Read the other reviews. These are real, reasonable, normal, people dedicated to the craft of acting. This class is not for those who seek some kind of superficial class with easy secrets about acting (as if there could be such a thing). Wayne is deeply committed to the craft of acting, and has decades of experience to draw upon for his instruction.

Ive been taking Waynes class for six months and have seen as my classmates and I have grown through Waynes excellent Meisner instruction. Meisner is difficult, interior work, having to do with the wrangling of the psyche to become present to and available to real emotions like anger and painthis requires delicacy, care, forthrightness and professionalism, which Wayne exemplifies every class.

Because of the difficult nature of the commitment, the class tends to be self-selecting, in a good way. Those who arent interested or cut out for the work seem to just drop off, while committed students remain. For relatively low price of $175 per four sessions (or five, during such months as have five weeks), Wayne guides his students through their work, meeting each students efforts directly and honestly.

I have been in Los Angeles for three years now and have tried out a few different acting classes. I can honestly say that Wayne Dvorak's Meisner class has been the best. The class is very fun and also I have never been more challenged in acting which makes it even more satisfying. It is also the cheapest class I have been in (only $175/month!). Wayne has been in the industry for a long time and is always willing to share advice with you. From head shots to agents, Wayne has a great deal of knowledge. He genuinely cares about his students and their growth as actors. The classes are usually on the smaller side (mine has 10) which makes it so that every student gets Wayne's upmost attention every class. You work every class and are expected to rehearse outside of class with a partner twice a week. This class is a big commitment but trust me you will quickly see results in your acting. I feel so much more confident in myself after joining this class and can't wait to see how much more I improve over the course of this 2 year program. If you are looking to become a serious actor I highly recommend this class.

I audited a few different teachers, but felt a natural connection with Wayne. He has a transparent and direct teaching style, which made me feel at ease. The class is structured into three different years that build upon each other with breaks in December and August to allow the material to sink in. With the additional partner rehearsals each week, the class feels very thorough and academic.

Wayne holds the class to very high standards and expects everyone to put in the effort. Overall, I think finding a teacher that you have a connection with is more important than anything and I personally really like Wayne. Hes authentic, intelligent, and humorous. I also really like the Meisner focus of the program theres an emphasis on being naturally yourself and creating genuine connections with the other actors.

If youre looking for a new class and dont know where to start, his studio is perfect. I was very nervous my first few classes, but after six months I feel like Ive made some really great new friends and am digging deeper into the complex craft of acting.

I am halfway through the two year Meisner Technique Class with Wayne Dvorak. The first few months were challenging because I constantly felt I did not know what I was doing. I always viewed acting as an endeavor based upon talent, but Mr. Dvorak is teaching us that it is, in fact, a craft based on technique which can be improved upon and perfected with dedicated practice.

The small class size ensures that each one of us presents work in every class. We are also required to meet with classmates at least twice each week to rehearse exercises and scenes.

Mr. Dvorak is very supportive. He guides us in perfecting the craft and advises us on successful audition techniques and the mysterious workings of the entertainment industry.

I am excited to continue my studies with Mr. Dvorak. I advise anyone who is serious about learning to be an actor and ready to put in the work to come to classes at the Wayne Dvorak Acting Studio. I hope to see you there!

I was searching for an acting class that teaches the Meisner Technique and all of my internet searches included The Wayne Dvorak Acting Studio among the top results. I audited Mr Dvoraks class and I was immediately struck by his calm demeanor and avuncular charm. As the class continued, it became obvious that Wayne Dvorak really knows his craft! I observed closely as he dissected the work of his students and gave them detailed and constructive criticism of their performances. I was hooked :-).

As I have continued my studies with Mr Dvorak, I am continually impressed by his keen insight and vast store of knowledge concerning The Industry. He not only acts as our acting coach, he provides us with information and advice on head shots, auditions, casting directors, and professional behavior. Mr Dvorak takes his job seriously and encourages us to do the same; to apply ourselves diligently toward the goal of becoming working actors.

Mt Dvoraks approach combines the classical approach of his 50 years in the industry with the realities of contemporary Hollywood in short, hard work and dedication never go out of style and, there are roles available for well-trained actors of all physical types. The small class size (12 max) enables him to give detailed notes on our performances and ensures that each and every student gets the attention he/she deserves.

I feel lucky to have found the Wayne Dvorak Acting studio and I wholeheartedly recommend all aspiring actors to study here with the following caveat: You must be prepared to work hard, act like a professional, and dig deep within yourself to open up and find the reality in your performance!"

