    Testimonials

    Claire Engelhaupt, Broadway
    Bound 2014 and 2016

    "Broadway-Bound opened my eyes to an entire new college experience and career opportunity available at Oklahoma City University’s Ann Lacy School of American Dance and Entertainment. It stands out from any other summer program I had previously attended because the faculty and staff demonstrated great professionalism, all while exemplifying their passion for dance and your success both on and offstage. I gained so much knowledge I went twice!

    The summer program led me to becoming a student at the Ann Lacy School of American Dance and Entertainment and prepared me for what college life is like here as a dance major. I made lasting friendships with dancers who have become some of my closest friends and current classmates now at OCU. Broadway-Bound is a fantastic program for any dancer looking to further their ability and wishing to spend the summer dancing with like-minded, passionate people."


    Tristan Whitley,
    Broadway-Bound 2016

    "I am a freshman Dance Universal major at OCU! I attended Broadway-Bound the summer before my senior year of high school and I am so glad that I did. This camp made my college decision a no-brainer. I had such a great experience working with the faculty and staff at OCU during the camp, and loved getting to live on campus and use all of the facilities. Believe me when I say that attending Broadway-Bound is like living a day in the life of an OCU dance major! Between having RAs that are upperclassmen at OCU, and meeting so many friends that I now go to school with (including my roommate), I felt so comfortable and confident auditioning and later attending OCU. If you are searching for a college program, or even just looking for a fun summer intensive, I would 100% recommend Broadway Bound. I have made lifetime connections and gained so much knowledge about both the school and the dance world that I am forever grateful for!"
