What will it look like when I'm there?:

​Back in May, 2023, I was walking through the busy streets of NYC.. it was spring, the sun was shining, I had a juice in hand & I was on my way to work with my voice teacher, who has a studio on 56th St. 

I had the craziest idea about hosting a retreat for musical theatre performers. Here. In this city. The birthplace & home of musical theatre. "No way" I thought & shook my head, "I can't do that, it's too huge. I've never done it before"

But I couldn't get the idea out of my head..

After my voice lesson, I walked around the corner to a super busy lunch spot - they did these great salads, I'd had one from here a few days before, with avocado & chicken & seeds & lettuce, it was huge - I ended up eating it for my lunch & dinner that day, there was so much of it!

I took my giant salad down to Bryant Park, this cute little grassy area with a dog park & benches & a play ground for children to play in. There was a little cafe too, which always had people sitting outside, reading books, scrolling on their phones or chatting with friends. "What an opportunity" I thought again, ideas pinging around in my super active mind. 

"The chance to work with Broadway creatives, casting directors, maybe even composers.. to fully immerse yourself in your career, you craft & your purpose. To get life changing coaching from me by day & be inspired by Broadway shows by night, as well as experiencing one of the most incredible, vibrant cities in the world."

But how would I do it? 

Well, the more I thought about it, the more I saw it all coming together..

I saw clients flying into NYC, for the opportunity of a lifetime.

Meeting at the studios at 10AM on our first day together. Performers from all over the world, that have one thing in common - they want to become the best at what they do & build the most out-of-this-world career. Where everyone in the industry knows their name & people say "how are they so successful?!"

One life-changing experience after another, working with the absolute best in the industry. You walk out of studio, to grab lunch & head to Central Park, before spending the afternoon working on your songs, levelling up your performance with a top New York director.

You finish your day with a trip to the theatre, watching a sell out Broadway musical & watching what you are working on, in action, right before your eyes.. if they can do it, so can I.

After a standing ovation & clapping so hard your hands are stinging, you head back to your accommodation to sleep & start it all over again tomorrow..

3 days of non-stop level ups, non-stop quantum leaping, non-stop remembering who the f you are & that your musical theatre dreams are 100% meant for you & in your not so distant future.

A 3 Day In Person Event where you will take daily classes with me, Broadway creatives & casting directors, see multiple Broadway shows, join our VIP Leading Lady dinner event & have the time of your life! You will be a whole new person at the end of these 3 days.

Dates: 2-4 June 2024
