Private Theater 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.

In Theatre Acting, we'll explore acting for the stage, and how best to use the four tools, Voice, Face, Body, and Mind, for performance in front of a live audience.

We'll study gesture, vocal expressiveness, movement, face acting, and physical acting for the stage.

We'll study representational theatre and presentational theatre, how they differ, and how to perform in each.

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.
Laura M.
There aren’t enough good words to say about acting coach, Dennis Johnson, of Rollicking Productions. Personally, I have had the pleasure of working with Dennis for 5 years and his commitment, knowledge and ability to guide his students to top performance levels in the acting world is unbelievable. With Dennis’ help I was able to win for the State of NH two years in a row for the nationwide Poetry Out Loud competition, land several lead roles in community theater, gain my own teaching experience in his acting workshops, etc., but more importantly I gained a whole new level of confidence that I didn’t have before. Working with Dennis was one of the best decisions I've made and the skills that I learned from him still compliment everything I do today.

Hello!

Writer / Director
Based in LA/NY
Haitian American
Graduate of Bristol Old Vic Theatre School

I love actors and I love stories. I enjoy working in easeful environments so my aim is to create that space for you so you can be free.

Each session will include:
• A read of the scene(s)
• I'll pose questions to you (as the character) in the story
• We'll run through the feelings/emotions of the scene from your character POV
• A Fun-Through

Homework for you:
Daydream about your life as the character in the story

You'll love working with me if quick turn-around self tapes give you anxiety and you want a reader who can calm you down.

The way I like to work on stories is simple. Easeful.

I am trained in Meisner, so I'm happy to play a little here with you.

Looking forward to meeting you.

Daphne
