Navigating the path of living the life YOU want

"If you are alive, you have purpose" Caroline Myss 

Many artists are constantly second guessing themselves.  Their choices in the room and in life.  They are constantly asking if they are "on the right path" and often when "obstacles" appear on the path it is believed a wrong turn was taken.  In this workshop we explore how the path is giving you everything you need to grow in your artistry to move you to the next level.  Learning to reframe obstacles as opportunities and rejection as redirection we plunge into our purpose in a whole new way.  If you feel you are on the wrong path, or stuck not moving on any path this workshop could help you see in a whole new light.

MARKETING YOURSELF FOR EPISODIC SEASON with Jessica Blank and AGR Founder Jen Rudolph

It's the busiest time of the year right now, with over 90 shows shooting in New York. But as we all know, it's a highly competitive market, with literally thousands of actors clamoring to get seen. In a saturated market, during the busiest season, how do you stand out so that your unique self gets seen, noticed, and brought in?

Optimal marketing is a crucial tool in the actor's arsenal. You literally cannot have a thriving career without it. But too many actors shy away from marketing, resist it, or do it half-heartedly--whether we're worried about being "selly" and  "inauthentic" or just plain don't know where to start. This class, led by Jen and Jessica, will teach you proven strategies to get the attention of CDs and reps- and to do so authentically, in alignment with your own creativity, artistic expression and who you really are.

Price: $60 
Limited to 60 students

"You have to drop all your defenses, only then is intimacy possible,  We are all hiding a thousand and one things, not only from others but from ourselves."  Osho

It is time to dive deep and come to your artistry as you were designed to.  Actors are Storytellers of the human condition yet so many of us are hiding away the parts of our own humanness that we dislike or think is messy or ugly.  Learning to accept both your shadow self and your light is the first step to enlightened acting.  It is a vital step in learning to connect with your reader, your collaborators, authentically connect with casting and all the characters you meet along the way.  From this place of intimacy we begin to connect to our primal and exciting abilities to create INSTANT chemistry -- in an audition, on set, anywhere.  If you desire to move from outside to in the game you must first up level your bravery and commitment to yourself.  Come find out how.
