I believe the development and training of an artist is a special, sacred, and important act.

If you would like to find more truth, more humor, and more joy in your work as an actor or performing artist, then I would be privileged to help you along that journey!

As a teacher I have taught around the country at universities as a guest artist and faculty member, as well as with performing arts centers from coast to coast. As a practicing artist, I am continually researching new and updated methods and find this passion translates into my lessons with my students.

I believe in positive reinforcement and building upon a student's current skill set, rather than tearing an actor to pieces, in order to bring about the most effective results, all the while finding JOY in the work!

I have performed as an actor, singer, and musician Off-Broadway in New York, on many National tours, and at regional theatres all across the United States. I find this varied experience allows me to

I know of his abilities to teach, direct and to create a performance of the highest level. He's one of the best, as I know from having been taught by him. Try him out and judge for yourself. You'll be better for it in more ways than one.

Private Acting Teacher

For 43 years, since 1975, I have pioneered the use of Gestalt Techniques of awareness training, dream work and work on personal relationships as a tool to supplement traditional methods of teaching performers: actors, singers, dancers. this approach interlocks especially well with the Michael Chekhov and Brechtian styles of performing.

As a performer you cannot express well actions which you cannot deal with in your own life, so filling these holes in your own functioning is half the job of releasing your artistic creativity. In this way you do not need to resort to cliches and gimmicks to fool your audience. all of you is there for real, authentic. Your search for truth is also your goal as an artist.

About Franklyn

I am a med school dropout who decided one day not to keep fighting his creativity demon. Next came 6 years of Musical Theater training at Julliard (2 years), Columbia (2years, ma degree), Indiana school of music (2 years), and one year of social work training at Pittsburgh, 1970-1980 I spent 10 yea

I worked with Franklyn from 1975-76. His Gestalt Theater workshop helped me to learn about myself, gain self-confidence, work with others, and discover and sharpen my skills.
David
Working with Franklyn is being with a true master of a field. Not only was the process well organized, done pragmatically, and attention paid to the details, but also Franklyn taught his trade as he took you along his particular Gestalt influenced method. He is well versed and highly skilled in helping actors and people reach their potential. I recommend him for his vast knowledge, dedication, and hard work in making a final product, the product is a better you! Thank you Franklyn!

I am an introvert by nature . It is hard for me some times to express my feelings openly . Franklyn helped me to open up , to trust my self more ! He showed me the way to express my self , he showed me some actin techniques , we did some weird staff like expressive body movement and other ,weird for the guy who never took acting before , but i had a great joy , and learned some wisdom from this knowledgeable and passionate Teacher ! Thank you Franklyn !

As your coach, we will patiently and persistently discover the methods that enable your absolute best work. From Linklater voice work, to Mask exercises, to silly vocal exercises, we will develop a system that works for you. Best of all: we'll have a blast doing it.

I came to Jennie with basically 0 acting experience and wow am I glad I went to Jennie. She is the most kind, compassionate and supportive instructor out there. Her knowledge was vast and whether you want to get into film, Tv, theater or just wanna get out of your shell, Jennie is the instructor for you.

She helped me every step of the way to hone my craft, work on monologues, mock audition and so much more. Jennie’s way of teaching makes you think differently and she truly brings out the best side of you. Plus Jennie is so supportive going at my speed giving constructive feed back and making me feel great about my progress.

Lastly, Jennie was understanding of my time and worked around my schedule as well as the “homework” or “things to work on” she gave. Jennie was flexible and the Zoom calls worked incredibly well during this pandemic. Every day I would get off of our call with a smile on my face feeling accomplished!

Overall I would say Jennie was helpful, knowledgeable and a great instructor. I would highly recommend her for anyone who is looking to start acting and have no idea where to begin.

My daughter loved the session. Thank you!
Chad S.
A truly gifted instructor. I came to Jennie with zero acting experience. She was able to patiently and carefully guide me to focus on my scene and most importantly how to RELAX and let the scene flow. Her knowledge of acting techniques and tips is unparalleled. She teaches you how to look at the scene as a whole and truly understand what your character is feeling. I highly recommend Jennie to anyone who is interested in learning more about acting.

"I have studied with a dozen acting teachers over the years. Darren Dowler is not only the most knowledgeable acting coach I’ve ever had, but he has a talent for teaching. And he’s not just a coach. He’s a full-time performer, director and filmmaker out in the field doing it, booking the roles, and acting. He has so much real world experience to draw from it’s obvious why he’s one of the most sought after coaches in the business. You’ll learn more than one lesson from him then a whole summer with another coach. I just saw him in the movie Palau in which he plays the Reverend Billy Graham. He was amazing.

And- he’s great with kids!"
