This “pros” only class is for actors who are actively auditioning. Being a professional actor means that you are prepared and committed to doing your best! In this class actors will have the opportunity to refine the necessary skills for success by improving their film acting technique, cold reading skills, and gaining greater ease in the audition environment. Through in-depth scene study, actors learn how to evaluate material, make choices, and arrive on set with a performance they can rely on. Space is limited to 8 students.
