A nonprofit organization that encourages high school and college students to explore their love of the performing arts, the Broadway Theatre Project holds an annual three-week class in Tampa, Florida, during which students are taught about dance, voice, and acting. Classes are instructed by experienced performance artists who are currently involved in their fields. Here are representatives of each of the three faculties:
Jennifer Archibald is on the dance faculty and is the Founder and Artistic Director of the Arch Dance Company. She has performed at many of the country’s most prestigious venues, including the Lincoln Theatre and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
Mana Allen is a member of the voice faculty with the Broadway Theatre Project and also sits on the faculty for the CAP21 Musical Theatre Conservatory. She has appeared on Broadway in the original casts of Merrily We Roll Along and Smile, and has coached many students who went on to appear in some of Broadways’ finest shows.
Marc Powers serves on the acting faculty, and is the Director of the School of Theatre and Dance and the British International Theatre Program at the University of South Florida. He specializes in performance technique and presentational styles.
