I have been chosen to represent Alaska in a national competition by performing theatrically at the Applause Rising Talent Showcase in Orlando, Florida. I would also be instructed by nationally renowned masters in specified training seminars before and during the showcase. Before the ARTS I will be instructed by Laura Dagon and Associates at Laura Model and Talent Agency in Anchorage Alaska. Featured instructors will include Shane Mitchell of Alaska's TBA Theater. These workshops will be bi-weekly and will train and prepare me for the ARTS competition. Sessions include Professional Introductions, Physical Presentation (posture, walking, standing etc), Enunciation, Vocal Clarity and Projection, Monologue and TV Commercial preparation, Photograph and Runway preparation, Headshots and Portfolio photo shoots, and Resume building. "Seminars, Workshops and Panel Discussions [at the ARTS] are conducted by the agents themselves, and are full of up-to-date instruction and advice."(ARTS: What Is the ARTS?). These include Music by Tootie Debennedetto of Sweetheart Records, Modeling by Lawrence Moore the ARTS Director of modeling and talent advisor, Acting by John Baker, How to Present Yourself Professionally by Catherine Schuller of Ford Models New York, NY Casting by Herman Lipson Casting Director Barry Shapiro, LA Casting by Los Angeles Casting Director Megan Foley, Broadway Musical Theater with Tony nominated choreographer and director Dan Knechtges, On Camera TV Workshop with Elissa Markowitz, Call Back Seminar with Disney star Abbie Cobb, Working with Disney by UCLA Manager Michael Wallach and Disney Star Abbie Cobb, Modeling in Asia with Pat Collins, Voice Over Acting with Wally Burr of Wally Burr Casting Los Angeles, and How to Survive this Business by working actress/dancer/choreographer Isis Masoud.
