5 Fast Facts about BeneFIT, a free master class series for entertainers
The YA Sisters, in collaboration with several showbiz professionals, have put together a virtual master class which not only gets entertainers involved but also benefits The Actors Fund, a non-profit which helps entertainment professionals in need.
BeneFIT was created to form a community and a virtual space where like-minded, creative, driven individuals of any skill-level or just desire to learn can find support, learn, and get moving together during a difficult time for free. Anyone and everyone is welcome to join, just sign up in advance through the link below. This is a unique opportunity to crossover TV/Film experience with Broadway, and learn in both capacities!
Here’s 5 Fast Facts about the program!
They offer a variety of content.
BeneFIT is a one-of-a-kind experience for anyone of any age and any level to have virtual face-to-face time with your favorite entertainment professionals. Sing for and get feedback from “Dear Evan Hansen’s” Michael Lee Brown, learn how to tap with “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series’” Larry Saperstein, and talk with TV & Broadway’s young stars, sibling-duos Sophie (Broadway’s “Once,” Currently filming a new project for NBC’s Peacock) & Dalya Knapp (“Les Misérables” & CBS’s “Evil”) and Madison (Broadway’s “School of Rock,” HBO’s “Search Party”) & Isabella Lagares (“I’m Not Him”) sisters. If you’ve ever wondered what it is like to go to a Broadway dance audition come check out our masterclasses with stars of Broadway’s “Hamilton” and “Mrs. Doubtfire”!
The Actors Fund receives donations from the program.
Right now, more than ever, supporting The Actors Fund is incredibly important, with Broadway closed indefinitely. They work to support actors and those who work behind-the-scenes, with anything from emergency financial assistance to affordable healthcare.
You can find upcoming sessions on their website here: www.theyasisters.com/benefit
Our next session is perfect for young people, learn from the acclaimed director of Broadway Workshop’s Marc Tumminelli and the following week learn how to nail a Broadway dance audition with Erica Mansfield. Open to anyone and everyone of all levels and experiences, the schedule is available on our website and is constantly being updated with new guest instructors.
It costs you nothing, but you can donate to help The Actors Fund if you wish.
Every class is free! Each class is donation-based, so when you sign up on theyasisters.com/benefit you can give a donation to support the Actors Fund.
All are welcome!
No matter what level or age you are, there is a class for you! For those who don’t want to participate in class (if you don’t want to sing in a song workshop, etc.) feel free to just attend and be part of the community! We have everything from dancing to singing, talkbacks with your favorite performers, as well as pilates for movers. We want to get you off of that couch, up and moving and creating relationships and memories.
