Students will break down their song material with one on one coaching in a class setting. Students will also have the opportunity to be part of a Q&A with Ms. Margherita and the Broadway Workshop team.

In the final section of this workshop, students will take part in a dance/movement class led by CLAY THOMSON who has  appeared on Broadway in Matilda, Newsies and on tour in Wicked and West Side Story.

If possible please have a second song to be used as back up. Songs should be 3- hole punched and in a binder. Accompanist will be provided. Students will not need a photo/resume for this class.

Class is limited to 16 students.
