Saturday mornings just got a lot more fun with Broadway Bound Beginners, the newest addition to our growing set of community programs! In BBB, students will spend eight weeks singing, acting, and dancing to Broadway’s best. Student voice is centered in this program with students inspiring the content we cover from choosing our song selection to creating dialogue and characters. At the end of the program, students will showcase all they have learned in a final sharing for grownups, friends, and family.
Students in this program will develop confidence and competence as artists and as people. BBB members will also participate in master classes with Broadway performers, and will be granted future entry into our middle school and high school community ensembles.
Location: St. Michael’s Church, 225 W 99th St, New York, NY 10025

What can I expect from BBK programs? All Broadway Bound Kids classes are taught by professional teaching artists and foster an environment of trust, community, and fun. Our student-centered programs are designed to meet each student where they are, provide space for the group’s creativity, and hone their performing arts skills. Classes are catered specifically to the age group of enrolled students to create challenging but achievable goals. BBK teaching artists are trained to bring mindfulness and social-emotional learning to their classrooms, all while having a great time!
Do you allow students to drop into classes? At this time we cannot offer drop-ins during weekly classes as capacity is limited. However, keep a lookout on our website for one-off programming if you’re looking for a smaller time commitment!
