    Its showtime!!! There is no better location to excite your performing arts students about their subject than New York; the home of Broadway.   40 theatres on and off Broadway make up the theatre district in the city so in terms of performance you will be spoilt for choice.    Students will be able to participate in Broadway life by taking part in an acting or dance workshop designed around a particular show which they later go on to see, greatly enhancing their appreciation of the performance.

    Alongside the performances, seeing the city's famous sites and iconic landmarks will offer a memorable study experience that is difficult to beat.


  • Reasons to Visit
    1. Broadway Classroom Workshops

      A great opportunity to experience Broadway not just visit it. Workshops are designed to introduce basic theatre skills through physical and vocal warm-ups, focus/listening exercises and theatre games. More tailored sessions are available in stage combat, improvisation as well as ‘Step by Step', a dance master class in the style of the show you're seeing. Students can also get audition tips from a casting director to give them an advantage in this competitive world.
