INTERNATIONAL ENGAGEMENT

Broadway Dreams has solidified its position over the past decade as a leading provider of arts education services throughout the United States — and, with that, has come the recent demand to bring the organization’s trailblazing methodologies abroad. International partnerships of the highest level signify the importance of the performing arts in further intercultural understanding and allow the Broadway Dreams faculty to engage and inspire artists in countries around the globe, including:

GERMANY

– Rust

In association with Europa-Park and Europa-Park Talent Academy, Broadway Dreams presented its signature Weeklong Intensive at one of Europe’s largest theme parks and resorts, for the first time in September 2018.  Founded in 2014 by Katja Mack, the Europa-Park Talent Academy has over 50 different courses and more than 500 members in the fields of dance, art, artistic, music, and fitness year-round, and this partnership was designed to expand the portfolio of subsidized opportunities made available to the community’s youth, enhancing their appreciation for and understanding of dance, music, and art.

NEW ZEALAND

– Auckland

In 2018, Broadway Dreams entered into a partnership with a charitable trust headquartered in Auckland, New Zealand, designed to provide students of all ages and abilities the opportunity to pursue their professional aspirations.  Through an annual training program, students gain access to support from local leaders, including those who have been affiliated with such esteemed institutions as the New Zealand Opera and New Zealand Performing Arts, and select members from the American Broadway Dreams team.  This special program helps put New Zealand talents in the spotlight with a main-stage performance and reinforce the country’s place in the cultural landscape. 
“Broadway Dreams is well named because it’s not about a promise of a career.  It’s about the opportunity to train with people who can help you go after that career.”

RUSSIA

– Moscow
– St. Petersburg

Beginning in 2016 and for the first time in the history of United States-Russian relations, the United States Department of State and United States Embassy in Russia launched an exclusive annual musical theatre initiative, in association with Broadway Dreams and producer Dmitry Bogachev, CEO of Moscow Broadway and founder of the Russian division of Stage Entertainment.  Each year, a team of the finest professionals from the New York stage led by Broadway Dreams travel to Russia to empower professional Russian performers from Moscow and St. Petersburg with training in acting, vocal performance, and dance. The program culminates in a main-stage production and private audiences with and performances for official dignitaries.

“Our collaboration with Broadway Dreams helps experienced artists raise their skills to the next level, and for novice actors to move into the profession.”

BRAZIL
