Summer Acting Intensive

The Skyra Summer Acting Intensives will immerse students in a hands-on acting program that will teach them the dos and don’ts of auditioning, scene study, character development, improvisation, and what it’s like to be in stage productions and on a film set. Our program offers high-quality training from top industry professionals and an opportunity for performers to be a part of something unique: a professional short film production that you can share with agents, casting directors, friends & family.

Whether you are an aspiring actor in stage or film or simply looking to explore the craft, Skyra Studios summer intensive offers a safe environment where you can learn from seasoned professional actors and directors.  The intensive will touch on core acting techniques such as Meisner, Stanislavski, Strasberg, Stella Adler and more. Through improvisation, script analysis and the study of monologue materials, students are given the tools necessary to create a believable performance. Every child will learn the fundamentals in breathing, posture, articulation and how to create characters through improvisation and movement. Students will also be introduced to all aspects of film and television auditions. The actors will learn the dos and don’ts of commercial auditioning while exploring the physical adjustments necessary for the camera. Whether your child dreams of being on Broadway or on the silver screen, our goal is to have every student leave with the skills they need to succeed.

The Film Projects

Skyra Studios will team up with Skyra Entertainment to create 2 film projects that will be used as proof of concepts for full feature films and sent out to buyers in both the US and Canada. Each project will include dance scenes for those dancers interested in learning how to perform for the camera. Award-winning producers Scott and Mary Poiley, have developed the summer program for students to gain real industry experience. The students will be quickly immersed in a hands-on program that will teach them the do’s and don’ts of auditioning, scene study, character development and what it’s like to be on a real film set. The summer program offers opportunities for all interests. If your child is not interested in being in front of the camera, they can join us behind the scenes. They can learn about producing, writing and all the other departments on a film set.
