As a creative outlet, Denise provides acting opportunities for her students and actors throughout the region by directing and producing her own summer productions as well as teaching week-long intensive workshops. 

Work with Denise Simon Acting & Coaching three different ways this summer! 


Summer Intensives for Theatre & Film

Bright Lights of Broadway

Dates: JULY 22-26

One of Denise’s most popular programs is the week-long Summer Intensive class. Kids are taught the performance Triple Threat: acting, voice & dance. Each program features master teachers with expertise in one of these area. Students also perform in a  cabaret setting and work with a professional casting director during the week.

The highlight of this program is a day on Broadway. Not only do the students see a Broadway show (ticket included with tuition), but they are introduced to the cast. One cast member then teaches a master class on dance!

The week includes all of the following and more:

  • Vocal and song interpretation for musical theatre
  • Audition technique
  • Improvisation training
  • Master dance class with Broadway cast member
  • Audition workshop with top Broadway casting director
  • A Broadway show with a backstage tour and introductions to the cast
  • Special industry guests throughout the week
  • On-stage performance opportunity in NYC for students’ friends and family
  • Industry pros in the audience of the students’ NYC performance

It is an exciting and memorable week for all involved!
