Above anything else, we are a safe space. We invite you to go beyond what's comfortable and to challenge yourself to grow in an environment of support and encouragement. Our faculty understands that there are many levels represented and they come to us with the sole purpose of helping you work to your maximim potential. No one is grading you. No one is judging you. So put yourself out there to try something new, especially if it's scary or uncomfortable.
You will hear many opinions throughout the course of the workshop. Some may contradict each other, or even what you're told at school. That's okay. We encourage you to respect all opinions, take them all into consideration, and retain those that help you.
We hope to expose you to as many aspects of living and working in NYC as possible. Be prepared with questions and take advantage of the time you have with our teachers, alumni volunteers, etc.
In the spirit of the week, we ask that everyone take part in every class. If you must leave to go to the rest room, do so quitely and be respectful of people auditioning in the other studios. If you are auditing, please do not contribute unless invited to do so.
