I'm one of Will's Minnesota students and I take the class every time he is here. Will makes all actors feel welcomed. The constructive feedback is great unlike other classes where the teacher would rather belittle you and have your performance be exactly like the actual scene from the movie. Will wants the best performance from you and will adjust the scene accordingly. I appreciated Will so much more when he took the time outside of class to give me advice about other entertainment related things. What I like most about Will is also that he is a consistent working actor/director/producer! So where ever you are LA, TX, FL, MN? I recommend Will's class!

I have a lot to say about Will Wallace and then I would have to publish it in a book. Will is genuinely caring about his students and wants them to excel in the industry. He loves his work and he loves people. I commute to Hollywood once a month or bi-monthly to attend his classes. Will works hard to help us be the best we can be. I have known Will and his lovely wife Sara for almost three years. They are both beautiful inside and out. Okay, gotta get ready, it's time for class. See you soon at Will Wallace's Acting Company.

I coach privately with Will and can honestly say that he is one of the best things that has happened to my acting career. He is not only an unbelievable acting coach, but also a true mentor. Will is so enthusiastic about his students and loves to see them thrive. Because of his passion and devotion to his students, he really tries to help guide their careers as much as possible. In just a few months I feel like a completely different actor, and I owe it all to Will. I can't thank him enough for everything he's done for me and I can't stress enough how blessed I am to have him in my life as an acting coach and as a mentor. - Niki Koss

Will is a talented director who understands how to work with actors. It is amazing to work with someone who can provide a directors point of view. Will comes up with creative ways to get his students to stretch their instincts and deliver performances that they can be proud of. Will is an amazing coach and mentor.

When I graduated from the acting conservatory I was looking for a solid acting company to join, one that I connected with the people, felt challenged by the direction and also encouraged to grow. I was fortunate enough to find Will's class and have been a company member now for over 3 years. This past year I made a commitment to myself to be in class consistently and, I am proud to say, can see the amazing results in my work. I am booking roles and not just any kind of roles, but I just booked a pilot. Thanks Will! And thank you Company members who challenge and inspire me every week!!

I have been taking classes with Will for about 6 months now and each month is more inspiring than the last. The class is genuinely the highlight of my week (I drive from San Diego just to take his class)!! The mix of improv, instrument exercises, and scene study pushes you to grow consistently and exponentially. In an industry where you have to be cautious, Will is a beacon of light. His kindness, generosity, and faith in his students is humbling. Not only is Will exceptional, but honestly every person I have come in contact with through him and his class - from my fellow students, to guest teachers, directors, producers, etc.- has been of the same caliber. It truly is a network and family of smart, talented, passionate, effervescent people. I am honored and grateful to be a part of this group and you would be as well!

I've been in the Will Wallace Acting Company for a several months now and I can say that my success in getting work has been highly related to be being a part of this class and being trained by Will himself. I have tried other classes but none of then have brought me the same level of success that this class has. My booking on the short films have gone through the roof, and I'm starting to get roles in feature films including my first lead role in a feature film. I directly attribute all of these successes to Will Wallace. I love his class because most of his students, especially the ones that have been there for a long time are booking!!! Will Wallace himself is constantly booking just from direct offers! Why would you take any other class from someone who isn't getting work? How can someone who's not booking teach you how to book roles? To me that was the whole point in taking a class in the first place. I found everything I needed in Will's class. The environment is extremely supportive and we all celebrate our successes together, because that brings up the reputation of the whole company, not just for the individual. Will makes it a point to only accepting the best into his company. These are the individuals who are willing to learn. That is why before you join you go through a two month internship followed by two auditions to get into his class. All the people in his class are a part of the elite select individuals who work collaboratively and frequently find success. If someone were to ask me what class they need to be in to be more successful, I would say to them, do whatever it takes to be taught by Will Wallace and stick with it!

