Can you imagine performing in front of 20 top talent agents? in NYC?
Connect NYC is an opportunity for aspiring models and talent to travel to NYC and perform for agents, talent managers, Broadway scouts and casting directors. The Connect NYC is held at The Victor Borge Hall on Park Ave and 38th Street in Midtown Manhattan. This small, boutique style event creates an intimate scouting experience to individually showcase each model and performer.
Unlike mega-conventions, Connect NYC keeps the event limited to 60 or fewer performers. This gives the performer an optimum platform to gain notice from the very people who launch successful careers for talent and models. Connect NYC provides actors, models, singers, and dancers performance opportunities in Monologues, Improvisation, TV Commercial, Singing, Dancing and fashion “go-sees.” Our talent will meet at the theatre for rehearsals on the day of the show. After rehearsals are complete, the show begins the same evening. Agents arrive that evening to watch the showcase and scout for new talent. After the show, NY agents meet with us and discuss their interest in the talent. We cannot promise that all talent will receive a callback. However, for those who do receive a callback, we will schedule a private callback appointment for the talent, so you can gain valuable feedback. For those that received a callback, the interviews are held at the agents’ offices during the next two days.
The next Connect NYC dates are June 2nd-5th, 2019. The cost to attend Connect NYC is $1695. PAYMENT PLANS ARE OFFERED. If you pay in full, you can save $200. The price includes specific training and preparing for the showcase. Spots are very limited and you MUST be invited to attend the showcase. Payment plans are offered to help our talent attend this amazing event. The cost does not include hotel and travel expenses.
