I find Kimberly to be a challenging teacher, one who wont let you rest on your laurels . Her book, Acting With Impact is one of the best I've read. I highly recommend it.

Without Kimberly Jentzen's insight into how to find the truth and honesty of each moment in acting, I would not have grown as an actress. Her acting tools and exercises have allowed me to gain flexibility and be in touch with all human emotions essential for the most connected acting experience.

I am not an actress but I have been in this business for 20 ish years and working with Kimberly Jentzen as her costume designer was amazing! She is strong, devoted and really communicates. I had the opportunity to witness her passion when working with her actors. This is something I do not see very often. In my experience many directors really compose their working on screen but can sometimes avoid the close work with their actors. Not Kimberly. So if I wanted to be an actor I would not hesitate to be coached and trained with her. Dorothy Amos/Costume Designer

I have had my fair share of acting teachers but few people have had such an impact on my professional advancement and understanding of emotional connectivity as Kimberly Jentzen. Her experience is bluntly evident and critics are pinpoint accurate. Her book Acting With Impact or AWI is truthfully one of if not the best book I have ever read on acting and emotional technique. I would recommend her class or her book to anyone that is serious about making a lasting impression in the world of acting.p.s. I also recommend her three day intensive. Not only did I come out of it feeling extremely confident in my self and the breakthroughs I had, but I also watched as a woman (Who has never acted before) gave a goosebump raising performance on the last day. Actually, I felt like everyone in the class went from amateur to professional in literally three days.

Awesome instruction! Really understood and was able to implement the emotions and drives both external and internal, that lay under the text. Found that shifts in my life are taking place, as if...someone dropped a pebble inside my soul, and the ripples are moving outward.

Kimberly has a unique way of enabling and empowering her actors to bring a heightened sense of understanding and thus reality into every scene we create. Her approach seems to resonate with virtually every acting method - it's quite incredible to witness and experience! She is a true gift to the craft of Acting.

Kimberly is without a doubt absolutely wonderful! She is 100% for the actor, always wanting the best for you. She's honest, upfront, doesn't pull any punches but is always kind and loving in her communication and dealings with her students. It is very evident she totally LOVES what she is doing. The passion she has for teaching is amazing; focused, real and intense. Kimberly is without a doubt driven to continually grow as a teacher as well as a writer, a director, and a person. As a result her students are able to further develop because of her growth. I find that to be an invaluable quality in a teacher.I could say so much more, but suffice it to say, I am incredibly thrilled, blessed and truly grateful beyond words to have found and chosen her to be my teacher.

I've had a lot of acting teachers and I learned more techique and made so much more progress from Kimberly in one month than all of the years that I have been training from other teachers combined. I also highly recommend her book,"Acting with Impact"

I had the great fortune of taking Kimberly Jentzen's 'Cold Reading Intensive' this past weekend. Her insight is absolutely astounding, and her tools you get to keep to make you a better actor are priceless. Kimberly truly is a master in knowing the human experience, and her approach to acting gives you invaluable lessons for your craft and for your real life. I highly recommend reading her book before you take the class, so that it gives you a better background, and prepares you for an incredible journey to taking complete ownership of your own artistry.

Kimberly's has an amazing way of bringing out your most powerful work, and understands how to approach each individual in order to do so. Attending one of her cold reading intensives was one of the most empowering and inspiring things I've done as an actor. I look forward to each of her classes and know that I'm going to be challenged with each of them, and will grow. There is no doubt I will use Kimberly as a coach when I need more individualized attention for an audition or for a character when on set. She is truly gifted.

How fortunate was I to run into and take Kimberly Jentzen's class. I wish I would have found her when I first started. She helps you create the persona you need in this business, and the confidence you need to be a strong person when you audition or work. Kimberly gets to know the you and builds you to be the actor Hollywood is looking for. The tools Kimberly teaches not only empowers your acting to the next level, but as a comedian myself. It has helped me take my Stand up act to a more personal level that the audience can appreciate. And as a writer her tools also helped create when I was stuck in that writers block. Thanks for everything Kimberly :)

I truly and honestly LOVE Kimberly Jentzen! She has such an approach to acting it is so relaxing to be in her hands. I first encountered her in an audit with NO current students. She never worked with anyone in the room and she let every single one of do a cold reading scene. I noticed issues with people performances that bothered me and I had no idea what I would say to them to adjust their performance and Kimberly would make a suggestion for each and everyone person that needed it and their performance improved 10 fold in one read. She didn't keep repeating herself either. She had a different approach with each actor she saw. Since I saw how spot on she was I was able to trust her with me. I was right. I made my biggest break through working with her. I found the place I could get to a point in a scene and cry. Because she allowed me the choice to pretend. She was also the first person that clearly show my master techniques the way they were meant to be taught. I attended a performing arts high school and a leading college in NYC for acting and she opened my eyes to techniques I had already learned about in a completely USABLE way. Thank you Kimberly!

