"Incubator for creativity, empathy, and integrity"

Jen Waldman Studios has been an incubator for creativity, empathy and integrity in my development as a theatre artist. Classes at the studio, whether taught by Jen or Steve (and I’m sure everyone else whom I haven’t had the pleasure of working with yet), are playgrounds for me, where I feel comfortable to leap outside of my comfort zone, and push the boundaries of what is possible not only in my technique, but more importantly, in my humanity and artistry. The class environment that has been carefully built by Jen and her tremendous team in a space that is safe and wildly challenging at the same time. This is also due to the immense kindness and support shown by every single peer in the dozens of classes I have taken at the studio. The JWS community is truly a unicorn in a field of plastic horses. I am thankful that I do not have to imagine a life without the magic of JWS, and I implore any and every performing artist who is invested in finding depth and joy in their work to experience the magic as well.
