Triple Threat Performer Intensive Recap

Last week, young aspiring performers from the area joined us in our Triple Threat Performer Intensive. Students were able to study with seasoned Broadway professionals and teaching artists all week long to find their own creative voices. We’re proud to announce that 25 of the students were able to participate due to scholarships provided by First County Bank, Center Stage Dance Studio, and through the Robert N. Rich family.

"Everyone is so talented here to begin with and in the beginning it kind of made me feel overwhelmed, because I was like, Oh my gosh, everyone's so good at all this stuff.  But they taught me everything they know, or a lot of it, and that's helped me," - Greenwich High School student Willa Doss, via It's Relevant Stamford
