Virtual Master Classes
with All-Star Teaching Artists for May
Debuting as part of a slate of brand new virtual programming just unveiled for the month of May, WHBPAC Arts Academy is offering three exclusive virtual Master Classes: Acting Through Song, Acting on Camera, and Broadway Bound Vocals. Each Master Class will offer a limited number of students intensive training on each topic. “It’s an honor to host this caliber of talent for our community. It’s a rare opportunity for any pre-teen/teen to have access to highly sought after and busy arts professionals that will devote their time just for us,” says WHBPAC Arts Academy Director Kristen Poulakis.
In Acting Through Song on May 13th, Tony and Grammy-nominated actor Bryce Pinkham will give participants expert lessons on how to perfect their technique of acting and emoting while dancing and singing complex numbers on stage. The star of The Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder and The Heidi Chronicles is a graduate of the Yale School of Drama and was most recently seen onstage in The Great Society with veteran actor Brian Cox.
In a new direction, the WHBPAC Arts Academy is offering a two-part Acting on Camera Master Class with veteran NYC casting director and actress Meghan Rafferty. In her Master Class, Rafferty will provide students with constructive feedback along with on-camera audition “must knows” that she feels are imperative to book roles on a professional level. This is a wonderful opportunity to be coached by an expert who worked on casting for Broken Flowers, The Wolf of Wall Street, Cafe Society and The Leftovers, and also starred in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman and The Wolf of Wall Street.
For those who want to work on their vocal techniques, Broadway Bound Vocals will prepare teen singers for the rigorous vocal challenges of singing on the Great White Way. Expert vocal coaches Chris Citera and Alexa Green will work with students on belts, mixes, riffing, and more. Citera and Green are two of NYC’s most sought-after voice teachers for improving vocal technique for musical theater and pop/rock singing. Alexa Green (Wicked) and Chris Citera are both actors, singers, and Ivy-league educated voice technicians, whose students have appeared on and off-Broadway, in national tours and regional productions, and include professional singer-songwriters and recording artists.
Acting Through Song runs May 13th at 4pmEST
Acting on Camera runs May 20th and 27th, at 4pmEST participants must register for both classes.
Broadway Bound Vocals runs June 3rd at 4pmEST
