Bringing Broadway Training Directly to San Jose

Musical Theatre Teens are Zoom fatigued.

They are drained and ready to connect again in-person doing what they miss most – singing, dancing, and acting with other teens just like them. 

Hello Broadway Live is a direct-from-Broadway, in-person training experience that gives teens their spark back. 

It’s time to shake off the overwhelm + exhaustion of the past year—together. 

Cue the overture, let’s turn the lights inside back on. 

HOW IT WORKS

Disclaimer: Endless hours on Zoom aren’t happening here. The online prep is self-paced over 2 weeks and takes 2-3 hours. We are leaving plenty of breathing room for schoolwork, other activities, and self-care. This program is built for screen fatigued busy families.

Before the Masterclass

Self-Paced Prep

2 weeks before the masterclass, students will receive a coursebook in the mail and access to a private online student portal where they will connect with each other before the live masterclass. 

Students can expect to spend 2-3 hours per week on their self-paced prep.  

At the masterclass, students will take what they’ve learned in their coursebook to the next level by being coached and mentored by Broadway performers!

If your child has dreams of working in Musical Theatre, then this is the place to be! The team at The Broadway Collective guides them and supports them by opening up opportunities to work with Broadway performers as well as receiving feedback. It’s hard work but SO worth it!”

–Maria, Parent

Honestly? Before The Broadway Collective, 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!”

–Jo

We were literally blown away not only by the professionalism of the team, but the incredible heart they bring to what they do. Robert has created a truly one-of-a-kind opportunity that will leave your child inspired to not only be a better performer but a better person.”

–Sarah, Parent

“You not only train from the top Broadway professionals in the industry, you make so many connections with students that you could potentially work with (or for!) one day. It was the most eye-opening and life changing experience I’ve ever had.”

–Tomi

“I gained a new dedication and passion. The accomplished mentors brought out a performer in me that I had never seen before, and I had never felt this connected to my work. The Broadway Collective creates the space for me to be the best version of my truthful self.

–Ava

The difference in her confidence was ASTOUNDING. As in, "is that my child up there?" It was worth EVERY. PENNY. Also, Robert is a no BS teacher. He tells it like it is...but with love and the desire to help you find your passion. Even if that means it's not to pursue a Broadway career. It really is worth the time and money if your child dreams of being on Broadway.”

–Traci, Parent

I not only learned more than I ever have, but made real connections and friendships. To anyone who doesn't believe it would work online, allow yourself to be surprised and your expectations to be exceeded.”

–Ellie

A Note from Robert

Hello Friends,

Oh my goodness! I’m so excited that you’re here, reading this note. 

I opened The Broadway Collective in 2016 to connect with families and help them make a path to turn their Broadway dreams into a reality.  Every year we have gone on a national tour to meet families and welcome them into our program.

We haven’t been able to do the tour since early 2020 but we are back and I have never been more excited to be back in-person with our students (both vaccinated and in masks).

I remember as a child telling my mom that I wanted to be on Broadway (I was obsessed with Musical Theatre…especially the ​CATS ​soundtrack. I know, I know.

Broadway may seem like a distant dream, but I’m living proof that it’s doable. 

At Hello Broadway Live, we’ll share tools to become a stronger singer, dancer, and actor, and most importantly help you understand that it all starts with mindset, kindness, and self care. This is not about “hustling” and “grinding” and working so hard you flop into a puddle of exhaustion. You’ll learn how to be disciplined and work for your dream while having a full and fulfilling life.

Get yourself (or your child) registered today. I promise: your future self will thank you.

My all,

Robert Hartwell

Founder + Artistic Director
The Broadway Collective
