"Acting is not feeling, Acting is what you do about how you feel." "How do you feel about it, what are you doing about it." Two things said to me when I first went to Janet Alhanti as a student in 1998. Not only has Janet taught me how to work, she has taught me how to live as a person. She is a teacher who is a real person. Hard to find in this town. When I first moved to Los Angeles to achieve my dreams of being an actor I went to The American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Which was a waste of time and money. If you want to be a dancer go to the best dance teacher, you want to be a singer go to the best Singing coach, If you want to be an actor go to the best acting coach and that is what I set out to do. I went to many of the top agents in town and asked about who they recommended to study with. They all said Howard Fine, Larry Moss, and Janet Alhanti. I interviewed with all three. I decided to study with Janet, and it was the best decision I have ever made. Janet taught me how to work as an actor. How to understand what the material was about and how I had to live up to the demands of the material. If they are playing the waltz you can't do the cha cha. She taught how to break the material down and do the work, and the more work you put into it is what you get out of it. Most actors think if they learn the lines then they have done the work, or if they cry then they are a good actor. Janet taught me it's not about feeling, but if I understand what the material is about and the circumstances then that will take me to where I need to be. Action and Reaction. Working off one another, listen, relationships and what a relationship really IS, are all things you must do and know to be a good actor. If a person is not a sensitive person, then on stage or film they will not be a sensitive person. And every person is sensitive to themselves, but it is about sensibility. Do you know how we affect each other. Janet told me that my vulnerability was my strength, and not a weakness. I could write a novel on how much I have learned from Janet, like I said not only have I learned and own my craft, but she taught me how to be all that I can be as a person first and foremost. I urge every actor to experience what I have been so truly grateful to experience and learn from one of the greats, and in my opinion is the greatest. Janet told me it's not about being the best, but it's about being good at what you do. Best is a matter of opinion. From Meisner to Alhanti to the people who are lucky enough to get to learn form her. Thank you.
