Theatre Coach Opens Reality-TV School
Theater Coach Opens Reality-TV School
Monday, June 23, 2008 — by Wow Jones
Angela Montefinise reported in Sunday’s June 22nd, 2008 issue of The NY Post that theater coach Robert Galinsky opened The New York Reality TV School and began offering classes/workshops in Manhattan on Saturday, June 21st, 2008. Get a load of this…
The article doesn’t make clear what’s taught at this school, but the story suggests something that people take for granted when watching reality-tv shows. Mainly that reality-tv isn’t “real” and that many of the contestants on these shows are actually talented performance artists to a degree.
The article notes that founder Robert Galinsky, Jorge Bendersky of the reality show “Groomer Has It”, and casting director Robert Russell are lecturers at this school. I don’t know but they probably teach participants how to get comfortable in front of cameras, encourage students to “act natural” and “be themselves”. Perhaps they also stress the importance of “looking the part”.
Any thoughts? Care to comment? Reports on what’s taught at this school? Care to share?
