BGB TEACHER – FELIPE FIGUEROA
Felipe Figueroa came to the work through a long and joyful stretch in musical theater. After he finished his BFA at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, he moved to LA and has been working ever since. Career highlights include roles on TRANSPARENT, LOPEZ and CRIMINAL MINDS, as well as numerous plays, sketches, and web series. Felipe believes that the trademark of any successful acting career is cultivating a supportive community of creators with whom to collaborate — that way, you’ll always be working and invested in doing the work.
Felipe’s mission is to create a space where all actors can experience the freedom to explore and discover that their artistry is truly limitless when you passionately commit to your practice. He has coached countless actors to successful auditions, helping actors release the need to get their scenes “right” or figure out what it is “they”- casting, producers, etc.- are looking for, and to work from the foundation of who they are despite what a breakdown might say.
BGB has been Felipe’s creative home for the last 3 years and it has truly been life-changing.
Taking a class with Felipe is not an audition or employment opportunity and there is no suggestion or guarantee of an audition or employment as a result of taking his classes.
