Fierce acting exploration never ends.


The Working Actor

It’s a new day. It’s 2018 and what it means to be a working actor has changed. Success in this business requires razor-sharp chops, a dynamic set of artistic skills and the ability to be a self-starting creator. Actors who don’t embrace that get left behind.

The Working Actor with L. Trey Wilson will empower you to create….on set, on stage, in the audition, in your living room, with an agent, without an agent, anywhere, anytime, anyway. This cutting-edge ongoing acting class weaves championship acting training with writing, creating and performing.  This is the class for this time and place. This is the class that pushes back against the old power structures of the industry where an actor knows her place. This is the class that doesn’t accept that an actor should wait for permission. If you’re an actor right now, this is your dynamic, full-body ongoing workout class.


The Ongoing BGB Workout With Felipe + Risa

The real measure of success in your career is your relationship to your creative experience – to the personal expression of your specific, strong, unique voice.

The Ongoing BGB Workout With Felipe Figueroa + Risa Bramon Garcia is a class for bold artists to do just that. Whether you’re looking to stay sharp between auditions and jobs, cultivate connection to an artistic community, or rediscover the joy of the work you love, this weekly practice will motivate, challenge, and inspire you, raise you to new heights, and bring you back to the work as your touchstone.

The Work

The work is the work is the work. On set, on stage, in an audition, in rehearsal. And to be working at a championship level, you need to be in a sustained practice where you can take risks, go deeper, get messy, and express real human connection. You need a workout that will build your muscles, make you a happier actor, and help you book work.
