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 our 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!
