Rosie's Broadway Kids (RBKids) is a non-profit arts education organization dedicated to enriching the lives of children through the arts. Using professional teaching artists, RBKids offers classes in dance, music and drama and a professional theater experience for children who might otherwise
not have the opportunity. Its goal is to inspire excellence, motivate learning, uplift the human spirit, and to instill a lifelong appreciation for the arts. 

Founded in 2003, Rosie's Broadway Kids began with a pilot project at one school with 30 students and has expanded to serving almost 2000 low-income New York City public school students annually with its in-school and after-school musical theater programs.
