Yasmine really stood out from the crowd and took direction beautifully. It was her positive attitude, and natural abilities that earned her a full scholarship to our next event. ~ John Stevens, Co-Founder, Talent INC Canada LTD.

The purpose of the workshop to be hosted by the Ottawa Conservatory is to give parents the tools and proper information they need so that when they meet with people who want to work with their kids, they know what questions to ask and they know what fees and services are acceptable and which are not.
Since the dawn of YouTube, and reality TV shows like, Canada’s Got Talent, So You Think You Can Dance Canada, and The X Factor, parents and kids alike have been obsessed with instant stardom. It is an obsession that is polluting legitimate performing arts institutions globally.
“No one wants to work at it anymore!” exclaimed Talent INC Canada Founder, Doug Sloan.
“These kids and parents see these performers make it seemingly overnight and they think it is easy. They don’t see the hours of training, and countless hours of practice,” added Mr. Sloan.
“Parents need to be the first line of defense to protect their kids from unscrupulous companies that prey on the hopes and dreams of young people,” said John Stevens who is an accomplished performer with credits all over the world and now co-owns Talent INC. Canada with his partner Doug Sloan.
The workshop is designed for parents and young performers and is completely interactive. Parents get to see their child work with Mr. Stevens who is a master level coach with a long list of now celebrity clients. Each child will receive critiques from both Mr. Stevens and Mr. Sloan as well as learn about the business side of acting.
A handful of young performers and their families will be invited to attend a training bootcamp for performers in Toronto this Summer. This is where select talent will have the opportunity to not only further their education in the arts, but they will also have the opportunity to network with some of Canada’s top casting directors, directors, producers, and agents. There will be a short list of top agencies from NY and LA in attendance as well who primarily scout for the fashion industry where it is easier to get sponsorship across borders.
If you would like to attend this Audition Workshop please contact the Talent INC Studios based in Toronto at (647)748-7200. There is no cost for admission to the workshop, but space is limited.
