Summer Musical Theatre Training Program

The Summer Musical Theatre Training Program provides students grades 6+ with foundational and expanded understanding of technique in ballet, jazz, music, and acting. Classes will be Monday to Friday at Wintergreen Plaza from 9AM–4PM daily.

Rockville, MD 20852

From the high school musical to the bright lights of Broadway, whatever your musical theater aspirations, your foundation will be in technique training.

Led by highly experienced and sought-after teaching artists, this inclusive three week training program is committed to the development of the next generation of performers by providing focused instruction in an immersive musical theater environment. Each student will be placed into a company based on factors including ability, age, and experience. Companies will train together in technique-specific classes and will work collaboratively during the rehearsal process on assigned musical numbers, vignettes, and scenes to be presented on the last day of the session for family and friends.

*Given the ongoing Broadway shutdown, there will not be a bus trip to New York.


Session I: June 28–July 16

Session II: July 19–August 6

Cost per session: $1,350
