The Business of Auditioning
THE ARTSCENTRIC ACADEMY offers classes in dance, music, theatre and development. Registration is open and classes commence on Monday, May 22 at ArtsCentric. Located in the Remington area of Baltimore and open to ages 4 and up.
“What to sing? What to wear? Hair up, or down? Should I update my resume? Does that film project count? They asked for 32-bars. Help!” If you’ve ever been thwarted by any of those questions, then join Kevin S. McAllister for an intense 6-week session on building your repertoire, selecting the best song for that audition, and how to manage the audition process. Everyone wants to get the role, but how exactly do you get from the audition, to the callback and in the show? Open to participants ages 18+
Mondays, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM (6 weeks)
