So tell me about the Breakthrough...
The Breakthrough is an 8 week career mastery course. It's hands-down
the most important and powerful class I teach because when you apply
what you learn, you will see your life and career transform in a massive way.
This is not hype - the number one piece of feedback I get from
Breakthrough grads is, "Dallas, this class changed my life." Prepare for a
major breakthrough in your career.
I've combined the perfect mixture of bold action with personal
development to take you on a game-changing journey you'll never
forget. You will put all of my core teachings to work while I
personally walk you through your own unique journey to acting
success. This class is no joke. It's designed to stretch your
comfort zone and get you working!
Best of all, The Breakthrough is a tele-seminar. This
means you can participate in my signature program
from anywhere in the world.
- Dawan Owens
I thought The Breakthrough was going to be about how I can do better business as an actor. It’s much more than that. I’ve learned how I can do better in my entire life. It’s like “The Biggest Loser for Actors.”
- Courtney Clark
I now have the manager of my dreams, I booked a huge feature Blockbuster, got my first write-up in Deadline.com booked a TV show and had a studio meeting with one of the biggest heads of casting! Best of all, I no longer feel like I am exhausting myself and still getting nowhere. Thanks to the Breakthrough, I know exactly what to do and what is in my control.
- Brad Blaisdell
I booked my first Guest Star in three years using Dallas’ techniques. She opened up my mind and inspired me with her enormous passion for helping actors find success.
Your Breakthrough Curriculum
Take a Quantum Leap
Fast tracking your acting success is easier than you think. It’s not about working harder; it’s about changing the way you think about the business and your place in it. I’ll show you how to choose the right goal to create a major career breakthrough. Plus I’ll help you identify the important mindset shift you need to turn your goal into a reality in just eight weeks.
Set a Strong Foundation
Jim Rohn said that you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. During Week Two, you’ll learn how to align yourself with the right people, how to build the right systems to support your success, and how to design an environment that inspires you to be your best. Plus, you’ll learn my five secrets to maximize your time.
Build Powerful Relationships
Here comes the fun part... I’m going to challenge you to solidify strong relationships with your peers through goal sharing and asking for help. I’ll also show you how to bridge the gap between friendship and business so you can move forward faster in your career and feel like a partner rather than an outsider in the industry. After completing The Breakthrough, you’ll be a networking machine who confidently connects with anyone in the business without feeling fake, needy, or gross.
Bust Through Bad Habits, Energy Blocks, and Fears
During Week Four, you’ll learn how to easily overcome the fears and indecision that keep most actors stuck. I’ll help you expand your comfort zone and embrace the process of change. You’ll examine the past habit, expectations, and limiting beliefs that have prevented you from truly getting what you want and leave the Breakthrough well-equipped and ready to create the results you’ve desired for so long.
Meetings, Mentors, and Killer Questions
It’s hard to put yourself out there and ask for what you really want. It’s also challenging to reach past your immediate circle of friends and connect with influencers and power players in the business. But in Week Five, I’ll teach you how to request mentorship meetings with people you admire with sincerity and professionalism. Plus, you’ll learn my proven four-step process to bringing any meeting to a close so you can leave with confidence and clarity about how to move forward.
I am completely committed to your success! That’s why Week Six of The Breakthrough is designed to take a deep dive into your most burning career questions. We’ll take the week to regroup, catch up, and fully integrate everything you’ve learned into your everyday life.
Identify Your Core Values to Uncover Your Big Why
I’ll help you clarify what matters most to you and identify where your career is not fully aligned with your values. We’ll also examine your personal career history to discover the patterns and habits that truly support you and those that must be left behind. This week is all about taking complete ownership of your career and taking dominion over your future.
Learn the Seven Pillars of Acting Success
As we wrap up The Breakthrough, you’ll learn that success is less about what you do and more about who you are. I’ll give you a refreshingly holistic approach to the business that will liberate you while giving you a deep sense of control. We’ll also identify how you can take your Breakthrough even further as the program comes to a close.
Does this tele-seminar thing really work? 100% yes.
I used to teach this class in person, and since moving it online, students are more connected to one another and actually accomplish their goals more quickly.
You'll join me for a live call once a week where I'll lead you through the curriculum and then answer your specific questions.
The live calls feel just like being in a classroom. Except you don't have to worry about that one person who asks too many questions and likes to hear the sound of their own voice. Problem solved.
Can't make live call? No worries, you'll get the mp3 recording of the call the following day so you never fall behind.
You'll also be a part of our members only online forum where you can connect with me and your fellow Breakthroughers. By the way, I'm active on the forum every weekday.
You choose the focus of your Breakthrough
Although the Breakthrough is a group course you'll choose your own individual 8 week goal that's tailored to where you are and where you want to leap. Here are some examples from past Breakthrough students:
- Book your first television credit
- Transition from guest stars to series regulars
- Generate media coverage for your web-series
- Get out of debt
- Land an agent or manager
- Set up meetings with 10 producers you admire
- Earn an extra $5,000 of unexpected income
- Launch a one-woman show
- Move to the opposite coast
- Build a thriving relationship with your rep
- Create a fully-functioning home office
- Book the lead in a Sundance-caliber film
This is your Breakthrough. What will you choose?
Get Direct Coaching from Me
Just because we're not in the same room (or country!) doesn't mean
there's a disconnect.
After each call is finished. I stay on the line as long as it takes to get
all of your questions answered.
You're also able to post questions for me in our exclusive online
forum where I reply every single weekday.
And the weekly calls frequently include some on-the-spot hot-seat
coaching for the brave and the bold.
No other students get the same kind of access to me
for coaching like Breakthroughers do. I'm dedicated
to your success, and that's why making myself
available for your specific questions throughout The
Breakthrough is my top priority.
Join a Vibrant Community
When you join The Breakthrough, you ride the momentum of working in tandem with other dedicated, educated actors. The networking and support systems available are tremendous, and I love seeing Breakthroughers collaborate even after the program is over. These are your colleagues and professional peers; get acquainted.
In fact, the very first Breakthrough graduates formed their own mastermind group and still meet on the first Saturday of every month to support each other. And better yet, they now own a production company that has produced 2 plays and a short film, with a feature in the works.:
- Paco Lozano
Before the Breakthrough, I was afraid to ask for what I wanted, to share my goals with others, or to even put myself out there in any way. Dallas taught me how to be the agent I always wanted. In six weeks, I got 6 auditions, 3 meetings with producers and booked Shakespeare in the Park.
- Nancy Linehan Charles
Dallas helped me become responsible for my own career. So, I got off my tush and stopped whining. From there, I reconnected with casting directors and got new management. I had nine guest star auditions in ten days and booked three of them plus two national commercials. Run. Don’t walk to work with Dallas. The results are way better than whining.
- Ceasar Samayoa
Dallas helped me shift the way I approach my career. Weeks after I started to apply her techniques, I booked not one, but two Broadway shows. It’s amazing what can happen when you are empowered to focus and take charge.
This Breakthrough is for you if...
- You are serious about your career
