The Concept

This itinerary has been carefully planned for schools interested in combining both Performing and Visual Arts students on the same tour.

Students have the opportunity to participate in Broadway Workshops run by professional actors and trained teachers, and are designed to increase their skills across a range of acting, dance and music workshops at both beginner and professional standards. Workshops can be customised to your specific requirements and student level.

Students will also incorporate visits to many of NYC’s main attractions in combination with the Performing Arts highlights throughout this 10 day program.
