Betsy Wolfe Talks BroadwayEvolved's Third Year & 2020 Faculty Sneak Peek
After two groundbreaking years, BroadwayEvolved returns in 2020 with three Summer Intensives. After just announcing the 2020 faculty sneak peek, Betsy Wolfe, Co-Founder, reflects on the evolution of the program and what excites her most about year three.
"BroadwayEvolved began three years ago as a passionate attempt to connect aspiring performers and educators from all walks of life to the very artists who inspire them. Not long after we finished the first BroadwayEvolved 2018 Summer Intensive, the life changing student, parent, and educator testimonials came pouring in. I was overwhelmed by how impactful and lasting the week was for all participants, myself included. It went far beyond my wildest dreams. I firmly believe the success of the graduating students and educators is a direct reflection of the way in which our all star, incredible faculty arrive and approach teaching with BroadwayEvolved. Here we are in our third summer and we've had students from 35 states, 13 countries and we're once again doubling scholarships for 2020, all in the hopes of shaping the next generation of industry change makers in an even more meaningful way."
SUMMER INTENSIVES (7/20-7/23, 7/27-7/30, 8/3-8/6) bring together the highest level of talented faculty to propel student and educator success. Faculty arrive with accomplished resumes, experience teaching, and a commitment to mentoring. 2020 Program Faculty includes: Alexandra Silber, Ali Stroker, Ashley Park, Betsy Wolfe, Brandon Uranowitz, Christy Altomare, Isaac Powell, James Monroe Iglehart, Jenn Colella, Jeremy Jordan, Jessica Vosk, Karen Olivo, Megan Hilty, and Michael Urie. Plus more to be announced. BroadwayEvolved knows that when both students and educators are trained in complementary models, the potential is limitless.
