Emma Noël, Camp Attendee 2019

“Broadway Bound opened my eyes to the world of collegiate dance, and it helped solidify my choice of college programs immediately. The faculty were welcoming and created a fun environment while also giving all students a wealth of knowledge and skills to use in the future. The camp overall created an environment very similar to what I experience now that I go to school at OCU. As campers, we took all the dance courses that I now take daily at school, and I met many of my current peers and even my roommate! Broadway Bound is a must for any dancer considering dance after high school, as it pushes dancers to the next level and opens the door to connecting with other dancers from around the nation!”

Elizabeth Rowe, Camp Attendee 2022

"My Broadway Bound experience was unforgettable. I attended Broadway Bound the summer before my senior year of high school and the summer before my first year at OCU. This intensive made my whole college decision so much easier. I knew the minute it ended that I wanted to attend OCU as a dance major. The teachers were so welcoming and encouraging, while also pushing us to our fullest potential. I grew not only as a dancer but as a person and artist. I made so many connections and friendships through Broadway Bound. The intensive also prepared me for what it would be like attending OCU because I took the exact same classes that I take now as a freshman Dance Universal major. I 100% recommend attending Broadway Bound because not only will you have the best summer dancing at the best school, but you also make lifelong friendships and connections. I am forever grateful for Broadway Bound and how it has shaped me as a person and dancer!"
