Kimberly Jentzen has been featured in numerous publications and voted “Favorite Acting Coach” in Los Angeles multiple times by Backstage West. With more than 20 years capturing the essence of artistry, incorporating Chekhov, Adler, Strasberg, and Meisner, Kimberly Jentzen is the expert in artistic creation. She is the creator of the inspiring Jentzen Technique, a series of Essential Power Tools designed to cultivate the master level actor.

Jentzen’s approach helps build a necessary foundation, instilling within an actor the motivations and needs of authentic characters. Jentzen’s focus is to guide students of all levels to find their artistic fuel and constantly challenge themselves.

“To master skill, an actor must find the fire to make strong, active choices for performance consistency,” says Jentzen. Classes concentrate on helping actors discover how to OWN IT, eliminating fear, creating an honest character from beginning to end. In her class, one’s craft is continuously molded and applied.

Classes range from beginners to masters. Jentzen also holds her popular Cold Reading Weekend Intensive, as well as her Essence Weekend Intensive. Her new book, Acting with Impact, is an upcoming release. Actors are accepted by interview only. Private coaching available.