I had been in LA for 9 months and was still searching for the right acting classes to attend. Every class i audited around town was just not doing it for me. I was searching for a community environment and a teacher who was extremely passionate about the art form. I came across Will by being in the right place at the right time:)I remember watching 4 of his students Scenes and was utterly and completely BLOWN AWAY.Being apart of this company has truly changed my life here in LA. Will has created a space filled with intelligent, talented, passionate artist that welcome you with open arms. He challenges you in every way possible and makes sure that you and him have explored all aspects to your scene and your character. The best thing about Will's class is that EVERYONE gets to work and perform. Class does not end at a specific time. Will works with everyone and makes sure everyone gets their time in class. He can truly bring the best out of you as an artist.Will has a bundle of knowledge and perspective in this business. He has been there and done that. He knows what he is talking about and does truly care for each member in the company. I know if i ever have a problem or question about the industry or acting or just life in general i can turn to Will for help and guidance.I will be forever grateful to his company and his mentoring. It is so much more than just an acting class. i consider it my home and my family where i am comfortable and free to work without limitations or insecurities. Its a place where everyone can grow and expand, a place where everyone can have their own opinions and views. A place where you can debate and try new things. A place where you are pushed out of your comfort zone. A place where you are equal, where everyone learns from each other. And thats the point of this art form- it is about being around people and teachers that can generate an environment where you can never stop learning or growing.Will has done that.

Will's class is fantastic. He covers the whole process of the acting business from clear, strong, interesting audition choices to making the most out of what you bring to the table once you book. We do audition technique, cold reading technique, scene study, and even a little improv. For me it's a very well-rounded experience that doesn't feel at all like it's spread too thinly in too many directions. Will has been working in every part of this business for years and knows what he's talking about. Seriously, fantastic class. it's definitely a highlight of my week.

Will's one of the best acting coaches I've ever had an opportunity to study under. I was fortunate to be accepted by WWAC as an intern early in my career. The classes are of the right size where each actor receives maximum attention. If you're looking for a challenging workout and rewarding education as a thesp, this IS the place!

I have been in Will's class for a little over a year now and it has been a phenomenal experience. I highly recommend it to anybody who is searching for a class that will push them as an actor. Over the course of my first year, I have learned more and grown more as an actor than I ever thought possible. I feel more confident and comfortable cold reading and auditioning, which has been a huge boost to my career. I have already booked some great jobs this year and there are more on the way!The amount of dedication Will shows to his students is staggering. He is invested in our careers and actively brings in directors, producers, agents, and casting directors to see our work. He pushes to book us in the films he works on, which to me really says a lot about the faith he has in us as actors. It is inspiring to be a part of such a talented acting family, which is what these classes really are, a family.Try out the Will Wallace Acting Company for yourself, it will be the best decision you make.My only regret is that I did not find this class sooner.

I can't say enough good things about W.W.A.C.! I've been an actor for 30 years and this is one of the best acting classes I've ever been involved with. The actors in the company are talented, dedicated, intelligent, and fun. The instruction is nothing short of brilliant. I love the improv exercises that Will uses, most of which I've never seen before. It's all about truth, essence, subtext and living in the moment. Bottom line...I'm excited to go to class every week and when I leave I feel like I'm walking on water. I know my auditioning has improved by %1000 since I started this class and I'm booking roles. What more can an actor ask for?

As a student of Will's for nearly 3 years, I can say with certainty that my confidence as an actor has never been better. It isn't a false confidence, but rather a confidence that has spawned from putting in the physical and mental work towards one's craft and continually doing the right things. There are many variables that occur in Will's environment that nourish and sustain growth for actors, but Will has a knack for democratically finding the right raw materials (in order for an actor to be a member, the entire company votes on whether an actor is accepted)and working with talent to transform them into well-polished, strong decision makers that live in the moment. Will doesn't just talk to the talk. His resume speaks for itself. He is a working actor, director, & producer that chooses to spend his valuable time working with other actors because he is passionate about the business. With permission, he will continually push his actors towards their fears, peeling away the barriers that prevent actors from being their best in any given situation. Before long, WWAC actors will see their booking ratio rise, their confidence in critical situations flourish, their choices to raise the stakes strengthen, and that their ability to live in the moment is unparalleled. In the past 2 months, I've booked 3/5 auditions, and I did great work on the ones I didn't get, with personal feedback from the Casting Directors telling me that the decision came down to elements out of my control such as hair color, etc. The mind, once expanded to the dimensions of larger ideas, never returns to its original size, and working with Will shall accomplish this.

Will is one of the best in the business. I've been in LA for 6 years now and been taking lessons from Will for the last 2 and 1/2, I've met quite a few characters in the industry and Will has been the most honest, truthful and helpful one I've met. He's by far the most humble :). He's taught me a great deal about the industry, the business and myself. He challanges all his students and pushes them to their limits and beyond because he knows they are full of greatness! He's truly one of the greats and anyone would be lucky to join his company and have him as a coach! :)

Will's classes are full of professionals who are excited to continue to learn and improve. The class environment is supportive and family-like, always with a positive enrgy. Will gives great insight from a director's point of view, and strives to get the best performance from you!
