To provide youth and young adults of all socioeconomic backgrounds with performance training, life skills building, and mentorship opportunities from the entertainment industry’s most distinguished talents.

Established in 2006 by casting executive Annette Tanner, Broadway Dreams empowers aspiring young artists through performing arts training, with a focus on the acting, voice, and dance disciplines. Program intensives are offered nationally and internationally throughout the year and are led by an exceptional faculty of respected entertainment professionals who:

  • assess where all students are in their development process — and where they need to be;
  • teach students practical skills that can be applied immediately to elevate performance levels; and
  • guide students to achieve physical, emotional, and artistic self awareness that can be channeled effectively in their work.

Broadway Dreams has provided me a life-long family of fellow dreamers who share my love and passion for storytelling, art, and life.


For more than a decade, Broadway Dreams has maintained regular residencies nationally in such cities as New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Charlotte, and Philadelphia — and internationally in Fortaleza, Brazil; Moscow, Russia; Toronto, Canada; and beyond. In doing so, a global community of thousands has grown, bound by the skilled craftsmanship, passionate creativity, and professional access that a Broadway Dreams education provides.
