The program allows students to experience the intensive training of a professional, successful and highly disciplined Broadway Artist and the myriad skills required in collaboration, interrelation, communication and human exploration. The goals are to expand and deepen students understanding and familiarity with all areas of Broadway Theater and to enhance their studies in human behavior, culture, intention and expression.  Through challenging music, dance, acting and, most importantly, the unique art form of “putting it all together”, taught by the best professionals on Broadway, StudentsLive prepares students to be highly competitive in whatever career they choose to pursue as well as prepare for the best universities and career opportunities possible.

At the end of the course the students perform a live, original “Broadway Show” for a select and invited audience of top-tier Broadway Professionals. In this intensive, students will also be exposed to the invaluable and often inaccessible resources New York Broadway Theater has to offer.

As part of the Program, participants experience Broadway like never before – by working with top Broadway Professionals as they rehearse and perform a specially composed medley of 40 quintessential Broadway songs that span the entire history of musical theater in the United States.  For one, two or three weeks (there are 3, 5, 10 and 18-day programs), participants work every day with a Director,  Broadway Choreographer, Dance Captain, and Musical Director, and meet with specially invited Broadway Guest Professionals who can illuminate students’ understanding of their particular field of expertise in musical theater.

AMY WEINSTEIN

 CEO AND FOUNDER OF STUDENTSLIVE A GLOBAL ARTS EDUCATION ORGANIZATION

 FOUNDER AND ARTISTIC DIRECTOR OF PASSPORT TO BROADWAY INTERNATIONAL

 Amy Weinstein is the CEO and Founder of StudentsLive, A Global Broadway Education Company for the past 18 years and more recently Artistic Director of Sister Company, Passport to Broadway International. Starting literally with just an idea, StudentsLive grew into one of the world’s most significant theater education programs attracting over 250,000 students worldwide with an annual budget of over 1 million dollars and annual international programs engaging organizations from Brazil, South Korea, Italy, China, Guatemala, Indonesia and Japan. After 18 years of growth, it now boasts partnerships with virtually every single hit Broadway show, endorsements from America’s political, cultural, and artistic leaders, alliances with foreign governments and arts education programs, and a proven track record of financial sustainability. Most importantly, tens of thousands of young people and lifelong learners across the globe have been touched by StudentsLive programs – the ultimate measure of success.

Amy Weinstein has been developing, creating, marketing and producing education programs in partnership with some of the finest Broadway Artists, Producers and Creative Teams since 1990. A leader and pioneer in curriculum based standards and exciting and educational custom designed workshops and presentations, she has been recognized as a cutting edge and highly effective creative presence within public and private schools, colleges, universities and organizations nationwide. She has been dedicated to arts and education for the past thirty years. Graduating from New York University with a degree in theater and communication, she began her work early on as a theatrical talent agent and casting director in Hollywood. Due to her expertise and comprehensive focus on education, she was asked to teach acting to at-risk teenagers with Jean Stapleton’s foundation, The Academy of Performing and Visual Arts in East Los Angeles.

Out of her work with these artistically talented and gifted young people, she co-wrote with Annette Cardona (Cha Cha in the movie Grease) and directed a musical play entitled Second Chance, which toured as an Equity TYA contract to over 350,000 students in California and surrounding states. National mental health experts recognized the play as an inspirational arts model for crisis intervention, and interpersonal issues amongst teenagers at risk throughout the country. WGBH/PBS was so impressed with the play they commissioned it for adaptation to teleplay in 1996. Ms. Weinstein served as a producer on the project. She also traveled and spoke internationally to world class competitive athletes, teaching presentation and interpretative performance skills. Ms. Weinstein continued her work in the New York area as an improvisation and acting teacher at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy as a senior member of the faculty, directing graduation showcases for international musical theater students from around the world. She was soon after hired as education director by Tony Randall‘s Not-For-Profit Broadway Tony Award Nominated National Actors Theater.

With NAT for eight years, Ms. Weinstein created study guides, workshops and led professional development training for Applied Theater majors in conjunction with NAT’s Broadway shows for 46 New York City Public Schools specially selected to receive, free of cost, NAT’s education programs and to experience the classics on Broadway. Recent shows included, The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui, starring Al Pacino Judgment at Nuremberg, starring Maximillian Schell, The Gin Game, starring Charles Durning and Julie Harris and Night Must Fall starring Matthew Broderick. She hired, trained and developed programs with and for experienced teaching artists and professionals in the theater, education and film communities and built bridges for students in underserved New York to experience the comprehensive, interdisciplinary, social, cultural, political and personal values of theater.

She currently works full time overseeing both StudentsLive and Passport to Broadway wearing multiple hats as Producer, Director and CEO travelling internationally with her creative teams to ensure the workshops reflect the finest standards and vision from the top down. She also continues writing, directing and producing both On and Off-Broadway and created StudentsLive Inc. for the sole purpose of facilitating the large demand for her programs and services. Her talented staff consists of two or three program directors, college and high school interns, and a large cadre of volunteers in the theater and education communities. She has designed implemented, supervised and trained teachers and artists in educational programming curricula worldwide from theatre and dance academy students in Rimini Italy, to elementary school theatre curricula programs in the Bronx, New York. to MFA students and teachers here in New York and San Diego to International Broadway Theater Summer Camps for international students and families both outbound and inbound traveling to the United States. Her programs have gained national print and electronic press attention including Court TV, CNN, The New York Times, ABC, NBC, CBS and various local media outlets for their educational, entertaining and artistic value. Her excellent relationship with leaders in the cultural, social and political communities has helped tie the Broadway community into new audiences, greater revenue and inspire a greater understanding of the importance of theater arts in young people’s lives.

Amy also offers private audition coaching and she has taught notable professionals including Jesse Tyler Ferguson from TV’s “Modern Family”, Christopher Jackson from Broadway’s Lion King, In The Heights and Hamilton and TV’s “Bull”, Lala Karmela a well-known film star in Indonesia and members of the sensational world renowned pop group AKB48 from Japan. She has also collaborated with top Broadway, theater, film and television professionals such as Al Pacino, Charles Durning, Billy Crudup, Reba McIntyre and more. Amy’s education work has been recognized by social and political leaders such as the Mayors of New York and Los Angeles, Former President Bill Clinton and Former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, and highly reputable top social and civic leaders throughout the world. Amy has also worked closely with top Broadway Producers of Broadway Hits such as Rent, Chicago, Annie Get Your Gun, Peter Pan, Matilda and Wicked.
