Dancer Transition Workshop: Acting for TV/Film

Dancer Transition Workshop - Center Your Resources for TV Film

Coach: Nadine Wright (Bio)

The ACT2Pro Dancer Transition Workshop is for professional ballet, modern, contemporary and hip hip dancers interested in building upon their experience and resources and transitioning into TV/FILM careers. 

Workshops are specifically designed as an intense immersion into craft, allowing dancers to experience the fundamentals of TV/Film acting and the skills taught in weekly on-camera scene study classes. 

Generally, given their strong performance experience, dancers can enter directly into the ACT2Pro 'Intro Level' On-Camera Scene Study class where the fundamentals of on-camera acting are taught. Given a master acting instructor capable of speaking the language of today's dancers, dancers can build upon their experience and advance through the ACT2Pro tiered class structure and reach Level 1 and Level 2 training where many dancers have transitioned into working professional actors booking commercials, lead and recurring roles in the TV/Film industry. As there is a significant requirement for background dancers and actors (with dance as a special skill) in many TV shows and independent productions, ACT2Pro On-Camera Scene Study classes provide an excellent, highly effective and inspiring path for dancers to open new doors, transition into the TV/Film Industry and confidently present themselves as highly competitive, professional actors.

"I admire Nadine’s ability to guide the artists in ACT2Pro to their fullest potential. Nadine has influenced me to ask thought-provoking questions that have helped me grow as an artist and person. Coming from a primarily dance background, I feel lucky to have an acting coach who can identify my strengths and show me how to efficiently transfer and combine my knowledge as an artist. Nadine’s encouragement to leap boldly in the direction that scares me has consistently led me to surpass my own expectations and has revealed to me that the possibilities are endless. I am grateful for the challenge that Nadine’s class provides."

“In my twenty years working as a professional artist, Nadine Wright is hands down the most invaluable coach and mentor that I’ve had the pleasure of working with. She has an innate gift for seeing artists for who they truly are, and makes it her mission to help guide the artists she works with to see and believe in their power, and hold them accountable for always showing up authentically and unapologetically. Nadine is extremely invested in each of the artists she works with, and goes above and beyond (inside and outside of class) to help her clients reach their goals, and navigate the inevitable challenges along the way. My time working with Nadine has been truly transformative. Not only has she helped me efficiently transition from a professional dancer to a working actor, but she has also played a large hand in helping me regain my sense of self and championing me to find my voice as an artist and woman. For the first time in my adult life, I feel reconnected with who I am, what I want, and what I’m capable of, and am immensely grateful for the immeasurable impact Nadine and the ACT2Pro community have had on me both personally and professionally. ACT2Pro is the best part of my week. Regardless of what’s going on in the outside world, I know ACT2Pro is a safe space where I can show up exactly as I am to play, express, and explore. The ACT2Pro environment is carefully curated to foster vulnerability and openness - it’s a place where I feel not only accepted, but also celebrated for being all that I can be (in all my forms!) ACT2Pro is a community where we, as an artistic collective, want to see each other thrive. In my time with ACT2Pro, I’ve had the joy of witnessing the growth of countless artists week after week, month after month, year after year, with Nadine’s persistent coaching and support. ACT2Pro is guaranteed to be a shapeshifting experience - one that I’d recommend to any artist, living anywhere, at any point along their artistic journey.”
