It's time to keep each and every one of you in the loop about my adventure in California. Yes, I left even further East Coast. From Rhode Island, to New York/New Jersey, and now Hollywood.
In April, it will be a year since I have arrived and I've been working really hard to get to where I am now.
and continuing to work as an artist…
and starting over.
2015 has been the year of starting over for me, so December isn't the ending of the year…but the beginning.
Everything takes time, so I am using the time that I have towards the goals that I want to achieve. With that being said here is what DAHIANA TORRES has been up.
First and foremost, I'm a participant in the 2015 Audition Competition, and I need your help. Stop reading, and click on this link and vote for me. Just enter your email, and click on the GREEN VOTE button. The contest is judged by the quality of the performance. and the number of votes. Make the votes count! Check out the performances, join the contest if you're an actor yourself, but don't forget to VOTE for yours truly.
So what else is going on?
Besides, doing my homework and networking…I've gone back to school.
Yes! I never thought that I would go back but I began training at Playhouse West and am thrilled! The talented Tessa Thompson (Creed) trained at the same school with the same professors that I will be training and yesterday was my first day.
Last month I was "blessed" to play the role of a pregnant mother, and the experience was truly amazing. Roles like this remind me on why I act. I started laughing to myself because as an actor…. I've given birth, but I am not a mother. I've been married but I don't have a ring, I've been drunk, but truly never. ACTING IS BEAUTIFUL AND I WOULDN'T TRADE IT FOR ANY OTHER PROFESSION.
I have an agent…
...A job that gives me the flexibility that I've always wanted.
Oh and I also took April Yvette Thompson's class Find your F* It Moment and my list of things to do has grown. I've realized I have more work to do and I won't stop until I get there. I had to cut out the distractions that were not really helping. The class was worth every dime.
Los Angeles requires new head shots, so I had my headshot session with Karine Simon, who was recommended by my good friend Kalon Jackon (One of the Executive Producers for my film,
Pain Love & Passion. Oh and well Pain Love & Passion is in the works of getting you more good news, but that's a future conversation. And if you haven't bought my film Pain Love & Passion yet, shame on you… Get your copy now on amazon!
And last but not least, I received the award for Best supporting actress in a feature film by the World Music and Independent Film Festival for Bachelorette's Degree. It doesn't stop there though! I was informed recently, that Bachelorette's Degree will have nationwide distribution in 2016.
I will definitely keep you in the loop, as to how you can obtain your copy.
My journey continues.
I'm living, I'm loving, I'm laughing, I'm dancing….
(and I'm struggling, but that side comes with the journey of a Dreamchaser)…
Don't ever stop chasing your dreams! That is unless…you find another dream to chase. :)
