Broadway veteran Billy Porter is featured in this "Day 1" video of the Broadway Dreams Foundation workshop, being held in Philadelphia.

Porter closes the video by discussing why working with Broadway Dreams is meaningful to him, saying, "I love doing Braodway Dreams because it allows me to give back and share all the things that I've learned."

The video also features Spencer Liff, Tony Vincent, and other BDF faculty.

BDF Philadelphia students are receiving training in acting, dance, and vocal performance. They will also perform in a one-night concert that is open to the public, which will be held on August 4 at 3 pm and 8 pm at the Kimmel Center.
