This is an ongoing on-camera class where you will explore and deepen your craft through career and Industry discussion, writing, and a variety of on-camera scene work. Additionally, you’ll be introduced to other practices to sharpen your approach to all of your work.

Taught by Guest BGB Master Teachers this ongoing weekly practice will strengthen your acting muscles so that you can work at your absolute best, all the time. And- just as essential- be a whole, happy artist.


The Casting Room

Bring your best self to the work every time!

You are- and always will be- walking into rooms where people don’t know you. How long will it take for them to get to know you? What do you have to do in order to take command of that space and show yourself fully?

Throughout each month you will: 

  • Create from a place of specificity, power and ease- both on-camera and off.
  • Cultivate and maintain a practice of presence.
  • Increase your confidence and comfort on-camera, in your audition experience, and in your career- through scene work, improv, written and created work.

Join our amazing BGB Master Teachers as you claim and express your bold, unique voice in your auditions. Bring the kind of work you are capable of all the time into whatever room, stage or set you inhabit.
