Broadway Arts Studio is a place for performers of all ages and abilities to belong. We believe in teaching a foundation of technique while offering performing opportunities in a non-competitive environment. 


At Broadway Arts Studio, class placement is important to the success and happiness of all students. Please read the class descriptions to ensure that students are registered for the proper levels. Teaching artists at Broadway Arts Studio reserve the right to redirect students to a different level if they feel it is beneficial to the student and the class.
