Some of what you'll be working on over the 8 weeks includes:
-Last minute audition
-Improv for the audition (a powerful tool)
-Scenes outside the box
You’ll work in-person, along with one class on Zoom- in order to keep you connected to self-taping and what auditions feel like in the virtual space. Each week you’ll get real-world input and tackle all of the audition and self-tape challenges and pitfalls, along with learning ways in which to free your work and show up fully on-camera. This is your reset. The material you work on will be a variety of scenes chosen by you and/or your teachers. The work will be recorded and sent to you for your PRIVATE review.

"Cate leads with the permission to play, which has opened up so many exciting things in my work. Cate has this incredible ability to through the bullshit and get to the heart of it all. She is the rare kind of teacher that you almost welcome falling on your face in front of. She champions you and the alchemy of connecting to the world and people in front of you through truth and play."

"I can’t really give a better testimonial than what happened during my time in the class. Two days after our down and dirty dive into self-tapes for auditions I had one such self-tape. Through the practice of what Sydney had taught us in class about how to really bring yourself into the audition, using the space effectively, and connecting with who and where I am, I got the callback from the self-tape and booked it! This is a great educational space to let yourself be free to explore the life of you that you uniquely bring to every audition. Many thanks and I’m looking forward to furthering myself here."

Being in class and community with @sydsource and my classmates is, hands down, the best part of my week. I'm off of class this month and miss it...can't wait to be back! But if anyone out there reading this is on the fence about BGB, I urge you to give it a try. It's changed everything for me. Being able to connect and respond as a human to another human in real-time, whether in person or on Zoom is everything. It's fulfilling and restorative, and coming off of isolation, it's the antidote to stagnation and fear. For me, being in class at BGB is an act of radical self-love. Sydney's the real deal and I always find something new as an actor and human under her guidance. ❤

"I’ve studied with a few coaches and teachers over the past few years, and I can honestly say that Sydney is for sure one of the best. Sydney is real, authentic, and so compassionate about ensuring her students push themselves and bring out the best they can offer. I had a great time and will look out for any of her future classes!”

"If I hadn’t been in BGB classes, I don’t believe I would’ve booked not only my first job in LA- but my first self-tape audition, period! The work we do in class has fundamentally changed the way I look at self-taping and auditioning. What you say about not worrying about small things, the technical, but focusing on the work. That it’s about the other person in the room. And most importantly, about showing up, taking leadership, and bringing yourself to the work. I mean, that right there, that’s Gold! For it….THANK YOU! I am so grateful for you for all of it, everything!"
