Why Train With Us

Gold Accent Line

We train our students to love doing the work focusing on the technique and dedication it takes to be come great storytellers.

BAC Jr: is for our younger aspiring artists ages 7 to 11, who are excited to learn and have fun. We take the fundamentals of BAC—finding joy in the work and solid training, and we create an inspiring environment for younger artists to begin to develop their craft. BAC Jr is 4 days during BAC so our youth campers will have an opportunity to learn from and interact with our older campers, becoming inspired by their commitment and passion.

MEET YOUR DIRECTOR & MENTORS

“Be who you needed when you were younger.”

Alexis & Chryssie are the co-founders & directors of Broadway Arts Community since 2017. They are both Broadway and TV veterans and long time best friends who met performing on the 1st National Tour of Fosse in 2001. They have experienced it all working for 20 years on Broadway, film, and television and share a passion for teaching and passing on what they’ve learned. Alexis graduated from Yale University, Cum Laude, with a BA in Theatre Studies, and Chryssie graduated with a BA in Performing Arts from St. Mary’s College and earned a certificate in Musical Theatre Concentration at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York. Throughout their performing careers they have taught dance, directed, choreographed, coached musical theatre performance, acting for the camera, and monologues for auditions across the globe. They have been on faculty at AMDA College and Conservatory for the Performing Arts in New York and Los Angeles. They practice the tools they teach which led them to create this community, a place for emerging artists to gain not only top notch training, but also a family. Knowing an artist has a community to lean on is essential in making it in this industry. We are Broadway Arts Community.

Teaching Philosophy

Gold Accent Line

Our mantra is “The joy is in doing the work!” Our faculty focuses on instilling the work ethic it takes to become a professional on Broadway, as well as an on-camera actor or any other career paths as a professional performing artist. Aspiring artists at BAC will experience what it takes to work in a conservatory type setting where they work together as an ensemble, as well as what it takes to step into a leading or supporting role. BAC students perform several works of original choreography, a 32 bar cut of a song, 3 ensemble music numbers, a monologue, as well as take master classes in all different styles of dance (tap, jazz, lyrical, theatre dance), and receive a professional headshot session. BAC’ers also experience a mock audition with professionals providing feedback, and Q&A’s with all our guest faculty. In addition for those interested there is an information session on colleges and what it takes to be a working professional in our industry.

We inspire our students to find joy in their work while they grow and hone their specific crafts. Our intention is to prepare them for a possible career in the entertainment industry whether on stage or screen and to give them a chance to interact and learn from those who have experienced it all! We find joy I watching our students grow into confident, strong human beings who take what they’ve learned from their hard work and persistence and share their gifts with the world!

Scholarship Fund

Broadway Arts Camp has joined forces with the 501c-3 The New Hollywood  (TNH). TNH is a non profit dedicated to supporting socially conscious change makers and storytellers. Alexis has been a member of TNH for 10 years and is on the board, so it was a natural fit to parter with TNH as Broadway Arts Camp’s official fiscal sponsor. Our intention is to create a Broadway Arts Camp Scholarship Fund which will allow us to provide opportunities to marginalized, less fortunate children giving them a chance to learn from Broadway’s best. In turn 5% of our money raised goes back into TNH initiatives such as micro-grants for socially conscious artists, the TNH Charity Challenge and more! To donate click here  or you can make a check payable to The New Hollywood, and in the memo write “Broadway Arts Camp Scholarship Fund.” Mail the check to 137 North Larchmont #151, Los Angeles, CA 90004. We are very honored and excited to co create with this amazing group of change makers! Every child deserves a chance to learn, grow, push herself, and experience joy! We are passionate about the positive affect arts education has on youth.
