Class Descriptions


Pennington, NJ Studio

Winter 2020

Acting Basics Class for Children ages 6-9

Our Acting Basics class is a fun, energized class that allows the young performer a safe, creative environment to just fully be themselves as they explore the world of the imaginary. The student will learn basic acting techniques that will allow them to have a great time as they explore characters and their creativity. We will have a presentation for parents at the conclusion!

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. In addition to our work on monologues and scenes from films and television programs as well as commercial work, the students will write their own short film based on improvised ideas, which we will film. 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/Improv ages 10-15 January-May 2020

Our Acting/Improv class for people ages 10-15 is a workshop designed to build on the basics of acting and allows for growth in the work. The actor will learn what it means to “bring yourself to the character.” We stress the idea that the characters that we play are to be truthfully brought alive. This enhances the process of an actor finding freedom and truth in their work, which allows an audience to be fully engaged in the story. We will have a performance in May. 

 Ultimate Acting January-May 2020

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 (We will be performing a series of short plays in May.) , and ultimately to what it is and always will be about: THE WORK!


Comedy Improv

Our Comedy Improv Class is a Fun, Energized class that brings out the best in everyone. We explore the world of Comedy Improv in a fully safe, non judgmental, just be yourself atmosphere. We explore several improv games and exercises, learning to work Together. Our Yes, And approach allows students to learn what it means to truly look out for their partner and to know that we all have each other’s back. You will have a Great Time while you learn what it means to fully Let Go, and Let it Happen! Everyone’s “fear of Improv” is usually history by the end of the first class. This class helps build characters, confidence, camaraderie, listening skills, creativity, all while having the time of your life! 



Our  Acting/Improv class for adults will focus on combining improvisational theater with proven acting techniques. We are all about the complete actor. One  who will learn what it takes to be fully truthful in the imaginary circumstances. This combined with our improv training will allow the student to be fully free in their approach to character development and to be completely serving the story while learning to make their partner look good while doing so. 

Morning Acting/Improv Class for Adults 

This 12 session program is for anyone seeking to try something new or for those looking to return to the world of theater after working in other careers. As always we focus on techniques that will lead the actor to a fully truthful/honest performance. We will incorporate monologue and scene study along with improvisation as a tool to explore what could be. A fun, energized class that will make your day!


“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.”
