When you are ready to take your dance training to the next level, join us at our commercial dance summer intensive. Designed for commercial dancers ages 11 and up in intermediate to advanced levels, this summer intensive provides a deep dive into dance, acting, or film technique as they prepare you for a career as a professional artist. The dance programs are designed to address the individual technical and artistic needs of intermediate and advanced/pre-professional students.
Our 2019 Summer Intensive includes special guest instructors such as Duncan Cooper, Rasta Thomas, Christopher Broughton, 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.

Skyra’s Commercial Dance Summer Intensive is limited to 50 dancers ages 11+ and will be broken into two levels (intermediate and advanced). Current Skyra students placed in level 2B, 3 or 4 are automatically accepted. To be considered for our commercial dance summer intensive program you will need to attend a live audition or submit an audition video. For those dancers who are ages 3-11, please see our year-round schedule for class options.

The Film Projects
We have an exciting opportunity for students interested in gaining a real-world professional film performance experience. Skyra Studios will partner with Skyra Entertainment to create 2 short film projects that students will be a part of. 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 interested students to gain real industry experience. These 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 and still wants to experience the film production side, they can join us behind the scenes. They can learn about producing, writing and other departments on a film set.
If you are unable to attend a live audition, you may request a personal placement appointment by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or submit a video audition.
