Why Actor Space Studio?

Acting Training Dallas TX

The truth is, everything you need to be a working, professional actor is within you right now.  That’s a bold statement, and one that “flies in the face” of most modern acting training.  Nonetheless, it happens to be true.  And by the way, it doesn’t have to take a long time.


So if it’s all there, then why study?  Well, there is discovery, and rediscovery – of yourself and who you are, other people and the world around you.  The full range of your emotions, your point of view and your understanding are explored and strengthened to bring about confidence and certainty as an artist.  And then there are the technical aspects.

This is a new method of acting training.  Our approach is unique in that we utilize many different schools of thought, a wide variety of training methods, and an individual approach to analyze the actor’s strengths and weaknesses.  We build strength where strength exists, and correct weaknesses with direct, no-nonsense drills designed to handle those specific points.

Over the past 35 years, both in New York and LA, as a working professional actor, I’ve gained valuable insight and insider information about what works and what doesn’t work in this business, and I share that with you.

There is a new class forming now.  Some of the work will be challenging. All of the work is fun! You will be inspired and motivated. And you will inspire and motivate others.


My purpose is to simplify, clarify and make known exactly what it takes for you to achieve your dream as a working, professional actor.

If this sounds like the kind of training you might be interested in, give us a call.  All are welcome!

About Me

Jack began his career as a member of the highly acclaimed Alley Theatre in Houston, Texas where he performed a variety of roles including theater for young audiences and main stage.   He landed his first film role as Joe in the cult classic “Student Bodies” directed by Michael Ritchie, then toured with Gary Burghoff (Radar O’Reilly on MASH) in theaters throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Jack relocated to New York City where he performed off and off-off Broadway and began his television career with the daytime drama “Guiding Light.”   After recurring in several “soaps,” he was picked up as a contract player by ABC for their hit daytime drama “All My Children,” and later “One Life to Live.” Over the course of his career, he has starred in eight different soap operas.

After arriving in Los Angeles Jack guest starred in a variety of primetime shows including the pilot for “The Famous Teddy Z,” “Quantum Leap,” “Family Ties,” “Oh, Baby,” “The Tick,” “High Tide,” “V.I.P.,” “Friends,” “Beverly Hills 90210,” and over the years “Bones,” “Scandal,” “Timeless,” “Westworld,” “Why Women Kill,” “The Morning Show,” “How To Get Away with Murder,” “Feud – Bette and Joan,” “American Crime Story,” and “Mr. Mayor” among others.  He landed the lead role in the live-action Sci-Fi thriller “The Guyver” opposite Mark Hamill, and the movie “28 Days” with Sandra Bullock.  Other film roles include “Twisted Twin,” “The Boys in The Band,” and “Hard Knox.”

He won a Dramalogue Award for best supporting actor in the original production of “Mountains” and wrote and starred in the award-winning short film “Crisis de la Commode” for which he won the Gold Remi Award for best writer from the Houston International Film Festival.

Adult Acting Classes

Acting class should provide an opportunity to practice the actor’s skills and expand the actor’s abilities.  It is a tool to facilitate the actor and move them forward toward their goals.  We use an individual approach to build strength where strength exists, and no-nonsense drills to address and improve those areas that need additional attention for each actor. 


Tuesday evening – Advanced Scene Study

Here we focus on scene work, rehearsal and performance, for actors who have completed prior training and those who are working in the business.  This program allows the actor to demonstrate mastery of basic technique and character work, while exploring language, emotion, and style.  This class is where we put it all together.  Class size is limited!  7pm – 10:30pm 


Thursday evening – Beginning Actor Training

This class is designed for those with little to no formal acting training or for those who haven’t trained or worked professionally in some time, as a refresher course.  Class consists of exercises, improvisation, monologues and basic scene work, with a focus on technique.  Class size is limited!  7pm – 10:30pm

Private Coaching

OUR MOST POPULAR OPTION!  The benefits of private coaching are many.  While class is fundamental to learning the actor’s craft, working one-on-one with a coach can speed up the process considerably.  Needs can be addressed directly, questions can be answered fully, and specific challenges can be examined and handled to create more opportunities for the actor.  This time can also be used for industry audition preparation.
