THE AUDITION REVOLUTION SUNDAY

A Blueprint For Audition Power

We get it. Your rent, your health insurance, and the very invalidation of your life choices are at stake every audition. And left unchecked, the gut-punch of bad feedback or the deafening silence or indifference start to make you stray from what books work. It makes you fear the audition and expect to be disappointed.  Your work begins to narrow and your artistry eventually dies.

To book work, you must let go and let your unique artistry propel you into the room like a conquering hero. Questions like, “what do I wear?”,  “where do I look?”, “should I sit or should I stand?”, are the questions of an amateur. Champions let the work affect them, have a strong point of view and make bold choices that are guided by their well-tuned instincts. And after doing that work, they walk in the room and boldly offer their work with muscular generosity. The Audition Revolution is an 8 Week Class that shows you how to step boldly into the light of your unique artistry and burn the audition room to the ground with your talent.
