INSIDE HAMILTON is a performance-based workshop featuring music and original choreography from the smash hit Broadway show HAMILTON. It is the only workshop currently offered in North America that features original touring company members and directors (Musical Director Julian Reeve; original resident Choreographer Derek Mitchell, of the First National Tour), combining their unique knowledge of the show with years of performing experience to deliver a workshop unlike any other.

INSIDE HAMILTON is more than just learning songs and routines from the show – this workshop introduces participants to the finer details of styles that influenced the show's choreographer Andy Blankenbuler and focuses on the specific requirements that all performers need in order to be cast in the show. Musically, performers are introduced to the many vocal demands of Hamilton, including the detailed process of how swings operate musically within the show. Students will also learn about developing as a professional performer including audition technique, casting, and career development.
