A note from Katie Sarife, Zachary Roozen, & the Just Be Acting Studio team.

We are thrilled to announce we will be traveling to New Jersey for a film project this September, which allows us the offer an exciting opportunity to bring Just Be Acting Studio to New Jersey. This class is well suited for both actors just starting out and actors who are passionate about their craft and eager to take their skills to the next level. We cater the material and experience to each individual so you get the most out of this experience.

With over a decade of hands-on experience in the entertainment industry, we look forward to sharing the tips and tricks we have learned in a two day, in-person acting intensive. ​ During this intensive, we will cover a wide range of topics including scene study, character development, audition techniques, and a Q&A. ​ Our goal is to provide you with a safe, supportive, and challenging environment to explore your creativity and push your boundaries. We believe that actors who are committed to their craft and diligent in their training will not only book more work but feel more confident on set when they do book the job. Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned actor, this intensive is designed to help you grow and evolve as an artist. So, mark your calendars and join us for an unforgettable two-day acting intensive. We're excited to meet you and be a part of your acting journey. We look forward to working with you soon. ​ Best, ​ Katie Sarife and Zachary Roozen
