We offer an amazing range of theatre workshops from Dance to Stage Combat to Musical Theatre. All our workshops are specially tailored to suit your group’s age and ability or to the show you are seeing.

In addition to attending our wonderful theatre workshops, New York, the 24 hour, full-on city has an overwhelming number of activities and sights. Be dazzled by Times Square, ascend the iconic Empire State Building and cruise across to the symbolic Statue of Liberty - and, of course, shop ‘til you drop at Macy’s and Bloomingdales.

Where to stay

We offer a range of fantastic hotels or hostels in Manhattan so you can stay in the "buzz" of the city. For superb value we can offer the Holiday Inn Express in Meadowlands, a short train ride from the centre of Manhattan. Alternatively, you can stay at the YMCA WESTSIDE, which is 10 minutes from Broadway. Please note that bed sharing is common in New York so advise us if you prefer not to have this option.

Our Broadway theatre workshops

Our spectacular theatre workshops are led by qualified Broadway professional instructors and based in central Manhattan. Here are three of the many workshops we offer:

Musical Theatre Song & Movement (1 ½ Hours)

Your group will be provided with sheet music and work with a cast member (from a show you see) and a pianist to recreate a true Broadway rehearsal. Students will learn choreography, staging and music directly from the Broadway production they are seeing.

Making a Scene (1 ½ Hours)

Students will be encouraged to make bold and creative acting choices in this workshop, during which a professional actor or teaching artist will advise them on vocal techniques and character development. Working from a scripted scene, students will interpret and bring a text to life in truthful, imaginative and specific ways. Come prepared with a scene of your choice, or one can be provided for you.

Stage Combat (1 ½ hours)

Our most popular workshop! A fun and interactive session that culminates in students creating their own combat sequence under the guidance of two teaching artists. The session heightens focus, safety, and listening skills.
