I know… I was shocked when I totaled that up myself!
But I had no direction and no idea of where to even start. I was naive, overwhelmed and completely green.
So first I paid one-stop shop agencies because I needed comp cards and representation. Then I bought random classes and courses because I had no real direction. Then I attended every "industry" event I could find in order to "network" - after all, it's "who you know", right?
When all was said and done, I had invested over $30,000 to be able to break into the entertainment industry. (And this doesn’t even include all the TIME it took me to figure this out!)
But I absolutely needed to figure out how to build depth and honesty in my performances so I’m grateful for the knowledge and experience. But because I spent so much investing in all these different courses and classes, it was the exact reason that I created Ignite Performing Arts.
Because I don’t want other people to have to struggle and piece together everything like I did. I wanted a step-by-step solution that would help beginning actors and dancers to acquire depth in one place for less than a fraction of the price.
So if you are ready to create honest characters, connect with and move your audience, and deliver deep and emotional performances, then I invite you to register for classes at Ignite Performing Arts so you can tap into depth in your performances in just a few weeks without having to spend countless time and energy on finding your path like I did.
