The BGB NY MasterClass with Risa

Are you able to walk into the audition room, onto set, and into rehearsal with ease, confidence, and championship-level skills, being fully YOURSELF? Are you finding deep emotional connection in your work? Are you showing up in your auditions with all cylinders firing? Are you bringing artistic leadership to all aspects of your career? If not… this is your class.

The BGB Studio’s NY MasterClass with Risa Bramon Garcia  offers hard-core practical audition practice- an approach to your audition scenes that separates you from the pack- and champion-level skills that allow you to walk into any room, onto any stage or set, and boldly offer your talent with confidence, collaboration, and generosity. 

No matter where you are in your career, now is the time to do the work that books work. Join Risa (acclaimed Casting Director, Director, and Master Teacher) for a transformational day in NY!

This full-day class meets either Saturday, June 13 or Sunday, June 14!

We get it. Your rent, your student loan payments, and the very invalidation of your life choices are at stake every audition.

It’s an emotionally violent industry. And left unchecked, the gut-punch of bad feedback or the deafening silence of no feedback perpetuate FEAR.  You start to turn on your own talent, doubt the power of your deepest instincts. You start to stray from the very thing that books work.

It makes you afraid of the audition and prevents you from investing emotionally in it, as you expect to be disappointed.  Your work begins to narrow and your artistry eventually dies.


You must revolutionize your approach to the entire audition process. You must become a leader in everything you offer the Industry, always doing the work of loving the work, always discovering and expressing what is profoundly unique about you, elevating audition material to the level of unique humanity.

Risa is a woman with knowledge, history, experience, language, depth… and balls. I would encourage anyone to take the opportunity to work with this extraordinary woman. My life is richer for the time I’ve spent with her.

NYC Actor Friends....I am always hesitant to endorse any class without 100% confidence that it is going to be a fruitful and worthwhile endeavor.....and RBG is my JAM. Risa's empirical knowledge and intuition, delivered to you with a perfect mix of warmth and no-BS, are well worth your time and money. Join me if you can!

When I found Risa and BGB I was searching for a missing ingredient to take my work to another level. The lessons I learned will forever change the way I approach material. Within a short time of putting this to use, I found myself landing the kind of role I had always wanted.

Thank you BGB for reminding us that the only limits that exist are the ones we create for ourselves. It is invigorating, incredibly satisfying work all fueled by the heights you lift us to in class. Thank you for caring, for reminding us what is important, and for spreading joy. Grateful is an understatement.

Risa was able to make me, an agent-less, essentially credit-less actor at the time, ask the question — Why not me? She recognized the artist in me, brought it out, and helped me never to be intimidated by external circumstances that have nothing to do with what we do as artists.

Risa’s class is such a wonderfully invigorating day of exploration. The special thing about Risa is that her attitude and passion gives us, as actors, the freedom, and more importantly the permission, to get out of our own way. To be committed to what we’re doing, no matter if it’s right or wrong. I will be back!
