Directors Stafford Arima, Dan Knechtges, and Matt Lenz have joined the creative team of Express Yourself: The 2012 Summer Performing Arts Intensive Tour, a series of week-long summer intensives sponsored by the Broadway Dreams Foundation.

The national performing arts training program will present these intensives at the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta, the Holland Performing Arts Center in Omaha, and the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia. Attendees receive training in acting, dance, and vocal performance, with the opportunity to perform in a one-night concert that is open to the public.

Arima will direct the Atlanta engagement, with Knechtges directing in Philadelphia, and Lenz in Omaha.

The faculty roster for the summer will include Nicholas Rodriguez, Tituss Burgess, Craig D'Amico, Quentin Earl Darrington, Traci Jai Edwards, Jarrod Emick, Eden Espinosa, Meg Gillentine, Deidre Goodwin, Tyler Hanes, Nikki Snelson, casting directors Craig Burns and Rachel Hoffman, along with BDF's Executive Director Annette Tanner and Creative Producer Paul Canaan.
