Being an actor is a mix of things that you did not necessarily know you were signing up for, right? Acting can be fun and rewarding, but it can be hard work, not to mention everything you have to do outside of the craft itself.
Did you know you were going to need a business degree as well as actor training? And what about the part where you are supposed to be soft and vulnerable on
the inside and tough and resilient on the outside?
Those things must have been in the small print!
We're reaching out to some of our favorite industry professionals to come and talk
about everything it's gonna take to get your acting work out there and
get down to business. Literally.
Whether it's demystifying reps, making an actor action plan, or taking time to reawaken your inner artist, we have the class for you.
