“The perfect pace and mix of technique and fun. The choreo and style of music was amazing and so fun” –  Broadway Buffet Participant


“I would take this class every day for the rest of my life if I could. Please make this an extended course! Don is phenomenal!!!” – Acting Fun-damentals Participant
“This class is amazing, and I love the format. We were talking last night about how we learn so much just by listening to each of the other singers sing and the master class format really works. This is definitely a class that I would happily take over and over again.” – Singing Solo Participant
“The class vibe is great because it’s intimate and you truly learn so much from one another. It’s really fun to listen to everyone sing too! :)” – Singing Solo Participant


“I’m always intimidated by Broadway dance classes, but in the AWT fashion, I felt safe and comfortable. Thanks!” – Broadway Buffet Participant
