KNOXVILLE  AREA  03/30/2015

ACTING CLASS FOR AGES 8 - 12 TAUGHT BY JAYNE MORGAN

Recently I’ve been coaching kids for film and television auditions and I’ve noticed that many of the young actors, while talented, don’t know what is expected of them or how to make their own choices about character and delivery. This is a major stumbling block to getting cast. This class will focus on empowering your child to use their personality and imagination to make a part truly theirs.

This is a six week acting class for kids interested in learning professional level acting techniques for film and theatre.  Each class will include practical work on improv and auditioning, scenes or monologues. Classes  meet in the Bearden area.

CLASSES START SATURDAY, April 11  from 1 – 2:30. Limited to 8 students. NEW DISCOUNTED PRICE - $135.00 payable by cash or check at the first class. Sign up by emailing me at jemknox at gmail.com.

**EXTRA SPECIAL:  Current students  get a 50% discount on private coaching/audition taping anytime between April 11 and  May 16!

ALL TALENT

Would like to remind talent/models, when you see a posting on any social network/media that they are looking for talent/models for any project please remember if you suggest a person or send out to someone or share on your page you are costing possibly yourself or one of your fellow actors/models a job and money out of everyone's pocket.  We know you are trying to be helpful but if there is someone you think would be right, you can contact your agent and the agent can then contact them to see if they are interested in working or suggest to them that they contact the agent about the possibility of an acting/modeling job if interested.  Talent/models need to be paid properly for their time and experience so that rates don't keep decreasing and there is still plenty of work available for those who have chosen to be in the business.  Thanks
