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

The ups and downs of the Industry can rob you of the creative spirit you need to succeed. To have the career you want you’re going to have to blow them away, and the only way you do that is to nurture the fire that started you on this path in the first place. 

This transformational 8 week class is a journey back to freedom and power in your acting. Led by Steve Braun and including other BGB Master Teachers, The Core combines Meisner technique, writing, scene-study, on-camera training, and Buddhist Mindfulness to transcend your limitations in your auditions, on set, and on stage. It’s where trained actors go to dive deeper, and where working actors go to re-ignite their creative fire so they can find freedom and joy in their work, and book jobs.

"I absolutely loved my time in The Core Thursday 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

"I have been having an amazing time in class. Steve is awesome- his guiding light in each class experience has helped me peel back layers to get to real truth. I have been rejuvenated and renewed as an actor and my inner child has woken up as well and begun to play. I’m thankful for how beautiful of an experience it has been, along with seeing the lights of my fellow classmates shine so bright. I can’t wait for the next adventures in truth when class resumes. Thank you all so much."

- Benjamin Welch, Homicide Hunter

"Ashley Rideaux is a powerful performer and a generous scene partner. She does her homework and takes bold risks all while being grounded and genuine. Being both deeply intuitive and skilled, as a teacher she will meet you where you’re at and guide you to where you want to be with compassion and clarity. Take this class!"

- Karissa Vacker, NCIS

"Ashley and Eric have affected me as an actor in a very profound way: by simply requesting that we get in touch with our inner selves. To find the through-line within our personal journeys, bringing forth our experiences through vulnerability, in order to find our voices as actors and as people. It’s an approach that no other acting class has ever taught me. I’m deeply indebted to them for helping me make this discovery and I look forward to reaping the benefits of it in my acting career."

- Troy Ian Hal, WESTWORLD

"After surviving a brutal pilot season, I took Corey’s class to find whatever it was that I thought the casting directors and producers and network executives weren’t seeing in me. Pretty quickly into the class I realized that they weren’t seeing me because I wasn’t giving them me. I was giving some bizarro version of the me I thought they wanted. I will forever be grateful to Corey for showing me how to bring myself to the material, and ultimately, the joy back into my work."


"Today’s class was incredible. Trey challenged us, but made it a safe environment to take chances in. So much energy is spent worrying about perfection, or reasons ‘why not’ in this Industry. Today we discussed, in a non-judgmental way, that there are no excuses. Because we're all capable. Of way more than we're used to giving ourselves credit for. Everyone is so comfortable with Trey and jumped right into playing with each other, and exploring the scenes we wrote, without fear."

- John K Moeslein, BLINDSPOTTING
