Broadway Training Center of Westchester, a 2008 Best of Westchester winner, is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to provide kids and adults in the Westchester area with Broadway-oriented performing arts training that focuses on the joy of accomplishment, the development of individual and ensemble skills, and the enrichment of personal expression and growth through classroom and performance work. Offers classes, workshops, and a summer camp.
You know those so-called performing arts schools that are staffed by starry-eyed Broadway hopefuls and performers who never quite made it? The kind that pander to stage moms and teens who just want to do something--anything--to keep from being bored? Well this isn't one of 'em! The Broadway Training Center of Westchester is not here to gouge parents or take advantage of children's hopes and dreams. It's not here to tell you what you wanna hear, then take the money and run. This nonprofit center is about building on hopes and dreams and it's not just for performing-arts wannabes--it's for will-bes and must-bes, too. Kids ages three to 18 can take weekly classes--or daily ones--in a diverse array of performing arts, e.g., hip hop, ballet, juggling, acting musical theater, and improv. So whether you've got a mini Andrea McArdle with greasepaint already running through her veins or a burgeoning Beyonce who needs to polish up her dance moves, BTC is sure to have a class that can help her on her way to success.
