All Behind The Velvet Rope courses allow small groups of aspiring actors & working professionals (Between 8-20 per class/workshop) to gain intimate access to highly qualified instructors to allow participants to create relationships with others while they learn; by honing the tools of their trade with hands-on exercises and techniques. The best way to learn is by doing, and when you have mentors to guide you as you go, “doing” is easier. Our classes & workshops include courses in various aspects of Writing, Producing, Directing, and Acting.

We add workshops with guest instructors often, and provide info about industry events* when we can.  Please check back to see current offerings.
