Jacqui Robinson

Founder/Owner

Meet Jacqui Robinson, the creative force behind Broadway Bootcamp LLC. Since its inception in 2010, Jacqui has been on a delightful mission of sharing her boundless love for musical theatre with countless students across West Michigan. But her passion extends beyond Broadway Bootcamp – Jacqui is also a dedicated instructor of acting, dance, and yoga classes for children from preschool to 12th grade.

With a BA in Elementary Education and a keen focus on English, as well as a minor in Theatre from Grand Valley State University, Jacqui brings a perfect blend of educational prowess and theatrical expertise to her teaching endeavors. Her journey didn't stop there. After graduating, Jacqui found herself as a Cast Member at the renowned Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida, captivating audiences with her performances. Her hunger for knowledge and international experiences then led her to the United Kingdom, where she pursued and earned her MA in Theatre for Young Audiences from Bath Spa University. It was during this transformative time that Jacqui conceived the captivating concept of Broadway Babies, which became the highlight of her MA thesis.

As fate would have it, Jacqui's journey in life also included becoming a proud mother to her son, Drew, with another little one on the way this summer. These precious milestones have only deepened her dedication to offering Broadway Babies regularly, allowing other children to experience the magic she holds so dear.

When Jacqui isn't lighting up the stage with her infectious enthusiasm, she lends her talents as an adjunct instructor in the Arts and Humanities Department at Muskegon Community College. As if her plate wasn't full enough, Jacqui also serves as the Director of Theater Arts for Muskegon Catholic Central, nurturing young talent and guiding them toward their artistic dreams.

Jacqui's unwavering commitment and remarkable contributions have earned her the distinction of being a member of The Future 15, a prestigious award program by the Muskegon Lakeshore Chamber of Commerce. This recognition celebrates her outstanding achievements and her exceptional service to both her workplace and the community at large.

Broadway Bootcamp LLC is incredibly fortunate to have Jacqui Robinson at its helm, inspiring and empowering young performers to find their voices on and off the stage. Her educational background, unwavering passion, and dedication to artistic growth make her a true leader in the industry and a beacon of inspiration to all who have the pleasure of working with her.
