Wallace Audition Technique Curriculum – 3 levels of classes to make sure you’re the confident, creative actor who books the job!

Private Foundation Classes – Title

PRIVATE FOUNDATION CLASSES

Private Foundation Classes – Info

It’s time to learn auditioning with the intensity of the actual audition – free from the distractions that a zoom class can present.

That is why, in 2021, I am going to offer only private foundation classes.

Over the years, students in my classes have booked over 1500 professional jobs. Just think of the results we’ll get working one on one!

  • The “most successful audition technique in Los Angeles” will be tailored to your specific needs.

     

  • Together, we will address and eliminate your weakness and have you working strength to strength.

     

  • We will work until we uncover your edge – the quality that breaks you out from the pack.

     

  • Class is taught on your schedule.

  • No more wasting time and money – discover the lifelong value of having your own personal audition technique.

Program: Initial zoom meeting to see if working together is right for both of us.

First Session: 3 hours, followed by a 15-minute assessment of progress and discussion of the focus of your homework. 

Second Session: 2 hours followed by the same 15-minute assessment.

Third session: 2 hours followed by final assessment and recommendations for further learning and career strategy.

For the former 8-week class summary click here. This will be used as the template we will personalize to you.

    Master Class – Title

    MASTER CLASS

    Master Class – Info

    Now that everyone has come thru the Foundation Class Program – It is time to come together as a group– where we can grow artistically, further hone our skills, and learn from each other. 

    Following is a breakdown of some of the topics we’ll be addressing and working on in the Master Class. There is more than just this list – ultimately, we will do what will help the actors in each specific class learn and grow! 

    TEXT WORK: The Master Class will start with 2 weeks of text analysis. You will learn how to become an expert text detective by using the text investigation system I created from time spent in script development and my experience of working with award winning screenwriters. This work will give you a huge edge in your auditions!

    ENERGY: Your personal energy is your most defining characteristic.  The tension of the audition can freeze your energy, resulting in a stiff “neck up” audition. Using body positioning, breath exercises and other tools, we’ll give you access to your most powerful asset.

    DEEP LISTENING: We will be working on the formula of listen – react – respond and deepening your ability to relax, connect with power and intensity, and truly live in your reactive moments.

    IMAGINATION: When your imagination is alive, you are at your most creative and unique. Using writing exercises, role play, meditation and storytelling, you will be able to tap into the most creative part of the brain and bring decisions that are expansive and fascinating to your auditions. 

    GENRE: We will study the many genres of current programs and films in order to find the energy that drives each and the requirements of the specific roles within the genres.

What has proven so enormously effective in his classes and workshops is now available to all students of the performing arts.
