Every parent wants to help their child fulfill their dreams and achieve their creative potential. For the young actor, the parent’s role can be all-encompassing. From being an “acting coach” to a professional liaison, the parent sets the tone for every professional experience, and must be able to build and maintain professional relationships. 

With an older teen, the professional expectations change. Suddenly, BOTH the parent and the teen are responsible for the role of “professional liaison.”  How you BOTH communicate with agents, managers, casting, directors, producers directly impacts the teen’s career.     

The Challenge

  1. Most parents are not professionally trained for the true demands of job. Even the best intentions cannot provide the competitive edge that most parents want for their child. 

  2. Most teens do not possess the interpersonal communication skills necessary to build the professional relationships that will advance their career.  At this point in their development, the teen is not only expected to deliver outstanding work in the casting room, but also to have impeccable professional interactions (often the determining factor for success in this field). 

The Solution

The Teen Track in our Building a Dream Team professional training program: 

  1. Provides teens with the skills and tools to deliver an electrifying and unforgettable audition.

  2. Simultaneously provides BOTH parent and teen with a proven approach to professional business communication, essential to building a successful acting career
