Most professionals – from surgeons, customer service agents, teachers, and athletes – continuously practice and develop skills that keep them on their game and expand their level of expertise. It’s said that practice allows us to perform any task while using less and less brain activity: has there ever been a time that you came up with an idea while driving, in the shower, or brushing your teeth? Imagine a world in which you feel confident and totally prepared for any challenge that comes your way in the audition world – a world in which you are less in your head and the most open you’ve ever been. A world in which your work and preparation allows you to let true, genuine moments flow through you.
Join Christy every week for an ongoing workout that will expand your practice, grow your confidence in the audition process, and open your mind.
BY APPLICATION OR INVITATION ONLY.

Your weekly workouts are mostly on-camera, giving you an opportunity to become fully comfortable working in front of the camera. And to then watch your work and see the growth you make each week.
You are assigned series regular, guest star, and co-star scenes and monologues from television and film. Additionally you find your own material. Whatever the script, you’re asked to receive feedback and make it work, using it instead of taking it.
Also on-camera, you work with a variety of practices to create work right there in the room.
On occasion, we invite special guests to speak with us about their experiences in the industry, professionals who help demystify common thoughts we have about those other people in the room and the decision makers in the audition process.
This class is not an audition or employment opportunity and there is no suggestion or guarantee of an audition or employment as a result of taking this class..

What Actors are Saying
Christy’s on-camera class is different from any other classes I’ve taken in LA or NY. She really loves actors. She loves casting. And she respects the process. She tries to push you within your comfort zone and is truly interested in you and your journey. I’m learning that it’s okay to fail. To not be perfect. That striving to find the truth in a performance is the most important thing for an actor. I highly recommend her class to actors of all levels. A must in today’s “casting off tape” world.Kat Ahn THE OFFICE
I can't say enough good things about this class! Christy has a unique perspective and a real love for actors. She is a an invaluable resource and a great person to have on your side. She creates a wonderful environment for actors to really push themselves. Her honesty and commitment to the work is refreshing and she's definitely one of the best casting directors you can work with.Jamieson Rhyme LAW & ORDER: SVU

Christy is consistently honest in the room. She finds a great balance between encouraging us to "bring ourselves" to each role and also challenging us to grow in our range, both technically and internally. She has high standards and is straightforward about what is working and what is not working. For me, this is essential as it clears a path to what I need to work on in order to improve both the consistency of my auditions and the depth of my acting outside of auditions. I feel safe in her class but I never feel coddled. Also, she's funny. Love her!Cerris Morgan-Moyer Appaloosa
