform

...and do what you love!

✅  Learn tips from Broadway pros, gain new skills, laugh until your cheeks hurt, and have a blast.

✅  Achieve quick wins and finish the day feeling inspired.

✅  Parents: you’ll love this experience too. Watch your teen’s eyes light up, and see that sparkle, hope, and possibility that (perhaps) you haven’t seen much in the last couple years.

Should you come?
Teens, if:

✔️  You love musical theatre

✔️  You love singing, dancing, acting (or all three)

✔️  You’re obsessed with shows like Hamilton, Hadestown, Wicked, Dear Evan Hansen, and more 

✔️  You would love a chance to meet real-life Broadway performers (and learn from them!)

Parents, if:

✔️  You need fresh parenting ideas

✔️  You’ve got questions about theatre as a career for your teen

✔️  You’re in need of meeting other parents with theatre obsessed teens #supportgroup

✔️  You would love a chance to make a game plan for your teen’s wellness and future success 

Then you both belong at Jumpstart.

Students and Parents *Love*
The Broadway Collective
“I’m a part of a community, and that’s because of my training with The Broadway Collective!”

Vivian, TBC Student

“From my first day with The Broadway Collective, I knew I had people who would support me in my work and never look down at my mistakes. That feeling is incredible and unmatched by anyone else I’ve ever worked with.”

Katarina, TBC Student

“Thanks to The Broadway Collective, I went from being a back row high school chorus soprano afraid to sing solo, to someone who will willingly take center stage and belt it out.

Caroline, TBC Student

“Robert is so inspiring. He makes the students work for what they want but he makes them feel they can reach for the stars and touch them. It’s a beautiful thing to watch.”

Sabrina, Parent of TBC Student

I have never seen my child more passionate about a class and group of people. She has so much energy, dedication and love for her work with The Broadway Collective.”

Brit, Parent of TBC Student

“Training at The Broadway Collective has allowed me to grow as a person and be able to apply the lessons I have learned here to other aspects of my life.”

Ella, TBC Student

“The Broadway Collective allowed me to find myself again.”

Avery, TBC Student

Training with The Broadway Collective is not only an investment in your child, you’re also investing in your community. Our goal as parents should be to produce well-rounded humans, who will make a positive impact in our societies. Not only do they learn how to sing, act and/or dance better, but they learn life skills that will help them in any profession and this journey called life.”

Dawn, Parent of TBC Student

“I can honestly say that my daughter would not be where she is now if it wasn't for Robert and his team at The Broadway Collective. Between her training and his gentle guidance for us in our parental support, we wouldn't have known how to guide her. If you're on the fence, I'd say, make the leap. You will never know what is possible if you don't take the leap.”

Sara, Parent of TBC Student


We welcome musical theatre lovers (ages 12 to 18) of all levels at Jumpstart. 

Whether you’ve performed in 50 shows–or you’ve never set foot in a rehearsal studio before–you are welcome here. 

There will be challenges for every skill level–and so much joy for all.

Before Jumpstart: 

Students, please set up your at-home rehearsal space. This can be your living room, bedroom, garage, patio, attic, or somewhere else. Make sure you have enough space to move around freely and safely. 

We encourage students to come to the workshop rested, hydrated, fueled with good food, and ready to dive in!

There is an all black dress code for Jumpstart. 

Students should wear comfortable clothes that allow for movement. This could be yoga pants and a t-shirt, ballet tights and a leotard, or whatever makes you feel comfortable.

This 4-hour workshop will fly by! After Jumpstart, many students will wonder, “Now what? I want to keep going!”

After Jumpstart, we invite students to enroll in The Academy: our musical theatre program which includes dance, voice, and acting masterclasses (all year long), wellness sessions, performances, a graduation celebration in December, and more. 

There are two Academy tracks: Virtual (online training) and Hybrid (combination of online training + in-person training in New York City). 

No matter where you live, you can work with our award-winning faculty in 2022.

Before Jumpstart: 

Ask your child, “At Jumpstart, what is your main goal? What do you want to learn or experience? How can I help you achieve that goal?” Give your child some time to think about this. Discuss together. 

During Jumpstart: 

We encourage you to attend the parents-only session on January 23. While your child is busy dancing, acting, and singing, parents–we’ve got activities for you too! A great opportunity for you to meet the Broadway Collective faculty and meet fellow parents.

We understand that it’s frustrating when you have big dreams–and a small budget. However, there are no discounts or scholarships for Jumpstart. 

We encourage students to get creative and be resourceful. 

Consider, “How could I earn–or raise–the money I need to attend this workshop?” 

In the past, we’ve had Broadway Collective students babysit, walk dogs, mow lawns, do bake sales, organize fundraiser performances, and more. 

There is always a way to get the funds that you need. $197 is not an unreachable goal. You can do this. And, you’ll feel so proud once you’ve done it.

Please feel free to email hello at bwaycollective dot com.

The Broadway Collective provides musical theatre training to students, ages 12 and up. 

Through our innovative online programs, we bring world-class training to your computer screen and your living room. No travel required. We bring Broadway’s top talent to you.


Our star-studded Faculty includes award-winning Broadway performers, choreographers, directors, NYC casting agents, and more.

Bring your dance, voice, acting skills to a whole new level, become a fierce triple-threat, gain a competitive edge, build confidence and make lifelong friends…with the Broadway Collective.

We believe that talent is great, but hard work will carry you much farther. We’re here to give you the work ethic, life skills, and mindset you need to achieve success on Broadway—or wherever else your future may take you.
