We'll work on material of your choosing or material provided by me. We'll find your "type" (very important in the business!) and then begin working on acing those kinds of roles. I'll also teach you the business side and how to "increase your value" as an actor.

I've been acting since I was a child, and in Los Angeles for over 10 years. I'm an award-winning actor and director with a true passion for storytelling. I've been in films on Amazon Prime (Something, House of Manson) on Television on the Lifetime Network (My Crazy Ex), and in many Theatre shows(Proof, Down the Road, Savage Love).

I have a BA in Acting from The Conservatory of Performing Arts at Point Park University, am a graduate of the two-year Meisner program at DBA studio, and have studied Audition Technique, Stanislavski, Scene Study, Improv, Perfecting Self-Tapes, and in a Master Class for years. As a filmmaker who cast, wrote, and directed the short 'There's No Word for Us', I also have experience on the other side ...

Derek
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.

Just wanted to update my review after taking a few lessons with Kristin. In addition to providing great yoga instruction, she's also been sharing these incredible explanations of how my body works (or isn't working right) that clearly come from a deep understanding of science and the structure of the human body. It is amazing to be able to both connect with the body and to understand how it works physiologically at the same time!

Kristin is incredibly skilled at Yoga - helping my form and deepening my understanding fo Yoga. I'm recommending her to everyone!

As an actor for 14 years who became an award-winning director and screenwriter, I have a particularly well-rounded perspective on acting. My belief is that anyone can act, if given the right tools, and I have a proven track record -- actors who work with me are presently booking major roles in film and television. My philosophy is that acting is about exploring yourself -- who you really are as a human being -- and having confidence in that unique individual's perspective on the character. We will also use my expertise on the other side of the camera to explore how to work with directors, as well as the writer's viewpoint on the larger story. I look forward to setting your talents loose on the world!

About Zach

My work as an acting coach speaks for itself. Just in the past few months alone, actors I work with have booked their first jobs as a recurring guest star in a primetime television series, a lead in a Lifetime movie, and a role on an upcoming Netflix drama series. This is in addition to working acto

"David Tom is a very professional and an awesome acting coach/teacher. He takes his time to really make you feel comfortable which makes the whole process feel natural and constructive. I would recommend his service and have to other actors I know regardless of their experience I think he has the resume and expertise to help any actor at any level. It is rare to find such a successful actor that is also teaching. His classes have helped me so much in my chosen field. Thanks so much David"
