Am I required to audition/apply for a WERK WITH BWAY intensive?

Yes! WERK WITH BWAY is by-audition only program. To audition/apply, click "APPLY" on your intensive of interest or scroll to the bottom of the intensive's landing page. You'll need to submit some basic information, your headshot/resume, and a short singing audition video of a musical theatre selection (16-32 bars is great). Cell phone recordings are more than acceptable!

I've submitted my application! When will I receive a reply?

Applications receive a reply within 2-7 business days by email. Admission is rolling so the sooner you apply, the higher your chances of securing a spot to the intensive.

What are the hours of the intensive? Where are they located?

The average day of an intensive runs from 10am-6pm with a one-hour lunch break each day. Intensives are currently held at Sunlight Studios in NYC (321 W 44th St Suite #202, New York, NY 10036).

What age are the intensives geared towards?

Our intensives are primarily geared towards teenagers and young adults, however, we've trained students younger than 13 years old and over 60 years old! Students at our program are separated into smaller groups to guarantee you'll be working with people of similar age and experience.

What's the cancellation policy? Is my tuition transferrable?

At this time, we do not currently offer refunds on tuition deposits. The good news is that your tuition credit is 100% transferrable towards another intensive should you no longer be able to attend for any reason.

Do you offer payment plans or financial aid?

We offer the option of setting up a payment plan to all students who prefer paying the tuition over mutliple installments. This allows students to place a smaller deposit towards their tuition to reserve a spot. We just require that tuition is paid in full by the start of the intensive. More information about setting up a payment plan will be found in your acceptance email. We also offer a limited number of partial scholarships to students who qualify. If this is something that you would need to attend the intensive, please request information on how to apply upon receiving your acceptance email. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to offer a partial scholarship.

Is housing included in the cost of tuition?

Tuition covers the entirety of the classes included in the intensive. It does not cover housing, however, we are able to provide recommendations for discounted hotel accomodations.
