Each Young Americans Signature Workshop and Performance brings an incredible combination of energy, teamwork and confidence using music as a tool. The workshop included vocal, dance and full stage performance elements.

The college-aged cast of trained performers and teachers provide a safe and exciting atmosphere to learn, create and grow. Though called the Young Americans, the group is a diverse group of students from all over the world.
