Audition Practices for Film & TV
These classes are not just for the craft of acting. These classes are designed to help students boost confidence in all aspects of their lives. The actor's process forces one to go through a time of trial and error until one finds the perfect choice for their specific role, resulting in many "wrong" choices and some organic ones. Students are encouraged to fail until they get to the best choice. This class allows students to create a freedom in these choices that translates seamlessly into their everyday lives. The class was created to be a safe environment for students to work as a team to guide and support one another to be their very best. Students thrive in a fun, creative environment where there is no wrong answer.
