John Rosenfeld Studios Youth Division
Four Saturdays per month, from 11am to 2pm.
Taught by Graham Outerbridge and Jeanette Maus
Ongoing Youth Class
With an ever-changing landscape, how does the young actor find their unique voice and stand out in a highly competitive marketplace? The John Rosenfeld Studios’ Young Adult curriculum gives teens a map of the industry – helping them know where they are, where they want to go, and how to get there. With the four tenets as our compass— Confidence, Preparation, Professionalism, and Community — we empower our actors to shape their craft.
Genres/Formats — We will dive into Single-Cam and Multi-Cam Comedies, hour long dramas and film, breaking down the Text and finding Specificity within each Genre.
Auditions — How to Audition for the Camera, Slating, Working with a Reader.
Improv — We will use Improvisation to spark our imagination, with games and exercises in Character Development, Emotional Play, and making sense of our “Who, What, Where and Why.”
Actors are encouraged to bring in any auditions they are working on.

As a part of the Saturday curriculum, Jeanette and Graham had the students write and shoot two short films during class as a way to inspire and motivate them to create their own content. “Battle” premiered at the 2016 John Rosenfeld Studios Short Film Festival.
The John Rosenfeld Studios’ Teen class has given my son, David Gil the ability to explore the talent industry with a personal approach. His coaches, Graham and Jeanette introduced a new perspective in acting as well as focusing on new techniques. While David built a personal connection with his coaches and his classmates; we both established a family-like relationship with everyone at JRS. The teachings were down to earth and helped him accelerate in his acting with facial expressions, cold readings, and improvisation; as well as challenging David to apply different techniques during an audition. He has become more confident within himself and has broken through the shy stage. I can continue to share our experience about JRS but you will never experience the personal respect, love and support they give to their students, by just reading my words. This is a class you will never regret taking, therefore, If you are dedicated to your child’s acting career then I recommend the JRS Teen class. Graham and Jeanette took David under their wing and allowed him to shine on every level. He no longer experiences shyness when meeting with casting directors or meeting new people.
“Acting has become as easy as breathing to me; thanks to my coaches at JRS.” David Gil
