A one time class offered occasionally for PARENTS, teens, newcomers, stage actors, VO talent, print models and talent who have taken a few years off. Ages teen and up (younger age must be pre-approved). Great for parents whose kids want to do commercials. Parents can learn what is really involved, what they and their child would be getting into. Great for people who are curious about commercial work. Content heavy, this class is about the BUSINESS of commercial work.
