Auditioning by Heart - Hosted by Jana VanDyke
Crystal Carson’s Auditioning by Heart and Reacting by Heart classes are being offered exclusively to JVA talent only, and at a discounted tuition rate. Although you are welcome to only register for one class, we highly recommend you to take both; actors get the most out of taking both classes together (all 4 days) as they are designed to work together as a two-part class. This will help you ingrain and implement the technique you will be learning to improve your booking rate. And, as a bonus when registering for both classes, you will receive two FREE virtual classes. By registering for the 3-day Auditioning by Heart, you will also receive FREE entry to the Sunday Industry Panel at Georgia State University.

Hear from former students about Reacting by Heart
A TESTIMONY - ReActing By Heart - Actor: Frank Carrijo
“I just finished taking ReActing By Heart class and I finally "get it", not just rationally, but I really FEEL what it means to be in the moment in a whole new, unforgettable, usable, effortless way.
After you understand the rules & technicalities, you will notice that your body and mind will automatically start to respond to the other person. You'll start to have emotions hit and change you. You'll GENERATE THOUGHTS, then look at the other person and say them. You'll really get that the script gives you WHAT to say, but taking in the other person, gives you HOW to say it -- no "pre-shaping".
Even though I am not really thinking up the lines, because the writers has already done that, I feel like I am. ReActing By Heart has helped ME, be more of a REAL human being when auditioning and anytime I'm acting.
It also is the perfect prerequisite to Auditioning by Heart! It supports you, so you can feel safe doing what Crystal is asking of you. I hope you take ReActing By Heart and see for yourself.”
Actor: Frank Carrijo

This on-camera intensive will teach professional actors how to organically prepare for film and television auditions within a short time-frame. Actors receive new sides prior to each class and work daily. "Auditioning by Heart" is a deep exploration of how to create a character's life from the truth through history homework. It is practical, not theoretical, and aims to equip you with all the skills and expertise you need to become dynamic and courageous at your auditions. The training is very much student-centered, giving time for individual attention. Crystal will provide thorough, personalized critiques for actor's who register to be critiqued.
This workshop will empower you to:
Know Your Lines “by Heart”
Live Truthfully Through the Life of the Character
Highlight Your Acting Abilities
Improve Booking Rates
