What they say

Sigourney Weaver

“I have worked with acting coach Jack Waltzer since 1994. Jack’s script breakdown techniques and his innovative exercises have completely revolutionized the way I prepare for a film. Our work together deepens and personalizes each scene in profound ways, thus allowing me to truly let go and become another person in the imaginary world of the film. I arrive on set completely prepared and raring to go.
Jack is the best acting teacher I have ever known – the only good one in my opinion. He is inspiring, practical and discreet. I can not recommend Jack Waltzer more highly. He is “THE MAN”

Excerpts from Sigourney Weaver’s letter of recommendation – September 25, 1998

Roman Polanski

“I used Jack Waltzer’s expertise on several motion pictures and plays I directed. He helped me immensely coaching the beginners as well as the experienced and accomplished actors.
Jack Waltzer is the only no-nonsense acting teacher I know and recommend. His classes are fascinating. I like to pop in as a sort of “guest student” just to learn some more.
In preparing an actor for a performance he knows how to build a character.”

“In order to give the acting class segment, in “Tootsie” an authenticity, I used Jack Waltzer’s classroom and lots of Jack’s students to do the repetition exercise and mood image exercises.”

Stanley Beck

“As a film producer, I am frequently called upon to recommend an acting teacher. Unhesitatingly and foremost, the first name that has always come to mind is Jack Waltzer. I feel he has the expertise to work in a most personal way with the actors in developing their fullest potential.”
