Courtney Reed had the honor of originating the role of 'Princess Jasmine' in Disney's smash Broadway hit Aladdin, directed by Casey Nicholaw in which she received a Grammy Nomination. Before Aladdin she had the privilege of being a part of the closing company of the Tony Award Winning Musical In The Heights written by Lin Manuel Miranda where she played 'Carla,' u/s 'Nina' and 'Vanessa.'

Over the past several years she has appeared on such television shows as: Search Party, The Affair, Law & Order: SVU, White Collar, NYC 22, and CSI: NY, and her favorite web series Submissions Only. She will also be appearing in the upcoming Drake Doremus Film "Endings, Beginnings," starring Shailene Woodley, and the season 2 premiere of "Liza on Demand," starring Liza Koshy.

In our special 2-day Master Class Intensives, students will work on song interpretation, audition technique, and how to connect to their material as well as in-depth discussions on the many different facets of the industry. Our instructors mentor the students about what it is like from start to finish on how to be successful as a professional performing artist. From getting the audition, to how to prepare, what to wear, being in the room, callbacks, rehearsals, stepping on stage, what to say to agents and casting directors, insider industry etiquette, all the do's and don'ts, and so much more.

The Instructors work with each student individually on their material and help them learn their own process of how to get where they need to be to always do their best work. We want to make sure our students know all the things we wish we knew when we were just starting out so that they can get to where they want to be more successfully. Our Mentors have all starred on Broadway, so students will learn from the very best and take this experience and first hand knowledge with them for the rest of their lives.
