Drawing upon the techniques of the great early century teachers as well as contemporary masters, Jason Weiss teaches an amalgamated style that is focused on identifying the strengths of each, individual actor. Acting is a highly personal art form and the goal of the JW Studio is to help each actor develop a personal and unique style, leading to more believable characters, more accurate branding and superb marketability. It is where they can explore their specific strengths, weaknesses, triumphs, and fears in a safe and supportive environment. The JW Studio is a place serious actors can call their home.
