Alexis Carra and Chryssie Whitehead are the co-founders & directors of Broadway Arts Community since 2017. They are both Broadway and TV veterans and long time best friends who met performing on the 1st National Tour of Fosse in 2001. They have experienced it all working for 20 years on Broadway, film, and television and share a passion for teaching and passing on what they've learned. Alexis graduated from Yale University, Cum Laude, with a BA in Theatre Studies, and Chryssie graduated with a BA in Performing Arts from St. Mary's College and earned a certificate in Musical Theatre Concentration at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York. Throughout their performing careers they have taught dance, directed, choreographed, coached musical theatre performance, acting for the camera, and monologues for auditions across the globe. They have been on faculty at AMDA College and Conservatory for the Performing Arts in New York and Los Angeles. They practice the tools they teach which led them to create this community, a place for emerging artists to gain not only top notch training, but also a family. Knowing an artist has a community to lean on is essential in making it in this industry. We are Broadway Arts Community.