I'm so happy that I decided to take Wayne Dvorak's Meisner program. I came into this program about 7 months ago having some experience acting but no formal training. In the past I felt like I'd always been relying on basic instincts and an incoherent hodgepodge of tips that I had received from various teachers/directors over time, without really having a strong technical base to build on or a clear idea of who I was as an actor. Wayne has changed all of that for me not only through the Meisner training but through his thoughtful, specific, personal feedback. Wayne really takes the time to focus on and learn about each of his students (he keeps his classes small) in order help each of us to grow into ourselves as actors. He doesn't sugar coat anything, and you can expect to get very clear, honest, useful notes with no BS. This is also reflected in the studio's environment where you are challenged to deeply connect with your emotional life when you are acting and push yourself to be totally honest with yourself and your scene partner. Wayne does a great job of showing you how the Meisner exercises help you to be more present and real and how to apply the technique to scripted work. When doing scenework, he always chooses interesting, challenging scenes and puts a lot of thought into choosing roles that suit the students in the class and will push them into new areas. Wayne also has a lot of experience with the industry, having been a working actor himself, and was always willing to talk after class whenever I've sought career advice. But on top of all that, Wayne is just a great guy to be around. I think anyone who is serious about being an actor and is willing to put in the work every week (both in class and outside it in rehearsals), regardless of what their experience level is, will get a lot out of this class and will come out of it a better actor.

I have been a member of the Wayne Dvorak Acting Studio for over 7 months now. I can honestly say that this class has been more than worthwhile for me as an actress in Los Angeles! In the short seven months of meeting weekly with my class, Wayne has helped me open my emotional expression and really become attune to my emotions and reactions to a scene partner or the dialogue of a scene.

This was my first real experience with Meisner training, and I have a feeling that a huge part of why I love it is because of Wayne's intuitive way of teaching. He has a way of reading people that really comes in handy because he will help you uncover your true behavior and reactions, so that you as an actor can more easily access your emotions.

Class sizes are very small so it's definitely not like a classroom, it's like getting together weekly to rehearse with your friends! Highly recommend auditing this class if you are looking to join a new acting class.

A solid and affordable Meisner program!

I just completed month six of the two year Meisner training program at the Wayne Dvorak Acting Studio. Im absolutely loving it! Waynes classes are very small (my class only has 10 people) so theres plenty of time for him to focus on each individual and everyone goes up every single week. We meet once a week for about 3-4 hours and outside of class were required to rehearse with a partner at least twice a week for a minimum of an hour each rehearsal. We also mix scene work in after the first couple of months and then every other month from there. Wayne chooses high quality/ challenging scenes for us to work on from great contemporary plays and films and he has you work on them until he believes youve really gotten out of them what you could. He also teaches us some useful voice exercises to use outside of class! Wayne is a very kind person and skilled acting teacher. Hes straightforward and professional in his critiques and the dude is really funny. He helps us pinpoint and work on any of our bad acting habits until were relaxed and working from our true selves.

So far the class has helped me have even stronger connections to my scene partners. I originally came to the class to open myself up more emotionally, specifically in expressing grief. I feel like Ive made great progress there so far! The first year focuses more on acting from who you are as a person. The second year focuses on character acting and impediments, which Im really looking forward to!

Be prepared to work because you can really only improve if you get the rehearsal time in and actually challenge yourself inside and outside of class. I appreciate that Wayne doesnt hold our hands through this process and expects us to hold ourselves accountable. On top of all of this, his class is one of the most affordable ongoing classes Ive seen here in Los Angeles. I think Waynes class is wonderful and I do believe that everyone, even non-actors, should take a Meisner class. Itll make you a better listener at the very least, youll be able to read people better, and youll be prepared to execute complex feelings that are required of actors who want to have careers.

The best Meisner teacher in LA! I started studying with Wayne over a year ago and my acting had improved tremendously. The groups are small (about 8 students) and Wayne takes personal approach and takes his time analyzing each one of us in class. I've had acting training beforehand but I was really "acting" and pre-thinking everything on stage. Through level exercises and scenes, Wayne has helped me to become real, connect with my partner, connect with my emotional self and live the fantasy. This training is for actors who are serious about their craft only! Good luck :)

This is my first acting class outside of college. I didn't know what to expect, or how experienced I needed to be. Wayne Dvorak made me feel comfortable from day one, and the confidence just built from there. He provides so much insight, not just within the Meisner technique, but in the acting industry overall. He definitely knows how to get you to where you want to be, you just need to be committed to pushing yourself there as well. The Meisner technique takes so much out of you emotionally and mentally, but Wayne provides step by step courses to help you slowly built up this demand. He also takes the time during class to help you individually if you have any kind struggle. You can't find that too often. Don't waste any more time and come check it out!

