Ivcich CORE - 90 Minute Exploratory
Attend this free 90-minute class and work hands on with Steven Ivcich to see if the CORE Program is right for you.
What you experience in this CORE Exploratory is unlike anything you’ve encountered in other approaches to acting. It optimizes your current skills. At the same time you discover a way of working that is unique to you. Unless you’ve worked with Steven Ivcich before, this will be decidedly new territory for you as an actor. No one ever leaves a CORE class saying, “I’ve seen that before”. As Steven notes, “My way of working presents an entirely new creative space.”
What previous CORE students say about the exploratory...
"If you are truly serious about acting, Steve will help you to unlock doors you didn't even know existed."
"In my opinion, he is a master teacher. His process takes everything you learned in the past and expands it so that you even surprise yourself. He empowers you so that you find your own way."
"If you are at all serious about your craft, you have to add his process to your arsenal."
This class is for actors age 18 and up.

The parents are left to ponder the mysterious inner workings of the audition room. While we can’t expect children to give a detailed analysis of each experience, we can keep these five things in mind to help young actors in their auditions.Read more

Over my long career I’ve gotten to know every aspect of auditioning. As a writer/director I know the frustrations of trying to find the right actor for the role. When I was a casting director I struggled to get the most from actors in auditions. As an actor I’d thoroughly prepare for every audition only to have something unexpected render my preparation useless.
The actor’s dilemma of “how do I get cast” is the flip side of the director’s dilemma “how do I find actors who can engage an audience.” The answer to both questions is CORE. CORE reveals the absolutely essential skills needed to ace an audition and, at the same time, give a director confidence that you are the right person for the role. Read more
