Front of House
One on One / Next Level is a members-only networking studio for the trained, professional actor to connect with leading casting directors, agents/managers, and filmmakers to attain new levels of success in their careers. We offer exciting programming across 3 campuses: Los Angeles, New York, and Online (Zoom) along with Special Programs & collaborations with renowned institutions such as the USC School of Cinematic Arts Film School & NYU Tisch Grad Film School.
Our mission is to help actors forge their own relationships with the industry instead of waiting for the phone to ring.

We pride ourselves on being a space for the trained, committed actor to build community and network, and thereby being a bridge to their success.
