My Educational Philosophy
Jenn's philosophy on teaching acting begins with helping actors find an organic way of coming to the truth through various methods including Meisner, Stanislavsky, Strasburg, Linklater, Laban, Suzuki. Through these methods and ensemble, intensive scene and monologue work the actor will come in contact with their inner voice In her room she sees herself as a guide, Jenn learns as she teaches. She believes in the Socratic method of teaching because acting is not finite; acting must be open to questions and refinement. Coming from observation, examination, and internalization, acting is a growing, breathing, ever changing art.
