Summer camps for 2021 are currently being planned for both in-person and online options. However, due to safety concerns surrounding COVID-19, NYFA will be unable to offer housing for in-person teen camps. Families will need to secure their own housing for campers and provide any necessary off-campus supervision, if traveling to a NYFA teen summer camp from another city, state or country. All after-school and weekend camps will be conducted online, until further notice. To view all camps and workshops offered, please click here.

3-Week Musical Theatre Camp: Classes

Courses from the following list allow students to explore the integral skills required for success in the field, to understand professional ethics, and to prepare themselves for the joys and demands of musical theatre.

  • Acting Technique: Students are introduced to the tools necessary for strong storytelling including given circumstances, objectives, obstacles, tactics and actions through the use of theatre games, exercises and practical performance analysis. Our Broadway-level faculty provides a fun, safe, and nurturing environment to explore and apply these tools.
  • Ballet, Jazz & Theatre Dance: Working with Broadway’s top talent, students of every level are exposed to fundamental dance techniques including jazz and theatre dance, and ballet. Our programs place a strong emphasis on core strengthening, flexibility, and story through movement. Using material from musical theatre, students learn an ensemble piece musically and then proceed into a fully choreographed dance sequence for final presentation.
  • Voice Studio Lab: This course will give students an understanding of the voice and its physical components as applied to musical theatre. Students work on fundamentals of healthy singing: breath support, articulation, relaxation techniques, alignment and proper construction/placement.
  • Performance Lab: Students are immersed in the works of individual composers and lyricists. Class is a survey of the works and styles of major musical theatre artists including: Stephen Sondheim, Andrew Lloyd Weber, Jerry Herman, Cy Coleman, Cole Porter, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Bock & Harnick, Lerner & Loewe, Ahrens & Flaherty, Maury Yeston, Kander & Ebb, and Leonard Bernstein. This lab is designed to workshop musical scenes or group projects for performance at the end of the session. Work becomes more complex over the course of the session and requires that students take on both leading and ensemble roles in performance.
  • Final Presentation: The three weeks culminates with an Open Class Presentation where all students will have the opportunity to present  work generated throughout the course.
