Announcing the GRAND OPENING of the NEW Actors' Loft in Worcester's Canal District!
Worcester, MA - On Saturday January 24, 2009 Central Mass Dance Academy will be opening the doors to the BRAND NEW Actors Loft, a full scale acting school and vocal training facility located in the heart of Worcester's ever popular Canal District. The loft, located at 65 Water St, is being billed as Worcester's acting alternative. Often time’s students from across Central Massachusetts, as well as the surrounding areas, have had to go a long distance to get formal acting training, taking classes in Boston, Providence or New York. But the Actors' Loft will soon be changing all of that as it will be offering Worcester, and the entire Central Massachusetts area, a full schedule of various acting courses, every semester, year round!
The classes being offered for the lofts inaugural semester are Acting for Beginners, Beginners Vocal, Advanced Vocal, Scene Study, Cold Read, Commercial & Monologue, Acting for Teens, Acting for Kids, Film Acting I & Film Acting II (a class in which the students will actually star in their very own short film that will be shot in and around the city!) With all of these choices the Actors' Loft is determined to become the home for professional formal acting and vocal training in Central Massachusetts.
At the helm of the Loft will be Worcester's own Anthony Vorres. Anthony is an experienced actor, whose background is not only routed in acting, but in writing, directing and producing as well. Anthony has served as the writer, director and producer for four very successful plays, he has starred in numerous independent films and TV shows and next year he will resume work on his directorial film debut in 'One Cruel Day', a film in which he also serves as a producer, writer and lead star. In addition to all of that Anthony also worked as the Development Coordinator and House Manager for The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts during its 2008 inaugural season, and more recently as an instructor for the IMTA (International Model Talent Association). The IMTA is a nationwide competition that takes place every year in Los Angeles and NYC, it is a forum where actors from all across the nation can go to perform for some of the biggest agents and casting directors in the world. Last week, Anthony’s group of students returned from Los Angeles, where they beat out every other group in the country and swept the awards! Including one student that walked away with the prestigious ACTOR OF THE YEAR AWARD!
