Do his students work?
This is the question you have to ask yourself when looking for a teacher. Brie Larson, Anton Yelchin, Janel Parrish, Ashley Benson, Vanessa Hudgens, Amanda Sternberg, Trevor Donovan, Kellan Lutz, Shane West, Rachael Leigh Cook, Jena Malone, Jake Lloyd, Gregory Smith, Gabrielle Union, Rob Brown and Ashton Holmes are just a few of the working actors Dennis LaValle has coached.
Acting coach and director, Dennis LaValle teaches an eclectic technique melded from his over thirty years of experience on stage, film, television and commercial work. "I think it's important to learn specific techniques, but no one school of thought will suffice in all situations." As Shakespeare said, "Suit the action to the word, the word to the action." Dennis teaches a way of creating characters that draw from the vast experiences each individual actor possesses.
