BDC gears up for annual Musical Theater Weekend Intensive

Broadway Dance Center is thrilled to once again host its annual Musical Theater Weekend Intensive on June 15 and 16. This incredible two-day workshop features closed classes, professional seminars, mock auditions and exclusive panels for the aspiring Broadway performer. 

Students (advanced dancers ages 14-29) will learn choreography from some of Broadway’s current musical hits, the art of crafting a resume, singing and acting techniques to ace any casting, how to land an agent, and what it takes to stand out at auditions. The weekend will culminate with a mock audition where students will get individualized feedback from industry professionals.

This year’s elite faculty and panelists include some of Broadway’s heaviest hitters: Josh Bergasse (On the Town, Smash, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), Rachelle Rak (Fosse, Catch Me if You Can, Dance Moms), Randy Skinner (Dames at Sea, 42nd Street, White Christmas), Ellenore Scott (So You Think You Can Dance), Sarah O’Gleby (Frozen, The Tony Awards), Lucille DiCampli (agent at LDC Artist Representation) and Jason Styres (CSA casting director). 

“At this intensive, participants will get invaluable insider information on the musical theater industry from the professionals who are currently creating, casting and performing in the most popular Broadway shows,” Josh Bergasse assures. 

Lucille DiCampli agrees, saying, “Each professional who stands before them will, in some way, motivate, inspire or help them to make a breakthrough. As for me, agents rarely look at an artist for who they are, right there in the moment but rather who they could become. With that in mind, it gives me such satisfaction to do these workshops and to see artists succeed in ways they never believed they could.”

The Musical Theater Weekend Intensive is only a couple weeks away! Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to get the greatest Broadway training experience this summer at BDC.

“BDC teachers are active leaders in the performing arts industry,” says Rachelle Rak. “At this intensive, students will learn from the people who are living it. The preparation and information you will receive can only be taught by those who are experiencing it every day.”
