In-Studio at The BGB Studio with 1-2 classes online
Each week you engage in a new way in which to explore your voice, to get personal, specific, and bold, and to challenge your resistance. Facing your fears and your resistance (now more than ever) is a big part of pushing through to absolute, unapologetic freedom in your work.
Your 8 week journey includes assigned scenes, material you bring in, audition/on-camera work- including a unit on self-tapes, along with scene work and some writing- to bring you closer to a more connected, powerful relationship with your work. From your work on camera in person and on Zoom, your clips are sent to you to continue your exploration.
You will do most of your work in-Studio in the physical space at BGB in North Hollywood. 1-2 classes will be online via Zoom. It’s time to come back to the work you love, no matter where it happens. It’s time to always work at a championship level!
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.
"Love, love love The New Work. We wrote and directed each other and critiqued our work. I learned so much. It's more well rounded than I've ever experienced before. I am a different actor today because of these 3 insightful, caring teachers. Thank You BGB!!!"
- Nancy B. Berggren, KIDDING
"The New Work completely rejuvenated my approach to the work and brought me back to life during this difficult time. It solidified the innate necessity for human connection and ignited that, even while we are apart, we can still, and need to, create together. I left the class inspired and activated to fight for our art, for it is essential."
- Samantha Beringer, NASHVILLE
"Sydney continues to light my fire and charge me up. Like an Olympic coach, she gives you the support and offers adjustments that take your work to a new level while celebrating the humanity of each character that is written in a scene. My artistic appetite has grown tenfold since being a part of the BGB family. I can’t wait to continue to grow as an artist, a professional, an actor, and as a person with BGB.”
- Michael Druck, Casting Director
"I highly recommend taking this class with Sydney. She taught me so many valuable skills that I now use in my auditions. AND THE BEST PART IS, I’VE BEEN BOOKING! Thank you Sydney for being such a generous teacher."
-Kimberly Ziler, DANNY DOOM
Being in class and community with Sydney and my classmates is, hands down, the best part of my week. 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. ❤
