Guest teachers listed for the classes are based on their availability and not guaranteed. All of our classes with guest casting directors including this class are a learning experience. It is not an audition or employment opportunity. When the workshop/class is over, the casting director/casting associate/session director (whichever is applicable) teaching this workshop will not be taking home nor be given access to your headshot, resume or any other of your promotional materials.
Please note the STUDIO at which each class meets. We now have two spaces. The ChicagoAve studio is at 1915 W. Chicago Ave 60622 and Ravenswood is at 3701 N. Ravenswood Ave. #201 60613

Ivcich CORE Intensives
Ivcich CORE Advanced
Apply what you learned in CORE three-day intensives to cold reading, memorized monologue, improvisation, and scene structuring. Learn how to trouble-shoot audition issues, encounter new scripts, and get loads of stage time that will keep you ready for “action.”
CORE Advanced can be taken as often as you wish. It’s a great way to keep you growing creatively on an ongoing basis.
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.

There’s a big difference between understanding your lines and bringing them to
life in an audition or performance. I’ve often listened to actors give genuinely
insightful interpretations of their lines and then see those same lines die a slow
death in front of the camera or on stage. The problem is that their insights have
to be translated into human behavior, into something that will be believable as a
human being actually experiencing something. Most actors don’t have a clue
about how to do this.
There’s only one thing that can translate insight into action and ironically enough,
you’re doing it right now. You are experiencing! You translate your interpretation
of the words into action through your moment-to-moment experiencing. Knowing
how to do this is at the heart of every CORE Intensive.
With a CORE Intensive you are not learning a method or system. The approach
is experiential. You learn how to experience your way through every audition,
every performance. To find out if this approach is right for you, you need to try it
on. Take a 90-Minute Exploratory with Steven Ivcich, the originator of CORE, on
Saturday, March 7th (1:00-2:30pm) or Monday, March 9th (1:00-2:30pm). The
class is free and you get a “hands on” feel for how CORE can work for you. To
attend you must register here.
Yep, it’s true!

As a child’s acting coach, I often hear the same scenario from the parents of my young students. Mom or Dad agrees to have their child audition for a professional role—they then spend time helping the child prepare, putting together the child’s resume and picture, coordinating their outfit, running lines, taking time out of the family schedule to get their child to the audition, and so on. Once there, the child enters the audition room without mom or dad. When they return, the parents eagerly ask how it went, and the child responds with a vague “fine”. 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
