Broadway Dreams' #ComeTogether Summer Intensive Tour visited New York City this past week with the help of some Broadway heavyweights.

The program offers highly personalized musical-theater training and mentoring through weeklong performing-arts intensive workshops for students of all ages, skill levels, and socioeconomic backgrounds. At the end of the week students perform alongside their mentors for an audience.
