THE SHOW MUST GO ON!
Created and directed by Sherwin Mackintosh and Carrie Kelsey (pictured), the Shining Stars Performing Arts Academy WILL be back at CAMP SWAMP on June 26- July 2, 2022! Last summer we were able to create an amazing virtual showcase. This summer we are excited to combine live, on-stage performing elements and on-screen camera techniques.
Shining Stars Performing Arts Academy 2022 will offer the best of both worlds! One of our focuses will again be Commercial and On-Camera techniques. Students will be instructed by industry experts on how best to film themselves as well as how to edit videos. This is especially important as all of us enter into more digital and virtual auditions and performances. This will also provide opportunities for those writers and film-makers who prefer to be behind the camera!
AND we will continue live stage performance classes with our three-pronged approach with singing, dancing and acting. This will give our Musical Theater students an opportunity to once again perform live! Our Showcase will feature professionally-captured videos of individual performers, as well as our signature group performances.
As many of you know, Sherwin and Carrie were two of the Producers of the recent revival of the musical, Upside Down. Sherwin was the co-writer (along with Steve Johnson) and Carrie was the Assistant Director and Choreographer. What you may not know is that both Sherwin and Carrie taught at the PK Yonge Performing Arts Center at University of Florida for several years after 17 years of performing and producing productions in New York City. Along with Sherwin and Carrie, we are again assembling a first-class group of teachers and professionals who have made careers performing in the Arts, with film and Broadway credits, while at the same time, keeping God first in their lives. The combination of being excellent in our craft and holding strong to our convictions as disciples continues to be the foundation for the Shining Stars Performing Arts Academy.
Join Us Today and Prepare for the Stage of Life!
Shining Stars will be a great experience for anyone looking to build their confidence, leadership training, and talent development. Studies show that students involved in the Arts score higher on SATs and learn to be more comfortable in social situations. So whether you are just starting out or have been performing since you were born (we've heard the stories!), there is a place here for everyone to grow in a very safe, non-threatening environment. And if you are thinking about trying to make a career in entertainment, there will also be special classes on how to use your talents for God while thriving spiritually in the field of entertainment.
