About this pro

Most acting classes just teach aimlessly. I find out what my actors' goals are and teach to them. This equals success in a timely manner.

I've been an acting coach/director/mentor for 10 years. I have a published book on acting with another one to be out by summer '18.

Under my direction/coaching, my actors have acheived state championships titles as well as other awards and accolades.

I really enjoy seeing my students grow in their craft and sharing in the excitement and passion for acting.

    Dorian has a unique ability to identify the emotional demand of a role & tap into the purest form of human connection to shape career-defining moments. He coaches students to make thoughtful, unique decisions they otherwise may not choose. Just like experiencing the world around you fade away while engrossed in a mesmerizing film, Dorian invites you into his world where imagination runs wild & “acting” truly becomes “being”.

    I had the best experience working with The Class Act Studios. I learned very valuable lessons with acting, performance, and life in general. He is the best of the best.

    Dorian is my "go-to" acting coach for my students. They absolutely love working with him. Dorian is the best acting coach I've ever worked with. He can get that amazing performance from actors of all ages. My students have racked up the awards since working with Dorian. He gets results but most importantly, he "gets" acting, and people. My students trust him, and he pushes them to be their best.
