Private Improv Acting Teacher

I teach all kinds of acting, and have for over 40 years, but I specialize in stage acting, on-camera acting, acting for the face, voice acting, comedic acting, physical acting, improv, script analysis, monologues, audition prep, audition videos and voice over auditions.

For Improv Acting we'll cover the elements of successful improvisation.

We'll use exercises and games to develop your expression, imagination, spontaneity, creativity, solo work, and work with an ensemble.

We'll create scenes, characters, and scenarios, and develop them into performance pieces.

We'll explore improv as actor training, rehearsal technique, scene study, character development, and professional entertainment, including interactive theatre, immersive theatre, historical improvised theatre. We'll see how to use improvisation in film, television, and onstage.

We'll study verbal improvisation, physical improvisation, improvised pantomime, and the improvised use of props.

And much more. Our improv ...

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.

I am a working actor and love the craft of acting. Everything about it. My respect and enthusiasm will be the hallmarks of my lessons. I find acting a deeply gratifying look at authentic behavior of ourselves and the world around us. I teach thru a basic Meisner approach with actual on-set and on-stage experience, all the tips of the trade, for working and booking. Coaching is also available.

When it comes to Improv Acting, students will play tons of games to help develop the ability to improv quickly. We spend the majority of the time working on ways that students will be put into a scenario: stunt doubles, super hero's, occupations, family dynamics, animals, food, famous media and literature characters. We will focus on the extremes of these characters in the scenes. Students love to improv, as a way to develop confidence, stage presence, which will help with any type of acting. Improv is one of my many favorites with acting students. Always help students feel successful. Consider acting lessons and specifically improv acting as an option.

Great learning process thanks!
Britney Keck
Mr. Andrew is kind, funny and engaging.

My son (6) always has the best time at lesson and wants to know immediately when he gets to go back.

Our son has a lot on his plate and watching him have something that's just his that he is happy to do and enjoys this has been such a bright spot for our whole family.

- and Mr. Andrew is in direct correlation to that.

I recommend Mr. Andrew to anyone who is looking for a teacher who is kind, funny, engaging, and wants to help you succeed and gives you opportunities to use the skills you have learned.

Fun again,....you make it a lot of fun thank you

Private Improv Acting Teacher

I am a trained character performer who studied at a wide variety of performance schools. These include The Second City, SF Comedy College, Upright Citizens Brigade, and Killing My Lobster. I was the youngest student to ever reach the advanced course at The Groundlings School of Sketch Comedy. After studying character comedy I began producing videos. This led to garnering over 750,000 followers on Vine, and over 6 million views on Youtube for my variety of one-of-a-kind characters.

I also have extensive work in television, stage, and immersive theatre. I directed, wrote, and starred in a series called Un Amor along with decorated actors such as Sean Astin, Seth Green, Tara Strong, E.G. Daily, Nyambi Nyambi, and Greg Cipes. I conceived a comedy troupe alongside actor Finn Wolfhard from Netflix’s Stranger Things and It, producing an audio sketch comedy album. I specialize in bringing out the best in each and every person who has a dream of performing.

I believe there is talent ...

Joe is a fantastic teacher. I felt instantly comfortable and open when we started working on my character studies. When he started breaking down the nuances and methods to get into character, I honestly felt like I unlocked something special, like a secret acting vault. I left feeling like my acting abilities were taken to the next level. His classes are super personalized and he helped me find my strengths and what makes me unique as a performer. I would totally recommend Joe!

I have been teaching and coaching actors for over 20 years. My students work professionally on stage, TV and film. Within the first few lessons, you will understand how to create a character. Soon, you will have the skills to book a role. I specialize in method acting, but draw upon my experience at The Second City (improvisation) in Chicago and other training I have had. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels; I can't wait to meet you!
