If you have ever wanted to give your students a once-in-a-lifetime experience that is not only unique, but is educationally sound as well as challenging, then BROADWAY WORKSHOP is the program for you! This program can be experienced as a 1-day event for groups local to New York City, or it can be integrated into your multi-day tour. Whatever option you choose, your students will be immersed in the life of a Broadway Performer through workshops, activities and Q&A's with real Broadway performers.

BROADWAY REHEARSAL WORKSHOP - This session is taught by a Broadway performer from the show your group is seeing during your visit.

A little more about our New York City tours for Dance & Theatre groups:

We at 42nd Street Tours & Travel understand the reason Dance and Theatre groups consistently book with us over other travel planners.  Planning a New York City tour is complex and an understanding of the city is required for a great dance or theatre trip.  Since we are local to the area and our on-site tour escorts navigate the city daily, your group will always be in good hands. We know the subway lines, the bus routes, the scheduled construction, the street fairs, the closures and anything else that could interfere with a successful group tour in New York City.  We're local and we know New York!  Why travel to New York City, the most complex destination, with a company from Orlando, Minnesota, or Pennsylvania?  

Our partnership with Broadway Workshop:

We are proud of our partnership with Broadway Workshop, New York City's leading year-round performing arts school for young performers.  Our partnership has enabled us to offer workshops with more variety of content and the highest quality teachers available.  We are able to book workshops for our dance and theatre groups with cast members from any Broadway Show.
