Many NYC master classes will focus on the "Broadway Experience." At Broadway Edge, we also want your child to experience the joy and exhilaration of working with talented Broadway actors. We then believe in further strengthening their skills utilizing our B.E.S.T. Approach: one-on-one coaching, specified to your child's needs.
At Broadway Edge, our gift is to bring out the gifts in others. We surround your children with the best, so they can be the best. We know that each child's process is different. Our goal is to help them discover and embrace their unique strengths so they can ultimately achieve their personal B.E.S.T. for an audition and for life.
B.E.S.T. is an acronym. The *B* E*S* and *T* must all be present for the student to achieve their highest possible levels of performance.
B = Belief. To deliver a memorable audition, your child needs to strongly believe in his or her abilities. Broadway Edge cultivates belief by empowering through strength awareness and knowledge. This new-found confidence allows each child to spontaneously access their powerful instincts. As a result, they become unstoppable as their belief rises to new levels.
E = Effort and Energy. The most exceptional auditions look effortless, but we can assure you, they are not. The actor's preparation and the energy required to fill a theatre is key. We focus on character development and teach your child how to harness their energy and channel it through their character. Most teachers think nervous energy is a detriment. As a result, children are afraid to feel nervous. At Broadway Edge, we teach each child that nervous energy is a natural and powerful component of the audition process. We teach them how to transform nervous energy into dynamic energy, which ultimately fills a room and creates a memorable audition.
S = Strategy. When it comes to an audition, you never get a second chance to make a first impression. We don't believe in having your child audition prematurely for casting directors. Our strategy is to first have them work with our in-house casting director who will gently guide them through the audition process and casting protocol. In turn, each child will experience a strong learning curve and secure a comfort level that will ultimately allow them to shine during their professional casting showcase...giving them an audition edge!
T = Talent. It is our job to recognize and cultivate your child's talent. It is also our job to choose the right song and the right monologue that will showcase their Talent and give them that "Wow" factor when auditioning.
Casting Directors are not impressed by mechanical memorization. However, they are moved by a child who can spontaneously take direction and successfully deliver. Our B.E.S.T. Approach allows children to create a unique, authentic and memorable audition, one that will set them apart from the rest.
Give your child the Broadway Edge.
