Summer Dance Intensive

Our 2018 Summer Dance Intensive is a five-week experience designed to address the individual technical and artistic needs of intermediate and advanced/pre-professional students (ages 9+ recommended). Our program will transform your performance by providing high-quality master classes with world-renowned instructors such as Duncan Cooper, Rasta Thomas, Anthony Morigerato, Christopher Broughton, Tony Yazbeck, Rory Freeman and more. Along with our guest instructors, you will receive training from our exemplary Skyra faculty: award-winning choreographers and industry professionals with decades of training and performance experience, boasting connections to top agents, casting directors, directors, producers, and distributors. They are passionate about the arts, believe in educating through positive reinforcement and respect, and together represent a vast knowledge in all aspects of visual and performing arts. Each day builds upon the next and each week brings new master instructors. Our intensive is great for classical, contemporary and commercial dancers.

Dancers will have the option of being a part of something unique: a professional short film production. Those dancers who attend the full day program and choose to be a part of the film project will learn how to shift their performance from stage to screen, learn the language of film to communicate with a director & cinematographer on set, and learn how to manage their energy for a twelve-hour shoot day. Don’t miss your opportunity to be featured in an incredible short film that you can share with agents, casting directors, friends & family. All performers will earn a professional credit on IMDB (Internet Movie Database).

The Week


The Skyra Summer Intensive is designed to promote diversity in dance training that will encourage young dancers to explore and discover their full potential. In addition to our outstanding faculty, we bring master instructors specializing in ballet, contemporary and commercial dance, offering a variety of mediums for young dancers to explore and take advantage of while nourishing and cultivating each student’s unique talents. Our goal is to divide our students into four levels and provide special areas of focus.

During our Master Series, depending on our special master instructors for those weeks, you will also have the choice of focusing your training on specific areas. When registering Dancers choose their area of focus: Ballet, Jazz/Contemporary, or Tap. For example, during our June 4th week we will have amazing Tap Instructors. Tappers will have the choice of taking tap for three hours each day while ballet and contemporary focused dancers will have other choices.

Example schedule:

  • 1.5 Hour Ballet
  • 1.5 Hour Contemporary or Modern
  • 1 Hour Pointe, Tap, or Emotions
  • Lunch
  • 1 Hour Modern, Classical Variations, Progressions, Hip Hop, Afro-Latin Fusion, Jazz, Lyrical, Acrobatic Arts, or Emotions
  • 1 Hour SkyraFit

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. For dancers who are not interested in performing for the camera, they can continue their dance technique training in our technical classes.

Note: We will produce two film shorts this summer. One during Session 1 and another during Session 2. To be included in the Film Shorts you will need to attend the full day program for the last two weeks in June (June 11-22nd) and the two weeks in July (July 9-20th).
