After we have run through everyone's audition cut, your Broadway instructor will lead the class in a mock dance audition!

During the 11-weeks, we will also pair you up with scene partners to run mock acting auditions!

Moreover, we’ll make recommendations of song cuts you should add to your repertoire and we will begin to hone those new song cuts!

Final Showcase: 
On the last day, actors will perform a variety of the material they have mastered for 10 scouting agents and managers, as well as family & friends!
