THE BRONX -

Children from homeless shelters ended a summer program Tuesday by singing and dancing with Broadway stars.

The organization Win, the largest provider of shelter to women and children in need in New York City, collaborated with another group called Broadway Babies to host a summerlong program.

The children worked with a host of stars from Broadway plays and musicals, including "Hamilton," "Groundhog Day" and "Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812."

The stars taught kids different songs, dances and raps over the past few months, with the program culminating in a final performance in which students performed their original work with the pros.

The kids will show off their moves again in a talent show this September.

Win says it has served 12,000 homeless people, including more than 6,000 children, with a variety of programs within the past year.
