Los Angeles, CA
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."
