Don't miss out on the most exciting and educational performing arts workshop in the country! The Young Americans Signature Workshop and Performance is making a stop in LAFAYETTE, TENNESSEE to work with you for 3 days!
What can you look forward to? Each Young Americans Signature Workshop and Performance brings an incredible combination of energy, teamwork, and confidence, using music as the tool. The college-aged cast of specially-trained performers/ teachers provides a safe and exciting atmosphere for you to learn, create, and grow! This comprehensive performing workshop includes everything from vocal and dance to full stage performance.
After three days of intensive performance instruction, it's show time! This show is jam-packed with choral, musical theatre, rock n' roll, and more! The Young Americans cast of 45 perform the first act and support you as you take the stage for the second act. You will be the one singing, dancing, and performing the show and solos you've learned in just three days. For tour and workshop videos, go to YAlive.com .

Tickets will be sold for the final show at the end of the workshop day & 30 minutes prior to the performance. We want to stress the importance of purchasing tickets before the show day to ensure you have a seat. As a reminder, your student(s) that are in the workshop do not need a ticket.
WE NEED HOST FAMILY VOLUNTEERS: We need your help to host two or more Young Americans during this event. Be one of 3,000 families across the world opening their doors to this amazing experience! The Young Americans are coming to our community. As a non-profit organization, they rely on families, like ours, to help house their touring group as they do their community outreach. Please consider opening your home for two or more cast members. Host families have helped house over 3,000 Young Americans in 25 countries. It's really one of the most rewarding aspects for the workshop participants and their families. You can volunteer during the registration process.
