On April 28th, Julie Nation models, actors, singers, and dancers performed for a panel of agents, casting directors, and local employers during our Model & Talent Showcase. Performances are held in the morning of this all-day event, with callback interviews during the afternoon. This is how many of our aspiring new talents begin their careers in the entertainment industry, and this April's event was one of our most successful yet!
With only a few weeks following our Showcase, over 50% of our participants have scheduled follow-up interviews at agency offices, received contract offers, and/or booked work as a direct result! And the offers are still coming in! We can't wait to hear which agencies our participants sign with!
During this exciting day, we also held our annual Graduation & Awards Luncheon, presenting students and graduates of our classes in Modeling, Acting, Self-Improvement, and Singing with their class diplomas and awards they have been nominated for by Julie Nation staff and instructors. Highlights of this event included our guest speakers Kali Marie and Derek Stefan, who shared their testimonials as Julie Nation graduates currently working in the entertainment industry. Our recent Performance Singing graduates Sophia, Danica, and Dayren performed their final song choices as entertainment for our lunch, followed by the Performance Divisions for our Showcase participants.
