Intro to Acting

This workshop is for students ages 7-10 who are just learning about acting. We will focus on stretching the imagination and improvisation as a tool to help develop truth and spontaneity. We will learn how to do monologues and short scenes and we will have a lot of fun doing it!

Acting/Improvisation for Adults 

Our Acting/Improvisation Class for adults is for students who have little to some experience in the theater. We will raise the bar a bit higher in this class as we develop stronger technique through advanced improvisation exercises/games, increased focus on Character Development, Sensory work, Emotional Recall, Working with Activity, Substitution, Relationships, Obstacles, Proper Rehearsal Technique, and much more! 

Acting for Film and Television

Our Acting for Film and Television workshop is an intense 10 week program that focuses on everything an actor needs to know to work truthfully on camera. We will work on finding your “eye line” use of the voice, camera angles, “bringing it” take after take, subtleties, emotion, physicality and much more. The student will learn how to bring a truthful performance to the screen every time. We will work on monologues and scenes from films and television programs as well as commercial work. We will view the work together at the end of each class and discuss. Each student will be able to have access to their work at the conclusion of the class. You Do Not want to miss out on this workshop!


Comedy Improv/Sketch Comedy for adults ages 18 +

Our New Comedy Improv/Sketch Comedy class has been a long time coming! Some interested students from the past have been very inquisitive about JWAS bringing its Comedy Improv class back to Princeton. We do so now with an added twist! We will work on all of the techniques for students to excel at the art on comedy improv and we will utilize these  skills to write and develop hilarious sketches suitable for performance. Which we will do at the conclusion on the workshop. We will perform at the Legendary “Catch a Rising Star” in Princeton in April! This class will be the beginning of our development of a new Comedy Improv/Sketch Comedy Troupe tha will perform throughout the Central New Jersey area! This is an intense workshop and is only for those dedicated and committed to the journey. Space is extremely limited.


“All of our workshops at JW actors studio focus on the work; the process one needs to experience in order to be the best they can be. To be a really truthful, honest actor is to embark on a journey that is not completed in a short amount of time. It takes commitment, discipline, and the ability to give it your all. One needs to be able to unlock their inhibitions, be open to new challenges and to let themselves really tap into and trust their creativity. If one is not willing to commit to being the best they can be then perhaps we are not the right place for you. For those seeking to be professional actors or for individuals looking to use these skills in other areas of life, I guarantee you’ll benefit from allowing me to guide you along this path.”