I've been a student of Wayne's for a year now, and I recommend him to anyone looking for serious development as an actor. Bottom line, Wayne knows what he's doing. He's been around this business for a while, and not only knows what makes an actor skillful/bookable, but also how to make it through your life as an actor. When I came to LA, I was looking for foundational training-- something to commit to that would help me feel prepared and at the top of my game. I'm so glad I found Wayne's studio. He has some of the smallest class sizes in all of LA, and really, really spends the time making sure each student is progressing every single class. Meisner is all about emotional readiness and connecting to your partner and knowing how to read text-- you have to put in the work, and he will make sure you do, but it's more than worth it.

He looks at each of his students as personal projects. His commitment comes through in the individual time he takes with each of us. Fine tuning every step of the way and always revisiting ideas until they are understood and taken in. This is the real thing and it gets deep. If you want to up your acting game, this is the way to go.

BEST ACTING TEACHER IN LA!
I register with 9 other acting studios and observed over 20 acting studios in LA until I finally found Wayne. Wayne will make you work on scenes that are 10 to 20 minutes long and he will spend one hour per scene. He will make you find your different feelings with Meisner. The classes are usually less than 10 people and the quality is outstanding. Also, he has a very low tuition. What I love the most is that Wayne will not work with Actors who are not serious and disciplined.
Go check it out!

Mr. Dvorak is definitely one of the best acting teachers I have ever had. He has so much to offer in his class and I can assure that anyone who takes his class will be satisfied with their results. He is an incredible mentor and will give you advice on just about anything you need. Wayne is a patient person and he will give you his undivided attention and take the time to make sure you understand the class and continue to progess. I have never been able to understand the meaning of connecting with other people until I joined this class. Wayne offers this unique ability to quickly connect with another person at an intimate level. Wayne has not only helped me develop my skills as an aspiring actor, but has also enlightened me with some of the most valuable lessons in life; staying true to yourself. His training has helped me create a relationship with my emotions and has given me the knowledge on how to discipline them for the future. The techniques that he offers will show you how to display genuine emotions and polish your skills as an actor. If you are looking for a mentor who can teach you how to act professionally and give you valuable advice that will help you in your acting career, Wayne's your man.

I moved to LA from NYC in April. Looking for an acting class (or more specifically, a Meisner class) to continue my studies, I came across the Wayne Dvorak Studio. I like studying with Wayne because I've improved (and continue to improve), becoming more grounded and real in my acting work. My classmates range from early-career professionals, working in and auditioning for national commercials, regional theatre, and a variety of TV shows to very new actors (for a few of them, this is the first acting class they've ever taken). In the few months I've been in the class, everyone has improved loads, and I improve by working with actors both more and less experienced than myself. Also, as the class is kept small, we all get to work multiple times per evening.

It reminds me a bit of high school, of this program called BFS. Athletes of all sports and skill levels trained year-round to get "bigger, faster, and stronger." Wayne's class is like BFS, except replace "athletes" with "actors" and "bigger, faster, and stronger" with "more grounded and real, able to go deeper, and more creative in your preparation and your approach to your work."

My classmates range from early-career professionals, working in and auditioning for national commercials, regional theatre, and a variety of TV shows to very new actors (for a few of them, this is the first acting class they've ever taken). In the few months I've been in the class, everyone has improved loads, and I improve by working with actors both more and less experienced than myself. Also, as the class is kept small, we all get to work multiple times per evening.

It reminds me a bit of high school, of this program called BFS. Athletes of all sports and skill levels trained year-round to get "bigger, faster, and stronger." Wayne's class is like BFS, except replace "athletes" with "actors" and "bigger, faster, and stronger" with "more grounded and real, able to go deeper, and more creative in your preparation and your approach to your work."

Wayne is an exceptional acting instructor. He knows how to critique yet stay stay positive, and he is very knowledgeable about acting technique since he's been around for so long. He is one of the few acting coaches that will help you with all aspects of your career, not just technique. From finding an agent, to headshots, to auditions, to what happens when you're on set, ...whatever question you have he will have an answer or resource for you.

