I’m often asked what makes me choose acting, and my answer is always the same. It’s the key that it can give to deepening our humanity. Our understanding. If we’re open, if we’re listening, the characters we meet and give mind, flesh, and spirit to will teach, edify, and potentially even heal us in ways we never expected. Art is magical like that. So much bigger than ourselves, powerful enough to connect the masses.

John Pallotta’s belief is that “Acting is A State of Mind”. Today, that belief has become an industry standard in John’s books and in his teachings across the country.
John has accomplished thousands of coaching sessions and has ignited and reignited the careers of some of the talent you see on TV today: including Emmy award winner Anna Chlumsky, Emmy Winner Johnny Alonso and so many more.

John's focus as a teacher of the craft is to help each and every one of his students finds their own voice as an actor. Acting is a process. It is a journey of discovery. It is a living breathing process that happens each and every day and does not happen overnight. Becoming an actor is learning a new way of thinking and about the way you look at life. Just as you make choices in life that determine your success or your failure. It goes the same for your choices you make as an actor.
