Broadway Teaches Kids (BTK), the children’s performing arts virtual camp, is co-founded by mom and finance executive Suzanne Murphy and Tony Award-nominated, world renowned producer/director/choreographer and master teacher Michele Assaf. Presented by Tezoro Productions, BTK will offer a virtual summer camp for students ages five to 12 years old. The curriculum will consist of lessons, games and exercises that will take children on a journey to artistically express themselves.
The virtual summer camp will have an arts focus, and all classes will be taught by talented professional artists who are out of work due to the COVID-19 emergency that has caused the closure of Broadway, theaters, dance companies, film studios, dance studios and more.
Teachers will include guest artist, award-winning principal dancer with the New York City Ballet, Tiler Peck, and others to be announced soon.
BTK will be offered on a weekly basis between July 6 and August 28. The curriculum will include dance and movement classes such as ballet, jazz, tap, lyrical, hip hop, Latin dance, musical theater, conditioning and dance parties. Voice and acting classes will be offered as well. The schedule will also include fun theme days (Marvelous Monday, Wacky Wednesday, Freaky Friday), as well as arts and crafts.
In the virtual world we are living in today, BTK’s aim is to create as close to the experience of a normal summer camp as possible. At the same time, BTK’s mission is to support artists during these unprecedented and challenging times. For this reason, the tuition will go to pay for faculty and staff while any overage will be donated to a charity TBD that supports these artists. Tuition cost is $450 per week, with early bird and multiple child discounts available.
