The Broadway Connection Experience
“Elizabeth and Callan were exceptional instructors and worked so well with the students. It was some of my students first time seeing a show. I'll always remember their smiling faces and how excited they were getting autographs and to take pictures at the stage door.” - Y. Thomas

Even was a terrific influence on my students!  Thank you for providing the quality of instruction and upbeat educators on a regular basis.  I KNOW what I’m going to be giving my parents & students when I do business with Broadway Connection!
