Love! We love Denise! My daughter has thrived under her tutelage for many years. We started her performance journey at 8 with the Summerfords and now at 16, we have engaged  BAC to help us prepare for college auditions!  We have enjoyed seasonal, daily and summer master classes and camps. Thank you!

I can not recommend Broadway Arts Collective enough. This was such an amazing experience for my daughter and I can’t wait for the next one. I saw so much growth and confidence in my daughter from just the one week she attended.
-- T. White, BAC parent

My daughter has been training with Denise Summerford and Broadway Arts Collective for 7 years. In workshops with Broadway professionals, she has received incredible training in singing, dancing and acting. BAC has helped prepare her for college, where she will be studying Vocal Performance and Musical Theater. We are extremely grateful to Denise for providing  such exceptional opportunities to learn, train and grow as an artist. I strongly recommend BAC if you have a child who wants to perform. There is no better training.
-- N.D., BAC parent
