ABOUT BROADWAY BEES
Broadway Bees delivers a thrilling, immersive experience in the magical world of Broadway Musicals. Children participate in activities built around specific age-appropriate musicals, involving all aspects of a theatrical production, including singing, dancing, acting, and set and costume design. Through movement, kids improve their flexibility and coordination; through acting and singing, they focus on and increase their self-confidence, peer interaction, imagination and ear training; and arts and crafts activities are used to build props and accessories related to specific musicals. Broadway Bees' students do this all while being fully immersed in popular Broadway musicals, sure to keep them active and engaged!
