Pick up the September issue of TimeOut New York Kids for a crash course on breaking your child into showbiz. The article is packed with resources, websites, and details on how to self-submit your kid to agencies and casting directors for auditions, castings, and open calls.
Whether your child is into modeling, acting, dance or all three - this article is worth a read. Lucky for you, you don't have to buy the mag, this article is featured on its website, along with a host of links to helpful resources. But if i were you I'd get it anyway. I absolutely love this magazine - almost as much as my fashion glossies - because of all the awesome things NY has to offer our little munchkins.
Take Away: If you have the flexibility, the fervor, patience, and thick skin...oh and a child who actually wants to be in the biz...then give it a shot - but don't get carried away. When it stops being fun - find something else do. TimeOut Kids has plenty of suggestions!