Meisner technique has done wonders for my acting and my daily life. Taking Waynes class has improved my understanding of myself and acting tremendously...which is really, invaluable. It's not like the many other studios around the town where they promises you stardom in a short period of time. Don't buy that snake oil. Every night of his class is a grind, but you come out of it with a feeling of completion and growth week after week. If you put in the work and effort, you'll get something out of his class every single week. The Meisner technique will help you communicate with other actors/directors and understand how emotions work along with your scene and how to get the most out of every scene. It helps give you direction through preparation. There is really so much more to it than just a review, so the best thing to do is audit his class!

You get more than your moneys worth with this Meisner training! Mr. Wayne clearly enjoys what he is doing and his infectious spirit is contagious throughout his training. Whether you have never taken a Meisner training before or if you just want to refresh your skills you will definitely benefit from this training. The small class sizes are ideal for an intimate experience and creates a comfortable learning environment. The only way you wont grow is if you dont do the workso you gotta do the work! This Meisner training has improved my skill level in the craft that I love and I also use aspects of it to navigate through my daily life (a benefit that was never expected). Dont just take my word for itcontact Mr. Wayne to set up an audit of one of his classes and judge for yourself. You will not be disappointed.

Words cannot describe how incredible going through the Meisner training with Wayne is! His class pushes you to leave your comfort box and allow yourself to truly experience your emotions. As an actor, this class has helped deepen my emotions, understand them and respond more truthfully to them. As a teacher, Wayne is very dedicated and available to his students. He always answers the phone if you have a question, he helps you find the best ways to package yourself as an actor, and he is honest in all of his feedback during class. I am grateful to have found Wayne and this studio!

Mr. Wayne is the real deal, and I truly mean it. While the majority of the acting studios in Los Angeles, fill you with the bs of becoming an overnight star Mr. Wayne lets you know that the only way to success is through persistent hard work. HE KEEPS YOU ACCOUNTABLE! He could care less about collecting your monthly fee, he is truly in the business of teaching Meisner because he knows it works and wants to see his actors work. You also study directly with the man himself, no signing up for someone's studio only to work with junior instructors for years until you get to work with the person whom you initially signed up to study under. Small class sizes = more engagement and personal attention. If you want to be an exceptional actor, then you need to study with Mr. Wayne Dvorak.

Wayne Dvorak is an exceptional Meisner teacher. He teaches the Meisner Technique, scene study, and vocal work which many instructors fail to include in their teaching. This class is great training for anyone trying to look for the truth in themselves and can be a real eye opener. After only the first few months you will be able to read people and tell what their behaviors and reactions say about them. As far as acting goes Wayne really hones in on being in the moment and being true and connecting with the characters. With that said, if you join Wayne's class, he wants you to be commited and serious about your work because he will throw so much knowledge your way and he wants to make sure that you take in everything that he has to say and apply it to your acting. Wayne goes out of his way to make everyone connect with each other within the group which makes for a relaxing class environment. Our class is more than a group of actors, we become a family.

I took Wayne's two year program as soon as I got to Los Angeles to pursue acting and it was the best decision I have made for my career. The Meisner Technique gave me a solid foundation to be a working actor. On top of that, Wayne was not just an acting coach, but a mentor to us; always wise, supportive and positive. He helped me with my dialect, scene analysis, preparing for auditions... I can honestly say that studying with Wayne Dvorak was life-changing. I studied with other coaches over the years, but no one had come even close.

I really enjoy my Meisner training with Wayne. I have been studying with him for almost a year and plan on continuing my training with him. The classes are small, so you get plenty one on one attention. You get up in front of the class every class. He takes every one of us seriously, and pushes us to become better actors. I have taken many classes in LA, and have found a unique spot to grow.

I??ve had countless acting instructors and worked with a variety of different acting methods since I was about 14 years old. While I learned a great deal from each, and feel that I??ve developed a strong skill set, nothing has brought me as in touch with my emotional life as the Meisner technique. After only six months of training at the Wayne Dvorak Acting Studio in Los Angeles, CA I feel a reality and an honesty in my acting that I rarely felt in my four years of Theatre training at the University of Southern California. In very few words, the Meisner technique focuses on engaging in the reality of each moment, so that you??re reacting in real time rather than reciting line readings. As a result, your interaction with your fellow actors, your thought process, and your acting is honest and in the moment. For film especially this is vital, because the camera reads everything going on behind your eyes. My theatrical training gave me a great sense of WHAT I need to be hitting in each moment, what needs to happen to move the story along, but not necessarily HOW to get there. The Meisner technique is finally opening that door for me, expanding my emotional range and depth in an organic, truthful way. And I cannot rave enough about Wayne as a coach. He has an intuitive sense of the needs of each particular actor and puts great effort into understanding you as an individual- how you work, what your barriers are and how to overcome them. His training is very very personalized and suited to your needs. He also has an amazing knowledge of the business and is always ready with information about resumes, headshots, SAG, casting directors, etc. The Wayne Dvorak Acting Studio is an incredible find! I would recommend it to anyone, whether you are new to the craft or have been studying for 10 years.

