Playing the love ... whenever I get stuck, that's what goes through my brain. And it's a great thing to remember even when you're not acting. Kimberly is a fantastic teacher, coach, and friend, and I am so grateful for everything that she's brought to my creative life. I never knew what it was like to book a TV show until I worked with Kimberly. And it's pretty awesome! ;-)

Kimberly is an absolutely wonderful acting coach. She works with each actor by building on their strengths and moving forward from there. She is personable and is able to relate to each actor. There is something special about Kimberly and her Power Tools. I have been taking classes with her for a little over a month and already booked two films.

Kimberly is not only an amazing acting teacher and coach, she is a wonderful person. Her knowledge of the craft of acting, and human behavior, is invaluable. Study with her and she will help you become the very best actor you can be. I always have her book, ACTING WITH IMPACT, within reach. It is my go-to as I prepare for every audition I get and every part I am cast in. I am grateful beyond words for Kimberly Jentzen!

Before I started taking class, I did tons of research on acting coaches and audited almost every well-known acting studio in Los Angles. I made notes of every acting coach, and finally I chose Kimberly. She is born to be a wonderful coach. She knows HOW to get you there. Its amazing to see my fellow actors all grow together in class and become better and better.
You don't even know how much work you need to work on as an actor until you meet Kimberly. But dont worry, she will lead you along the way.

I have learned more from Kimberly in the intensive class she has once a month than all acting coaches I've studied with combined. As a result, I've grown as an artist immensely. She is a truly brilliant, honest and hilarious (never boring) mentor! Love her x infinity.

Before I started working under Kimberly, I read her book "Acting With Impact" and within the first 10 pages I knew she was the teacher that would help me grow. Not only did I grow in the craft, and continue to grow I may add, I also grew as an artist in general. From your foundation, to the approach of the work and process, Kimberly will challenge you to get the little things right in the craft that will open you up to explore the work in its true essence.

With her tough love and passion for acting, she will take you as far as you are willing to go. Even though you may not see it at first, Kimberly can see your full potential and will not allow you to create just "ok" work for the sake of your own artistry and for the respect of the craft itself.

Kimberly is an amazing instructor and coach. Her technique is practical and transformational. Never have I felt more challenged, imspired, and encouraged in an acting class. Also, Kimberly has not only grown me as an actor, but as an artist and person in general. Kimberly is helps you know yourself and find what works for you. I walk into auditions now with a newfound confidence and strength because of what I have learned in her class.

Kimberley's classes are exceptional! Kimberley develops the Actor by tapping into the spirit, mind and body to release our full potential as human beings for whatever task that is at hand. It's very encouraging and will teach you tools to be successful in all areas of life.

Kimberly's class has definitely changed my life. I truly believe that her class has given me an edge and the tools to become successful in my acting career. She keeps it real and leads you to grow while still being compassionate and inspiring. She gives you the tools for success but she will not hold your hand, be ready for real notes that will prepare you for professional projects, and being on set. If you use her tools, direction, and stay commited you will be on your way to becoming truly brilliant. If you are looking for some insight into her teaching style read her book Acting with Impact!

If you really want to grow and evolve as well as to have crazy fun in an acting class, Kimberly Jentzen is definitely one of the top teachers who can give it to you. She is no joke and will tell you how it is. But she does it with such warmth and caring and that deepens your understanding inspiring you to further growth. Hands down Kimberly is a teacher, a friend and your fan, when it comes down to you pursuing your dreams.

I have absolutely loved working with Kimberly. She is by far my favorite out of all the acting teachers I have taken classes with thus far in LA. The tools she teaches from her book include the basics you may learn at a drama school, or with another coach, like objective, emotion, tactics, etc., but elaborates even more on them and then goes to more and more advanced, new techniques. Her method is really unique and she teaches innovative techniques to take your acting to the next level that you won't find anywhere else. She provides the book for you if you take classes, which is great. I definitely recommend reading it even if you don't take classes with her. I think the best thing about Kimberly is her dedication. Class often goes late (though if you have to leave at a certain time just let her know and it's fine), meaning that she's putting in that extra time even when she's not getting paid for it. She always goes above and beyond what is expected. In addition, she's funny and entertaining, and still has authority over the class and so much knowledge. She's great to listen to and class never feels long, even during the weekend intensive when we're there sometimes 12 hours. I am already seeing myself grow as an actor in her class. She can be tough on you but it's only because she wants you to learn and grow. I really do think that she believes in everyone in the class and is pushing for us to do well. Class is a combination of learning the tools and applying them in exercises, and presenting scenes (either a cold reading or something you've been working on for a few weeks with a scene partner, or an audition piece you want to prep). The others in the Level 1 class are mostly young actors at the start of their career, often just starting to work, although not always (there are older people and they fit in just fine, and there are working actors or people returning to acting after a break) and everyone is so encouraging to each other. It's a comprehensive class in many ways because we work on different genres and different techniques. She also offers a lot of individual attention and helps point out your strengths and how to improve your weaknesses. Her prices are reasonable and like I said, she goes above and beyond what you pay for. She also sometimes brings in guests to speak or teach, which is great. She offers intensives, different level classes, and private sessions. Overall great class, I recommend it to anyone at any stage of their career!

One weekend in Kimberly Jentzen’s intensive added more to my acting ability and acting toolkit than 10 years of training elsewhere. She has an insight into acting that I’ve never experienced before, an insight that finds its roots in a deep understanding of human behavior and human nature. Her warmth and vivacity permeate the workspace, creating a trusting environment that allows for full exploration of a given character or scene. Do not miss an opportunity to work with Kimberly. Working with her opens the way to becoming a consistent, powerful actor.

I've had several acting coaches throughout my life and Kimberly is the one that really honed in on my strengths and weaknesses and helped me develop into a well rounded, confident actor. There's nothing better than feeling uplifted and inspired by your coach.

In addition, her book, Acting With Impact, is fantastic for actors, whether you are new to acting or an actor who's already established in the industry. These tools are absolutely priceless. They've come in handy in the audition room and have helped me become even more confident in my craft.

Kimberly kicks ass!, She not only focuses on your personal strengths and weaknesses, audition techniques, and she works the craft and how to be the master of accessing emotions and imagination in order to give authentic performances. She teaches with total love for actors and will definitely give you a workout!

I have only been with Kimberly for a couple of months now but I can tell its exactly where I need to be. Before working with Kimberly, I thought I was working hard. Now that Ive been training with her I have realized I had only been using half of what I had to offer. She really pushes you and holds you accountable for the amount of work you're putting in. She sees what you could one day be and doesn't let you settle for anything else.

She hones right into what you are needing at each moment to improve your acting and what is holding you back internally to get you through those breakthroughs.

Trained over a year with her and learned a TON. And I may have booked an awesome role (or eight) thanks to KJ!

If you want to improve your skills, as well as your depth and honesty, she will help. If you want to advance your acting career this is the place to be. She not only works on technique and scene study, but also the business side of things. I am so grateful to have discovered Kimberly Jentzen!

As an actor, every once and a while during a scene everything seems to come together in just the right way. Lightning Strikes! Kimberly's technique teaches you to capture lightning in a bottle!
