Broadway Artists Alliance is the elite Musical Theatre intensive, founded with the goal of providing professional level training to talented young performers in Acting, Voice, and Dance. Every year, BAA holds auditions throughout the country searching for performers to join their audition-based Summer and Winter Intensives. In 2016, BAA is excited to announce Live Auditions in the Cleveland area, alongside Beck Center.

Through their exclusive classes taught by Tony Award® winners, Broadway performers, and top industry professionals, BAA students work to develop their “Triple Threat” performance skills. Students learn about the business, exploring their creative talents, developing their performance technique, and building confidence in a challenging and supportive environment. Students also perform in a final NYC industry showcase, getting insight into the professional world, and learning how market themselves to their best advantage.

Students receive group instruction and private coaching in disciplines such as audition technique, song interpretation, monologue work, scene study, on-camera acting, and musical theatre dance. Instructors include Tony Award® Winners Kelli O’Hara, Sutton Foster, and Jason Robert Brown, and Broadway and Television professionals such as Lea Michele, Megan Hilty, and Kyle Dean Massey.

BAA students receive exceptional training from the best in the business and, as a result, can be seen in Broadway and off-Broadway productions, national tours, film, television, commercials and print! Past students include Grammy® Nominee Ariana Grande, Broadway’s Casey Butler (Finding Neverland) Kyle Taylor Parker (Kinky Boots), Clay Thomson (Newsies, Matilda), Emerson Steele (Violet) and Emma Howard (Matilda, Violet), just to name a few. Broadway Artists Alliance alumni have performed on Broadway in: Matilda, Billy Elliot, West Side Story, Elf, 13: The Musical, Kinky Boots, Violet, Annie, Mary Poppins and more!
