A program focused on the process of the work taught by Broadway, TV and film professionals.

Summer Performing Arts Intensive (SPAI) is an intensive program for B.F.A. in Acting and Musical Theatre students who have completed the first year of their three-year/two-summer theatre program at Stephens. During the program, students focus on the process of the work by learning new techniques from instructors who are highly respected in their fields.

Students take classes in Lessac Voice & Bodywork, Movement for the Actor, The Michael Chekhov Acting Technique, and Self-Tape/On-Camera Techniques. 

Our students are introduced to new techniques and new instructors who are highly respected in their fields. Through this rigorous training, students gain confidence and depth in their work.”
