Workshop Overview: The Young Americans believes in the power of music and the impact it has throughout the world. Its specially-trained international performers use music as the tool to help students grow within the performing arts and develop important skills in leadership and teamwork. The Young Americans brings 40 college-age performers from around the world to host a Performing Arts Workshop in your community. The workshop takes place over three days – two days of fast-paced rehearsal leading into an unrivaled, fully-staged show. Our unique teaching style provides an encouraging environment for students to push past insecurities and achieve the seemingly impossible. Our team comes from a diverse background which allows us to reach every student to reveal their best qualities as people and as performers. As a result, our workshops energize and strengthen existing music programs while uniting the community. To experience all the program has to offer, host a Young American in your home during the 3-Day Workshop.

The Young Americans Program aims to train young people in performance (no prior experience necessary!), strengthen character and develop self-esteem, self-worth and self-discipline.

The workshop builds skills in:

  • Voice
  • Choral Singing
  • Dance
  • Acting/Improvisation
  • Musical Theatre
  • Performance Techniques
  • Audition Techniques
  • Sound Techniques
