ACTING with RESIDENT COACH, JOE SALAZAR

Joe Salazar, co-owner of The Actors Company, is a veteran acting coach who has been teaching for over 25 years and has loved every minute of it. Joe strongly believes that actors do their best work when they allow themselves to be free, letting the audience (or camera) catch what is authentic about them, what makes them memorable, and what makes them stand out.

“The best part of teaching is getting to that point where you see the actor doing what they do because they love it.” - Joe Salazar

ACTING FUNDAMENTALS with JOE SALAZAR

Joe’s teaching his ACTING FUNDAMENTALS CLASS for actors who are new or returning to acting. This class focuses on helping actors build the confidence needed to pursue their acting goals. Every actor learns differently so Joe has created a small class, (12 maximum) so he can take a very individual approach toward each of his students by helping them see clearly what they are doing that is working for them and where they need to improve. The small class size also allows for each student to work a minimum of 3 times per class because the more you work, the better you get. Beginning and returning actors will learn how to work with strong character goals, make active choices and learn how to create and stay involved in the world of their characters.

CLASS FOCUS: On-Camera Auditions, Cold Readings, Scene Study, Monologues, Character Development and Script Analysis.

Joe loves teaching actors and believes in challenging actors to be their best. Students need to be passionate about their acting goals, committed, hard-working, and want to have fun learning. “Every opportunity to act is an opportunity to be the best actor you’ve ever been”.

DATE: Every WEDNESDAY 
TIME: 7:00pm 
COST: $240 per month ($300 when there are five Wednesdays in the month) 
**a $4 processing fee is added if paying on a credit or debit card**

ADVANCED ACTING with JOE SALAZAR

Joe’s teaching his ADVANCED ACTING CLASS for actors who have been working professionally or are ready to work professionally. Joe guides actors toward making bold choices in their auditions so they stand out. Actors work on On-Camera Auditions, On-Camera Cold Reads and Set Ready exercises geared toward preparing actors for what would be expected from them once they are cast, including first rehearsals, blocking, changes to material, master shots and close-ups. The material changes each week because Joe likes actors to be versatile with genres and characters. There is also emphasis on Monologues, Script Analysis and Character Creation. Class size is kept small, (12 maximum) so each student will work a minimum of 3 times per class because the more you work, the better you get.
