Introduction
*Only serious and excited Actors apply! To my prospective student who carries a gift and passion for acting! My name is Jacléne, but I also go by Jax. I am a professional working actor and have recently decided to unlock my knowledge and excitement to educate actors ages 7 and up. I have been an actor nearly all my life, beginning at the young age of five. I began by acting in community theater, and continued in middle school through high school by performing in every play and musical. My passion then led me to pursue acting as a full time career; I went on to study musical theater at Oakland University where I graduated with a BFA. Shortly after graduation I moved to NYC to gain more opportunities, enhance my career and broaden my acting experiences. While living in NYC, I starred in numerous commercials(Chase Bank, Dave and Busters, Rent The Runway, Volkswagen), Independent films (Olivia in Black Ice, & Liberty Smith in Liberty’s Secret) plays (Little Women, A Street Car Named Desire) and studied with the best acting teacher in the city-Anthony Abeson who is known for coaching Jennifer Anniston. I also studied improv at the PIT, and worked with numerous casting directors at ONE on ONE, The Green Room, and Actor's Connection. I currently have two exceptional agents, and have made lasting connections with actors, agents, and casting directors in NYC, MI, PA, and Chicago. The experience I’ve had with countless auditions and callbacks for TV, film, musicals, plays and commercials has given me insight into casting, and what it takes to actually get in the room, be memorable and book! I specifically want to work with young actors because I WISH I had the professional help and coaching from someone like me at a young age to improve my skill set and prepare me for a career in theater and film. I truly want to give young actors the confidence to nail their audition! Most importantly, my coaching will prepare my students to be the best actors they possibly can be by learning how to understand the text of their sides or script, know their character deeply, know the situation, moment before, objective, all of which will be the building blocks to use for a lifetime to acting! If you're a young actor (or parent) searching for a kind, passionate and knowledgeable teacher, I am your coach. Together we will grow your love for acting and enjoy the art of this craft together! My teacher Anthony Abeson would always quote the famous Stanislavski, “there isn't a recipe to acting- it’s whatever works!” I strongly stand by this. No child, or teenager is the same. Everyone works differently and learns differently. There isn’t a one size fits all method like many acting studios teach. I don’t want any of my actors to be the same as the next actor who walks into an audition. I promise to work with the actor and incorporate their unique qualities and personality to grow and achieve their own skill set. Come ACT with JAX! Points of Focus: > Analyzing the script/sides > Monologue work > Scene study > On camera work > Learning how to audition > College audition prep! > How to slate > Resumé and headshot help/revision > Character work > Learning to seek the truth > Building CONFIDENCE! *Please have only the parent or legal guardian contact me if under the age of 18. Thank you.* -Coaching sessions take place at my home privately, or virtually. -Partner work is available, but different fees will apply.

Jacléne was amazing! I started acting lessons to help my social anxiety, and she exceeded all my expectations. From the very first session, she listened attentively to my needs and tailored our work together perfectly. Every session was fun, engaging, and enjoyable, making it so much easier for me to come out of my shell. Jacléne ‘s understanding and flexible approach, especially with rescheduling, made the whole process stress-free. Her support and expertise have been so helpful on my journey to gain confidence. Highly recommend her to anyone looking to improve their acting skills or overcome personal challenges. Thank you, Jacléne!

Could not ask for a better acting coach. Quick to reply to initial request. And follows up with all the info you would need. My son (high school, 18, “the great gatsby”) learned a tremendous amount in just four lessons. Would absolutely recommend.

Our 9 year old daughter has been working with Jax for the past few months and WOW, what an amazing impact Jaclene has had on her in that brief time... My daughter has been working on Comedy, drama, Shakespeare, and other adaptations and Jax has been a guiding force in helping my daughter become a much better actor and a better person. She has helped my daughter with her with her plays, commercials, and film. Its all the details about what happened before a scene, what is happening at the moment and how to act when you are not speaking... I feel like my daughter is a pro...As a parent, I know my daughter is getting real information that will translate not just in her acting but also as she matures through life. Extremely down to earth and relatable, plus my daughter adores Jaclene not just as teacher but as a friend.