Kimberly's way of teaching is unlike any I've experienced!! She's helped me grow and expand in my process tremendously. Her technique is concise and generates results. I highly recommend her book as well it has great exercises to keep your acting in shape. In class she nurtures you but she won't sugarcoat. If something needs to be improved and worked on she will give you direct feedback and help you get where you need to be and I love that about her. She is honest and to the point and knows how to help actors soar to new depths in their process.

Kim is insightful and demanding ( in a good way!)and her passion for teaching is what makes her a tremendous coach and person. Kim lives her life according to what she teaches and believes, and you will live your life in the art and more truthfully as a result. I've grown in more ways than I can count since studying with her. Her ever evolving curriculum is great, too with all the other teachers she is involved with. She is very generous and always puts the actor first.

This review is long overdue. I’m so thankful to have studied with Kimberly. After taking her weekend Intensive, I knew I wanted to continue working with her. Kimberly honors the sacred journey of an artist and creates a joyous environment, which lends to truthful work. The work in class can’t help but spill over empowering all areas of your life. In a business that can be challenging at times her work transforms your mindset for success. I wish I found her right when I moved to Hollywood; she is one of the best teachers out there!

Kimberly is an amazing coach, in my very first class she introduced me to one of her tools, that not only touched my soul, it was also a major break through for me. Ever since then I have been able to use that tool and her other tools that help me when I'm working on a scene or one my characters. I feel truly blessed that she has come into my life.

Kimberly is the complete package! Her teaching process appeals to such a wide range learning preferences. If you like to read it first and internalize the lesson, she provides a wealth of information, experience and motivation from weekly reading assignments in her book "Acting With Impact". If you’re the type that likes to see it done first, she breaks down the classes by appropriate level and showcases different talent, different characters, and different emotions with different students, while making sure everyone in the room is respectful and on the same page. If you learn by trial and error, prepare to be thrown into the fire of cold reads and techniques that will crack your shell and open you up to the mental and physical reality of using your vessel to bring someone else to life. But don’t worry, what makes her class amazing is that, no matter what your learning preference, prepare to learn to love it ALL. She's a tough cookie that always practices what she preaches, and the gospel is LOVE! If you love your craft and you are serious about becoming the best actor you can be, then do yourself the HUGE favor, check Kimberly Jentzen out!

I began studying with Kimberly after she was recommended by an award-winning director whose opinion I respect immensely. Every time I've been on my feet in her class I've learned invaluable technique and have grown as an actress, and I review excerpts from her book and my class notes before any audition or performance. I highly recommend Kimberly's training.

There are not many people you can trust with the inner workings of your artistry, and Im so happy that I can say from personal experience, Kimberly Jentzen is a creative force you want on your team! Her techniques and guidance definitely has some sort of magical, spiritual connection between art, craft, student and guru. With that being said, Kimberly never takes the easy way out, and encourages her students to always do the work. I started in her advanced class, and now in her master class, and I still feel the trust and safety to experiment and explore every dimension of craft, emotion and spirit. I also love that industry folks, such as managers, casting directors and agents come out of their way (yes for free!) to come see our work from time to time! It's a true testament to their belief and trust in Kimberly's passion for helping actors be their truthful, genuine best from inside out. IF you are serious about taking your art to a higher performance level, I highly recommend Kimberly Jentzen!!

Kimberly incorporates her lengthy and well rounded studies with the top teachers on the world with her own technique so you learn more. She loves her actors and will spend as much time as needed for them to grasp her teachings. I've studied with her for two years. The moment I got to LA and I haven't left and won't. She's the go to acting coach.

When I first came to Kimberly’s class, I was shy and lacked complete confidence in myself. I was unsure that I could even excel as an actor, but all it took was ten minutes of Kimberly speaking, and I was hooked onto her words. Her lessons and techniques have opened my eyes to new ways of finding myself in my character, but most importantly, finding the confidence in myself not only as an actor but as a person. It is as if she has x-ray glasses that see deep into your soul and see all the potential that is hidden away under the self doubt. She breaks down any walls you built up and makes you face the truth of who you are and what it takes to become the character in the scene. She is honest, nurturing, and believed in me so much, that I knew I had the talent. She never gives up; whenever I have audition scenes, she will work them over with me again and again until I feel like I have nailed it! Honestly, I cannot imagine my life anymore without Kimberly. No matter how great of an actor you are, there is always room to learn more; Kimberly’s class is the one you just keep coming back to! All I have left to say is thank you so much Kimberly!