Wayne is the best. He knows what hes talking about, he makes you feel comfortable, the info you receive from Wayne is very valuable to your acting career. When I first started taking Waynes class, I was very nervous and shy, but after just the first few classes, I felt that this was just the place for me, where I can improve and start my acting career. Wayne is a very dedicated acting coach, who has been in the industry for a very long time. He communicates with you in a way that you will understand and can relate to. The classes are small which mean EVERYONE gets to work. He makes your reach deep down in yourself, to bring out your best acting. Not only is Wayne an acting coach, but I consider him as a mentor, someone I can trust to guide me in the right direction in life.

When it comes to The Meisner Method and modern acting in general Wayne Dvoraks Acting Studio is at the forefront of LA quality training. Wayne considers himself an acting coach rather than a teacher because he's not only teaching you a craft, he's coaching you through your chosen profession.
I've been training with Wayne for the better part of a year now and I've personally progressed dramatically in that time. Taking Waynes class is a personal commitment between the two of you. He only takes students he believes he can help and work with. Wayne limits his classes to no more than 14 students which is a huge benefit to us: we get more personal attention, we go up and work every week, and Wayne becomes very familiar with our personalities and mannerisms. Which makes the advice he gives us all the more beneficial.
Most of the classes you'll find out here will have 30 plus students, a different teacher here and there, and will be much more expensive than what Wayne charges. Which tells you two things: one, Wayne isn't trying to get rich off his students. And two, he takes his students and craft personally. He wants to make dependable actors. He doesn't want us to book a couple gigs and fade out like most actors do.
I'd recommend Wayne's Meisner teachings and Studio as a complete system and a great foundation you can always come back to. If you know anything about acting you know that you're never done learning your craft and you always need a coach to work with you. I plan to work with Wayne for the extent of my career.

All actors want to "make it big" in Hollywood. But there are very few places where actors can face the cold, hard truth about their crafts and abilities to deliver meaningful work in the business.

Fortunately, I came across Wayne Dvorak's Meisner studio seven months ago to learn the Meisner technique and I have received the greatest gift any artist or person can receive - the truth. The greatest strength Wayne possesses is his ability to discern whether I am being absolutely truthful and believable in the moment. I have never gotten by with weak preparations or shallow performances. His guidance is unbiasedly direct, yet flexible. He is critical, yet caring. This level of attentiveness has immensely helped me reach deeper into the craft.

I highly recommend Wayne Dvorak's Meisner training. There are no shortcuts in the business nor the art. His class is a long-term commitment to ensure the actors' truly and tangibly develop. His studio is spacious and class sizes are small but focused. And most importantly, Wayne is a professional and a wonderful easy-going person. He is really there to share his knowledge with the actors. His class is well worth auditing.

Wayne Dvorak??s Meisner acting class has been an excellent experience, providing a challenging and rewarding study of the craft. Working in the industry as a director, I searched for a serious and structured experience that would immerse me into the actor??s process. This class accomplished that and more. In addition to the Meisner technique, Mr. Dvorak teaches scene study, script interpretation, language, vocal exercises and other intangibles that I??ve found uniquely helpful in my work.

Our class meets weekly in Los Feliz with at least two rehearsals a week completed outside the studio. We work through what Mr. Dvorak has designed as seven levels of the Meisner technique over a period of two years. Two years sounds like a huge commitment, and it is, but developing one??s acting tools takes time, work and dedication and I believe that this structure works.

Many of the exercises are difficult because Mr. Dvorak challenges you to operate outside of your comfort zone until you are comfortable and adept at visiting all the key emotional aspects of yourself. Class sizes are small and reasonably priced and though the program last two years, we take a hiatus in December and July. He??s been teaching this class for many years and his experience is evident with his perceptive and honest critiques.

As my class approaches the end of two years of study, I feel fortunate to have found Mr. Dvorak??s program and am very appreciative of the experience and development as an actor and as a director, writer and creative person. My respect and admiration for the craft of acting has grown exponentially as has my confidence as an actor. I cannot imagine moving forward in my career without this experience.

It??s worth the time to pay a visit to Mr. Dvorak??s studio and audit a class before committing to a course of study.
