Acting is a Craft, but Auditioning is a Skill! In this 6-week online intensive, actors will learn to harness an arsenal of tools to create a systematic, progressive, and repeatable process throughout the audition process, despite the pressures of time and stress. Through a radical mindset shift, we’ll reconfigure the psychology of auditioning to conquer fear, remove blocks, cultivate flexibility, and amplify your individual creative voice, from the moment you receive an appointment to the moment you leave the room. Additionally, we’ll be working through an exhaustive set of scenarios including in-person auditions, cold-reading, monologues, prepared sides, zoom appointments, TV/FILM, and self-tapes, preparing students to meet the ever-changing demands of the industry with confidence, creativity, and consummate joy.
