We'll work on material of your choosing or material provided by me. We'll find your "type" (very important in the business!) and then begin working on acing those kinds of roles. I'll also teach you the business side and how to "increase your value" as an actor.

I've been acting since I was a child, and in Los Angeles for over 10 years. I'm an award-winning actor and director with a true passion for storytelling. I've been in films on Amazon Prime (Something, House of Manson) on Television on the Lifetime Network (My Crazy Ex), and in many Theatre shows(Proof, Down the Road, Savage Love).

I have a BA in Acting from The Conservatory of Performing Arts at Point Park University, am a graduate of the two-year Meisner program at DBA studio, and have studied Audition Technique, Stanislavski, Scene Study, Improv, Perfecting Self-Tapes, and in a Master Class for years. As a filmmaker who cast, wrote, and directed the short 'There's No Word for Us', I also have experience on the other side ...

I love working with Jane for so many reasons, not only is she, herself an incredible actress but her education and knowledge of the craft sets her apart from so many other coaches. She is attentive, supportive, and we always have fun in our sessions. Whether you’re preparing for an audition, diving deep into a role, or just want to sharpen your acting skills, I definitely recommend working Jane! She’s made me a better actress and I couldn’t be more grateful.
Monica
I love Jane! What a fabulous coach. I felt supported through the process of working on my audition and she offers spot on insight to the scene. I want more auditions just for the excuse to work with her more, I can't wait for our next session together. Couldn't recommend her more!

Dennis has been a mentor and friend now for nearly 20 years. He is a knowledgeable and passionate advocate for the arts who gives his all to each student. Working with him is always challenging and fun.
Elizabeth
Dennis Johnson is extremely passionate and knowledgable about every topic relating to acting and voiceovers. His classes are friendly, warm, funny, inviting and are always very positive. Although his classes may be challenging, he focusses on preparing his students for the real world and is passionate about putting his student's best foot forward. A few things he covers in classes are improvisation, analyzing monologues and analyzing film. He is reliable and flexible with busy schedules and makes an effort to teach life lessons as well. I feel extremely lucky to have found him and to have access to his classes and film and voice over editing skills. He is a gem.
Christine
Working with Dennis has been incredibly beneficial to my growth as an actor. His ability to dissect a scene, work through the nuances of the character, and the sub-text and communicate this on camera with techniques that set you above the amateur actor, has helped me tremendously and opened up not only opportunities but my confidence as well. Dennis approaches the actor as a whole and understands there are parts to this whole and each part—the body, the speech, the mind—is just as important as the next. I wouldn't be the actor I am today if it weren't for Dennis.

Carole D’Andrea is an extraordinary teacher, human, and guide. Her kindness, generosity, and knowledge are invaluable. Her dedication to each artist’s personal process is laced with warmth and boundless support. She is truly a beacon.
Susannah
Carole is a shining light in my creative life as an actress/singer and I recommend her highly. Class begins with an inspirational quote and group check-in which encourages an immediate vulnerability and tenderness in the work that ensues. She is funny and dear, and a most humble music theatre icon. She sows the seeds of depth, compassion, and discipline in the most beautifully humane way! Don't miss an opportunity to work with Carole.

I have worked as a professional actress for over 40 years and studied when many different teachers throughout the years . Carole is one of the best by far . Carole creates such a support and loving environment that is vital for an artist to grow . Carole’s insight and experience is priceless. She is musical theater legend .
