The Mark Cuban Heroes Basketball Center is about more than jump shots and rebounds. Besides its co-ed fitness and enrichment programs, it also offers big assists to people in Southern Dallas—everything from internships to career readiness training to leadership programs and more.
This Saturday, January 28, the center will host an Open Model and Talent Call for models, actors, singers and dancers ages 16 to 50. The talent call is open to the public and will be held at the center at 1800 Bonnie View Road
Program began in 2018, helping to launch successful careers
The center’s open call program first launched in 2018, and has helped launch numerous North Texans’ modeling and entertainment careers, including 22-year-old Osayande Foster, who found success as a model with the Kim Dawson Agency and several other national agencies. He’s currently shooting a Nike ad. Another Kim Dawson model is making “thousands of dollars per shoot,” while another model who went through the program is currently working with singer Gwen Stefani, according to the center.
The open call is being hosted by Willie Johnson of Dallas-based J3 Productions, a fashion show production and modeling management company whose mission is “to find the diamond in the rough and make him or her shine.”
People chosen at the open call will spend six weeks working with Johnson and will receive professional head shots and other support. J3 Productions will serve as the “mother agency,” with Johnson introducing the individuals to other regional and national agencies.
Open call requirements
Female models should be 5’7” to 6 feet tall. Male models should be 5’11” to 6’3”. Singers and dancers should bring music on a flash drive. Singers may be asked to sing for 30 seconds, and dancers may be asked to perform a 45-second routine. Actors may be asked to do a cold read.
Registration is from 10:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday, with live auditions from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
