Dennis LaValle

Adult & Teen Class/Private Coaching

For over twenty years Dennis LaValle has turned out some of the most exciting and successful young actors in hollywood. His clients have appeared in starring roles in such films and television shows as Star Wars The Phantom Menace, Pretty Little Liars, Hunger Games, ER, Twilight, Criminal Minds, Superman Returns, CSI, High School Musical, Bring It On, Spiderman and Glee to name just a few.
Dennis received his BFA from the prestigious NYU/Tish School of the Arts and worked extensively on the stage in New York before moving to Los Angeles. Once in L.A. Dennis founded the LaValle Actors Workshop and has not stopped working.
"The harder you work, the luckier you get!" This is the motto and creed that ties all aspects of the studio together. Luck is merely preparation meeting opportunity. Dennis believes in training for the audition that you will have tomorrow, next week, next month, next year or five years from now, today! In this way his clients are always prepared for when that "lucky" opportunity comes knocking on your door.
In addition to his coaching he has also directed the feature film The Metro Chase starring Jon Cryer and is the co-author of the best selling humor book, A**holeology with fellow workshop teacher Steve Greenberg.
