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 7-18 years old. 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 (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 say “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 > 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.

Jax is such an amazing coach, role model and inspiration for our young aspiring actors! She is incredibly knowledgeable, professional and her energy is infectious. As a parent, I personally love how buttoned up she is with her lessons so my girls can prepare ahead of time and get the most out of their sessions. I highly recommend her if you’re looking for an acting coach!

Veronica - I have been working with Jacléne for 2 months now, and I can proudly say I have gained a lot more confidence and growth with the help of Jacléne and her great teaching techniques. At first I felt awkward as a beginner in acting, but I quickly grew comfortable around Jacléne and have been pushed out of my comfort zone. I look forward to her classes every week and I can’t thank her enough for making acting challenging but incredibly enjoyable!
