You are unique to the universe. And that is why you will book work.

Becoming a part of the Industry can feel overwhelming. Without guidance, uncertainty can rob you of the creative spirit you need to succeed. How can you be fully seen- by the Industry- as the unique, talented artist you are? To have the career you want, you’re going to have to unearth your distinctive voice as an actor, and the only way you do that is to nurture the fire that started you on this path in the first place.

The Core Monday pours gas on that fire and lets it rage.

The Core Monday gives you the confidence, artistic power, and practical skills to take your craft and your career to the next level. These 8 weeks sharpen your instrument to an undeniable point, and show you how to bring the totality of your talent into your auditions and self-tapes, on stage, and on set. This transformational hybrid class sets you on the path of life-changing training that will serve as your artistic foundation for the rest of your days.

Led by the wonderful Melissa Coleman-Reed and other fantastic BGB Master Teachers, you get to discover and dig deep into the core of who you are as an artist and apply it to scene work, auditions (and self-tapes), work you create (yes!) and your overall career journey. The class offers a unique, multi-faceted exploration into the depths of your artistry and how that impacts your career. You will explore various practices, discover powerful connection to your scene partner with emotional specificity, build your on-camera skillset, and begin to truly own your artistic power.

The work...

Audition, self-tape and on-camera work, scene work, creating, and Industry guidance all help you focus your talent and electrify your artistry. This 8 week journey helps you find your unique voice as an actor and reveals what might be in the way of the fullest expression of that voice.

You will work in-Studio for most of your classes, with 1-2 classes on Zoom. Your scene material will be provided for you or you’ll be asked to bring in a scene for 1-2 units. After your audition unit’s work is recorded, it will be sent to you for review.

This class is not an audition or employment opportunity and there is no suggestion or guarantee of an audition or employment as a result of taking this class.

"I absolutely loved my time in the Core class. I recommend this class to anyone who needs a renewed sense of fun in their work. After taking many technique-based classes, I needed to infuse ‘me’ back into my work and my process. The unique way BGB has crafted this course aids each actor in developing their own way. I can't even fully describe how amazing this class was for me and the immediate difference I began to see and feel in my work."

- Taylor Polidore, BLACK LIGHTNING

"Your Studio, starting with The Core, has completely changed my life for the better these last two years. Many thanks!"


"I’ve been in so many classrooms including conservatory, on camera and scene studies and  I am so happy that I found someone I can trust. Alexandra is smart, knows how to help you with your instrument and your mind blocks. She will help you be the most free and confident self as you work with her. Also, she is a pretty amazing human being."

- Alyssa Kim, DAVE
