Are you at the top of your game?

Are you able to walk into the audition room, onto set, and into rehearsal with ease, confidence, being fully YOURSELF? Are you finding deep emotional connection in your work? Are you working with all cylinders firing? Are you bringing artistic leadership to all aspects of your career?

If not…

The Advanced MasterClass is an essential 8-week intensive taught by Risa Bramon Garcia (director, casting director, producer, teacher of 40 years) along with BGB Master Teachers. Dismantling the fear, Risa guides you to your boldest, most personal and authentic self, creating space for you to make your most truthful choices in your preparation, in the casting room, on set, and on stage.

Your work together is to unearth your unique voice as an actor- and beyond, to practice presence, to allow YOU to be fully seen, and to deeply affect your audience, no matter the genre, the room, the circumstance — and come back to the joy of the work you love!


What works in here works everywhere.

The Advanced MasterClass introduces you to a whole new way of experiencing your acting practice.

It is not an audition 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 and the “perceived” Industry. 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 in 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 and lead with artistic power! 

Everything changes the moment you apply.

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 2 of the classes), along with Meisner exercises, Improv, storytelling, and writing to bring you closer to a more connected, powerful relationship with your work. From your work on camera, your clips are sent to you to continue your exploration.

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!
