Many camps are an opportunity to discover the arts. This intensive is for young performers who have already discovered their love for performing and want to take it to the next level.
Performing Arts Louisville’s in-person Summer Intensives will follow all CDC guidelines and offer campers an incomparable experience! Our 1 week or 2-week option offers an intense week of training, a live showcase at the end of the session, tailored audition pieces, and a live performance opening prior to a professional production at Iroquois Amphitheater!
Grow as a performer, artist, and professional — all in one week!
Camps are for students entering Grade 3 through those entering College as of September 2022. This intensive really digs deep into the disciplines of singing, acting, and dancing. Students will grow in each of these disciplines by improving skills, understanding their strengths, how to market those strengths, collaborating with other students, and by performing in a professional setting.
Industry experts participate in an evaluation process so each student will receive individualized advice and encouragement from the pros! Last year's panel included Broadway professionals Nikki Renée Daniels, Leslie Rodriguez Kritzer, Michael Potts, and Gerry McIntyre.
Students that complete the week's training will perform a full-scale song and dance number at Iroquois Amphitheater prior to ACT Louisville Productions' professional production in July, 2022.

Are you ready to work? Our instructors have a proven track of elevating the skills and talent of singers, actors, and dancers across the United States—from prestigious arts training programs, performing arts college admission, to booking role on stage, film, and television.
At the end of each week, you will perform in front of our professional panel to get real-time feedback from some of the best in the business! 2022 Panel Coming Soon.
We start with a placement screening so we can identify where you are developmentally. These screenings allow our staff to select audition pieces for you BEFORE you arrive! Students are grouped based on age and ability.
PRO TIPS: turn your phone to landscape or horizontal to film. Make sure the background is free of clutter — a plain wall works great. Shoot the song and monologue from the shoulders up. Do not zoom in. Make sure you have lots of light so we can see the color of your eyes. Make sure the area is quiet.
Send us a video and include the following:
A 1-1:30 minute contemporary monologue from a play, or a clipping from a young adult novel. Make sure your piece is age appropriate. Show us your range!
32 bars of an upbeat tempo contemporary musical or pop song. A single instrument karaoke track works well or a cappella.
:30 seconds to 1:00 of movement or dancing— freestyle to an upbeat tempo song. If you are a dancer, show us what you've got. If you're not, show us how you move to the music.
A 1 to 2 minute personality clip. Tell us who you are. Do you have any relevant experience? What goals do you have for training? What areas do you need help with the most?
