To be in accordance with our state’s “safer at home” rules, JRS has moved all of our classes and coachings online! Please reach out to the office at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions during this time of transition. As always, we will continue to foster creativity and community while providing a home where you can feel safe to practice and play.
Love, John and the JRS Team
LEARN ABOUT JRS
Our studio is a community that focuses on creating the constitution of a happy working actor.
WHAT THEY SAY
What I find so unique about JRS and in particular John, is his ability to meet you exactly where you're at on your path, and make you better.

Actor (Series Regular on 24, MASTER OF SEX, THE DEFENDERS, etc.)
John is an amazing teacher. I cannot recommend him enough. He was one of the most significant influences on my career as an actress...

I found John and his studio at the lowest point in my career. I was going nowhere fast, career-wise, and my own self worth had been obliterated by the industry.
