It’s time to unlock the undeniable power of your talent.

The ups and downs of the Industry can rob you of the creative spirit you need to succeed. To have the career you want, you’re going to have to blow them away, and the only way you do that is by nurturing the fire that started you on this path in the first place.

This transformational 8-week class led by BGB Founders Steve Braun and Risa Bramon Garcia- along with guest BGB Master teachers- is your antidote to a dispassionate Industry, giving you life-changing training that will serve as your artistic anchor for the rest of your days.

You will disrupt the stale patterns in your acting and gain confidence, clarity, emotional power, and the practical skills to take your craft and your career to the next level. You will sharpen your instrument to an undeniable point, and come back to the joy and effortlessness that attracted you to acting in the first place.

You’ll be guided to your boldest, most personal and authentic self, creating space for you to make your most truthful choices in your preparation, in the audition room, on set, and on stage.

This is a rare opportunity to work with both Steve and Risa, co-teaching in an 8-week class, along with a few of our incredible guest Master teachers. 


What works in here works everywhere.

The BGB 8-Week Workout introduces you to a whole new way of experiencing your acting practice. It is not an acting ABC, nor does it give you any tips and tricks. Rather, these 8 weeks blur the lines between your unique artistry and the often paralyzing confines of the audition process, as well as your entire career. You begin to let go of old ways, to stretch beyond your comfort zone. In challenging yourself and each other to show up fully each week, you start to to embrace the wonderful, messy humanity of every relationship and any scene. You get to claim your voice, your courage, and your leadership- with ease, authenticity, and power! You finally rekindle the joy in your practice.

The Work

Each week you engage in a new way in which to explore your unique voice, to get personal, specific, and bold, and to challenge your resistance. And resistance will show up. Facing your fears and your resistance is a big part of pushing through to absolute, unapologetic freedom in your work.

These 8 weeks include assigned scenes, material you bring in, on-camera work (for 1 of the classes), along with Meisner exercises, Improv, storytelling, and writing to bring you closer to a more connected, powerful relationship with your work.

It’s time to come back to the work you love. It’s time to lose yourself in it. It’s time to work at a championship level all the time!

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.
