My next Acting classes will begin on January 18th at Triple Threat Academy on San Rafiel and Tramway from 6-7:30pm the class will last 11 weeks and I will concentrate on auditioning because that is what actors have to be the best at in order to compete for the jobs.
I work on many sets and I always work with actors from L.A., Denver and Dallas right here in New Mexico. This should be concerning to local actors. I know we have the talent to do those roles but for some reason we are not getting the opportunity to get cast into those roles. If this is what you need to work on then please and you want more info call 304-3487 and leave a message.
