ZBS Presents The Summer YPACs –
(Young Professional Actor Camp)
In June!

JUNE 17 – 21, 9 AM – 4 PM (TV FOCUS)
JUNE 24 – 28, 9 AM – 4 PM (FILM FOCUS)

The Young Professional Actor Camp (YPAC) is a five day intensive (for actors ages 9-18) designed to immerse students in the ZBS WholeSelf Approach. Taught by all the ZBS faculty, the YPAC gives actors the unique opportunity to hone their craft within a fun yet intensive curriculum.

We are happy to announce our special Summer YPAC, which will be focussed on both Television & Film.

For Television, it’ll feature text analysis and on-camera auditioning across the four main television genres (multi-cam comedy, single-cam comedy, procedural drama and serial drama), ensemble building activities, and special YPAC Student Mentors.

For Film, it’ll still feature text analysis across a variety of genres (Sci-Fi, Horror, Comedy, Drama), but the on-camera work will shift more towards scene-work, as the actors will be assigned scenes from various films that allow them to find a deeper connection with their scene partner, as well as explore the arc of a character within a given scene.

We encourage actors to immerse themselves in both the Television week and Film week as it is a comprehensive training ground that covers the breadth of the industry. If actors wished to do both the June YPAC and the August YPAC, that is also encouraged, as the material and curriculum will evolve from June to August.


$1000 for either TV or Film Intensive

$1600 to combine both TV and Film Intensive


For Kids & Teens: Aug 5-9, 2019
Mon – Fri, 9am – 4pm

The ZBS Episodic Intensive is a one week workshop focused on the process of auditioning for co-star and guest star roles across a wide spectrum of television genres and networks.

Television is going through a true renaissance. With a wide variety of content platforms and writers experimenting with the mix of traditional genres, actors need to be particularly sensitive to the material and their performance within it.  This Episodic Intensive teaches the skills and mindset to be a smart, spontaneous and intuitive actor, able to connect their authentic artistry in these times of innovation.

Students will have the opportunity to work with the entire ZBS faculty in both classroom and panel settings. The Intensive also includes a discussion with industry professionals about current industry trends and demands.  The Episodic Intensive is unique in its focus, scope and intent. (Classes are 16 students max)


$1000.00 for the intensive.
