Our mission is to transform the American stage and screen to reflect the diversity of America. We train young artists from all income levels and all ethnic backgrounds in a world-class conservatory--led by professionals from the Broadway, television, and film industries--in order to shape a new generation of artists, leaders, and advocates who are impassioned to create inclusive work for all.
Broadway for All (BFA) was born out of a Presidential Public Service Fellowship in 2012 sponsored by Harvard University’s Office of the President. Today the program is a NYC-based 501(c)(3) not-for-profit that offers tuition-free, world-class conservatory training to middle and high school students from across the country.
With continued cuts in arts education at our schools and the cost of private theatre training out of reach for many, Broadway for All was created to provide young artists the opportunity to practice and enhance their talents, regardless of their ethnic or economic backgrounds.
Our students’ accomplishments include:
● Broadway and national touring debuts in The King and I, Matilda, and Finding Neverland
● Filming the pilot of Showtime’s Billions
● College acceptance to Berklee College of Music (for Voice)
● College acceptance to SUNY Purchase (for Dramatic Writing)
● Regional theatre debut in Elf at the Papermill Playhouse
● Invitations to audition for top NYC casting directors and networks
● Admission into the Tribeca Film Institute
● Work with Pulse Music and Producer Cannon Map
