The Professional Conservatory of Musical Theatre at New York Film Academy (PCMT at NYFA) released Inhale/Exhale, a dance video starring PCMT alum CorBen Williams and So You Think You Dance season 10 winner Amy Yakima.

CorBen Williams was raised in North Pole, Alaska, and first attended NYFA’s Musical Theatre Camp for Teens in 2013. He enrolled in the 2-year program at PCMT a year later. Amy Yakima is from Northville, Michigan and was crowned winner of So You Think You Can Dance’s tenth season. In addition to numerous other impressive performances, Yakima has starred on Broadway as Peter Pan in Finding Neverland.

The video showcases the talents of both performers -- one, a student and Broadway hopeful, the other a veteran who’s already achieved stardom -- after a chance encounter in downtown Manhattan. The two dance together in a stunning sequence shot in Battery Park, across the street from NYFA’s New York campus.

It was directed by Chair of Short-term Intensive Programs Jonathan Whittaker, edited by Sean Robinson, and produced by Kristy Cates, the PCMT’s Creative Director. Cates is a Broadway veteran as well, with credits including Wicked (Broadway, First National Tour, Chicago) as Elphaba, Miss Bassett in Finding Neverland (Broadway), and Grandma Josephine in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Broadway).

The PCMT at New York Film Academy offers aspiring musical theatre actors a one-of-a-kind opportunity to develop their skills in singing, dancing, and acting by studying with faculty like Cates who are working professionals. By sharing faculty and resources with other departments at NYFA, the PCMT is able to produce high-quality videos with stellar production values such as Inhale/Exhale.

The video is available on NYFA’s website and we encourage everyone to take a look!
