Don’t miss out on the most exciting and educational performing arts workshop in the country! The Young Americans Performing Arts Workshop is making a stop in your hometown to work with you for 3 days!
What can you look forward to? Each Young Americans Performing Arts Workshop brings an incredible combination of energy, teamwork, and confidence, using music as the tool. The college-aged cast of specially-trained performers/teachers provides a safe and exciting atmosphere for you to learn, create, and grow! This comprehensive performing workshop includes everything from vocal and dance training to full stage performance.
After two days of intensive performance instruction, it’s show time! This show is jam-packed with choral, musical theatre, rock n’ roll, and more! The Young Americans cast of 25 perform the first act as a gift for your community. During the second act, you and your friends will be the stars! You will be the one singing, dancing, and performing the show and solos you’ve learned in just three days with support from The Young Americans.

Pick-up, Drop-off, or Is your student in a conflicting activity? We realize families may need to drop-off students late, pick-up early, or have students participating in a conflicting activity. Please let a cast member know about your situation so that they can teach your student what they’ve missed during any portion of the event.
Meals: Participants should bring a packed lunch for every meal break.
Show Tickets: Tickets will be sold for the final show at the end of the workshop day & 30 minutes prior to the performance.

WE NEED HOST FAMILY VOLUNTEERS: We need your help to host two or more Young Americans during this event. Be one of 3,000 families across the world opening their doors to this amazing experience! The Young Americans are coming to our community. As a non-profit organization, they rely on families, like ours, to help house their touring group as they do their community outreach. Please consider opening your home for two or more cast members. Host families have helped house over 3,000 Young Americans in 25 countries. It’s really one of the most rewarding aspects for the workshop participants and their families. You can volunteer during the registration process.
