Steven really helped my get my work to "industry-level". My callback ratio is thru the roof, and I got signed with an agency after only a few months of working with him.
David
While he isn't available very much, I always try to coach with Stephen for challenging projects. He always has good ideas for how to make my scenes more interesting or funny.
Allison
Stephen is the best! He was able to turn sides I had for a short four line audition for an episodic into a taped audition that booked me the job. I try to book him for every important audition I have.

I not only am seen as a teacher, but as a mentor as well. The one-on-one relationship that is built between my students and I is priority. I want my students to know that it is 100% okay to try something new and play with it, therefore, I provide a safe and encouraging environment.

It is important to me that my students get the most out of their training. I am a trained and working actor with a BFA in acting for both stage and screen. So whichever you are looking to train in, I can coach you in one or both areas.

Experience: I have directed and stage managed plays and musicals, have had previous experience teaching acting classes, and have been a camp counselor for youth acting camps.

I promise we will have a fun time while working hard!

About Jace

I am a working actor and musician in the LA area. I graduated from Azusa Pacific University with my BFA in acting for the stage and screen. My background is in musical theater and stage acting. I recently have started film acting the last couple of years and have been in short films since. I have

My daughter took lessons from her a while back. She was simply wonderful. My daughter could not stop talking about how much fun she had working with Jace. She knows lots about who to go to for headshots and how to build a resume as well. I’m so grateful she was able to help my daughter pursue what she loves.
Clara
Having graduated in rigorous BFA acting for stage and screen program , and working in Los Angeles as an actor Jace has a wealth of knowledge about acting as well as the film industry. With her being a working actor she offered me so much insight about what you need to do for an audition as well as how to tweak my monologue to give it more layers. She goes with you step by step and makes you feel confident and safe. She works with you at your level and she made me feel confident going into my audition and self tapes. Seriously, she is so great!

In my class we will dig deep into the audition process. Auditioning is a craft in itself, it's not just about reading words off of a paper. Auditioning is about confidence and personality.

We will start with some acting/improv exercises, followed by script read throughs and then character development. We will dig deep into each scene.

We will then go into scenes and treat this like a real audition. After following audition protocol (which I will teach), I will give notes/feedback and we will work the scene one last time. We will end with a Q&A session where the students can ask questions about anything related to the business. Some examples might be: working on set, headshots, agents, etc.

I will send over age appropriate sides/scenes to each student in advance, if you have your own scene or monologue we can work that instead.

This class is going to be a BLAST and I can't wait to work with you all!

Mandi taught my daughter and her friend a couple of cheers as I wanted to see if they would be interested in trying out for their school squad soon. They loved their session so much they asked to take more lessons with Mandi and said they were excited to try out for thier squad!
Veronica
I worked with Mandi on a few scenes I had to prepare for an audition. She helped me see things in the character and writing that I would have never noticed. Our session was fun and I felt more than ready for my audition by the end of class. I will be contacting Mandi again soon so I can stay on top of my craft!
Caitlin
Mandi helped my daughter with her cheer and dance routine for her school try outs. My daughter had a ton of fun working with Mandi and learned a lot from her. Mandi helped her perfect her routines and gave her major pointers on her cheer and my daughter MADE THE TEAM! Thanks Mandi!
