Workshops tend to fill up quickly so Sara encourages you to take up the opportunity to audit. Auditing is very beneficial as you'll get to hear feedback and insights from those those at the top of their field--giving you a leg up on achieving the best performance on your future auditions and VO endeavors. 

We know times are tough, so Sara is now reserving a few auditor spots for artists in need for all group classes she teaches. If you are struggling, please reach out to apply.

Please email SaraShermanAsst@gmail.com with your name and specify the date(s) of the workshop you'd like to sign up for. 

If you are signing up a child please include your child's name and age.
