Aidan Rogers, 7th grader at TRECA Digital Academy, has been selected to audition at the International Presentation of Performers (iPOP!). It’s the largest single event where hundreds of scouts, agents, coaches, and managers are looking for talent! Aspiring performers from over 30 countries come together to train with industry experts and audition in front of professionals.
Aidan’s journey started two months ago when he saw an ad to audition for an acting and modeling workshop in Columbus. Aidan said he’s always been very shy, but always had a secret dream of acting. He said his mom was completely shocked that he wanted to audition!
There were 300 kids at the audition and 25 were selected to participate in the workshop. Aidan made the cut! He received coaching in auditioning techniques, monologues, improv, acting principles, and more. Much of the content was delivered from big Hollywood names including Robert Vito from Spy Kids and famous director and acting coach, Julian Georgeo.
After the workshop, Aidan was personally selected by Julian Georgeo to attend iPOP! in January 2018 in Las Vegas! He is beyond excited about the possibilities! He is hoping to be selected for a commercial, magazine, or even a TV show.
Aidan says he will always continue to meet his goals, maintain honor roll at school, and encourage others to reach for their dreams. We’re so excited that you found your path, Aidan! We will all be rooting for you. Break a leg!
