One of our Internship events was a trip to the Disneyland Resort where most of the day was spent watching union stage shows and parades. The interns had the chance to speak to choreographers that currently work at the Disneyland Resort, for an insight of what to expect in the entertainment industry.
A few of our interns where chosen to participate and work the first AS Intense which was held at Tustin Dance Center in Tustin, California. Our interns had the chance to participate in this two day event where they took Pilates, Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary and Jazz-Funk with amazing instructors. This event was free to our interns. (Picture above includes Tustin Dance Center students Sakima Productions Interns and instructor Alex Little.)
At the end of the internship the interns received their own personalized 5-day AS Intense free of charge. This AS Intense included classes in Ballet, Pilates, Modern, Jazz, Musical Theater, Hip-Hop, Progressions, Contemporary, Improvisation, Acting, seminars in Work Ethics & Training, Preparing for Auditions, Injury Prevention, and a Mock Vocal & Dance Audition. The interns had the chance to work with current working choreographers, dancers, actors, singers and athletic trainers.
