Now's the time to get in the room and work with NYC's top CDs. The Monday Night Class is a powerhouse networking tool and an incredible educational opportunity for its attendees.
Dates: Mondays, December 5th, 12th, 19th 2016 & Monday, January 2nd 2017
Capacity: Each class section is limited to 8 students!
*Please be advised that there may be 1 extra student per section on any given week due to someone making up a class.
Location: AGR, 15 West 28th Street, 9th Floor, NYC 10001
Some of the unique benefits of the class include:
Over the course of 4 weeks, actors get to work on camera with 4 major film & television casting directors PLUS Jane Dashow, an amazing senior staff member at The Actor's Green Room. Actors get to build relationships with the guest casting directors and work with them in their medium. Each class session begins with a Q&A with the guest casting director. Next, each actor will work one on one on camera with the guest casting director and Jane Dashow while the rest of the class watches via a television monitor. When in the room, actors will receive adjustments to tweak their performances and will learn what each of the guest casting directors look for in an audition. Actors are supported by an outstanding reader and are emailed their on camera work in the form of a QuickTime HD movie after each class.
With an ambience and camaraderie that can't be beat, The Monday Night Class provides the educational and networking opportunities that truly make a difference in an actor's career.
