Class Descriptions


Princeton, NJ Studio

Fall 2018

Acting for Film and Television ages 12-18

Our Acting for Film and Television workshop is an intense 12 week program that focuses on everything an actor needs to know to work truthfully on camera. We will work on finding your “eye line” use of the voice, camera angles, “bringing it” take after take, subtleties, emotion, physicality, audition technique and much more. The student will learn how to bring a truthful performance to the screen every time. We will work on monologues and scenes from films and television programs as well as commercial work. We will view the work together at the end of each class and discuss. Each student will be able to have access to their work at the conclusion of the class. You Do Not want to miss out on this workshop!

Acting Intensive for Adults 18 +

Our  Acting Intensive for adults is back and better than ever! This class will focus on how to Stop “Acting” and start living and behaving truthfully in the imaginary circumstances. Through proven acting exercises, exploration of improv as a tool for actors. Our techniques are based on a combination of Meisner, Hagen, Adler, and Spolin. The student will come to see acting from a totally different view and will, if consistent, committed, and focused, become the best actor that they can be. We will work on monologues, scene work, and will end the session with a presentation for an invited audience. 

Comedy Improv/Sketch Comedy for adults ages 18 +

Our  Comedy Improv/Sketch Comedy class has been a long time coming! Some interested students from the past have been very inquisitive about JWAS bringing its Comedy Improv class back to Princeton. We do so now with an added twist! We will work on all of the techniques for students to excel at the art on comedy improv and we will utilize these  skills to write and develop hilarious sketches suitable for performance, which we will have at the conclusion on the workshop. We will perform at the end of the session on December 12th. This class will be the beginning of our development of a new Comedy Improv/Sketch Comedy Troupe that will perform throughout the Central New Jersey area! This is an intense workshop and is only for those dedicated and committed to the journey. Space is extremely limited.

Intro to Acting ages 8-11

Our Intro to Acting workshop will be 12 once a week sessions designed to introduce the techniques of honest, truthful behavior on stage. This fun filled, energized class will allow the student to explore their own unique creativity in a safe, encouraging, non judgmental atmosphere. We will utilize basic acting techniques, improvisation, and character development.

Master Class: “Ultimate Acting” September 2018-May 2019

This season’s Master Class is titled “Ultimate Acting!” The student will become fully immersed in the world of being the very best they can be onstage. We utilize very advanced techniques to allow the student to experience what goes on in a professional “New York Style” acting workshop. This will not be for the faint of heart! While we always employ a completely safe, energized, judgement free atmosphere (anything else is totally counterproductive to excelling in the work), the student will be expected to commit to themselves, their fellow students, the workshop and rehearsals starting in January, (we will be performing an awesome full length play!), and ultimately to what it is and always will be about: THE WORK!


“All of our workshops at JW actors studio focus on the work; the process one needs to experience in order to be the best they can be. To be a really truthful, honest actor is to embark on a journey that is not completed in a short amount of time. It takes commitment, discipline, and the ability to give it your all. One needs to be able to unlock their inhibitions, be open to new challenges and to let themselves really tap into and trust their creativity. If one is not willing to commit to being the best they can be then perhaps we are not the right place for you. For those seeking to be professional actors or for individuals looking to use these skills in other areas of life, I guarantee you’ll benefit from allowing me to guide you along this path.”
