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 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.

Private Theater Acting Teacher

Hi and Welcome! In addition to holding a Masters Degree in Acting from New York University, I have been a professional working actor for over 30 years and have been fortunate to work on Broadway, Off-Broadway, in television and film. I teach Acting to all ages and skill levels, as well as Singing Performance (focuses on the 'story" of the song, not technique). Whether you are pursuing acting as a profession or not, the benefits of theater training can be profound on many levels. We humans love to play. We love stories. I encourage fellow actors to be confident, joyful, and fearless with their creativity. I teach emotional literacy, empathy, and the value of failing well and often. I inspire actors to build their own "arsenal" of tools that will serve you throughout your creative life. For professionals, I am happy to work on audition material, monologues, and scenes. For young artists, I am thrilled to work on auditions for BFA programs, scholarships, summer intensives, and more.

Becca
John is such a great coach and teacher! He coached me for my upcoming play. John created such a safe environment, asked so many thought provoking questions, challenged me, provided innovative ideas, and gave me great insight into my character development. He is extremely professional, always very prepared for our sessions, and gives very helpful feedback. He always goes above and beyond. It is very evident that he is so passionate about our work and about helping me grow. I always feel so comfortable and encouraged in our coachings. I would absolutely recommend John as an acting coach and teacher!

John recently helped me with a zoom audition. He guided me to choices that were more nuanced and more honest. I got a callback! The director loved the audition and I loved working with John. Very wise and patient.

"To be honest I've never acted a day in my life before. Tamika was absolutely wonderful in helping me calm my (obvuously) nervous self, and worked with what I naturally brought to the stage and highlighted my own attributes. By the time I had opening night, I felt more comfortable than presenting to a bunch of investors (which is my day job). Thank you again Tamika, for really helping me develop skills and traits for the acting stage even I didn't know I had in me! I loom forward to working with you again soon!"

Rebecca really pulls you into part of the production by being open to your ideas about the character and challenges you to really owen your craft on the stage and your professionalism behind and off the stage. She truly is a developer and loves to see individuals grow. I cannot recommend her enough."
