I'm also a writer, my first book Shut Up & Dance—The Joy of Letting Go of the Lead, On the Dance Floor and Off, was published by Penguin, and I’ve read my work at various spoken word events including Spoken Interludes, Poetry in Motion, and Sunday Night Sex Talks. I'm currently at work on my second book.
But my greatest passion is teaching. I coach actors in TV, film, and theater and I coach writers to make the most of their readings and media appearances by teaching them how to feel comfortable in front of audiences and cameras.
See below to learn more about my work, and please find me on social media. I look forward to hearing from you!
I've been a professional actor for virtually my entire life and I wouldn't have it any other way... I've had the good fortune to play roles I love and work with many highly respected actors.
Shut Up & Dance! my self-help/memoir using Tango as a metaphor for relationship was published by Penguin...
Although I love writing and acting my greatest joy is coaching...

My manager Joan Sittenfield just wrote this great article for Backstage on the agent (and/or manager) and actor relationship. Great information. I agree with everything she says. 6 Key Components of and Agent-Actor Relationship When an actor signs a contract with an agent or a manager he is, basically, entering into a marriage with his […]Read More...
What people have said about Phil Stutz and Barry Michels NYT bestselling book, The Tools: “Breakthrough material.”__Marianne Williamson “The motivation book that everyone in Hollywood is obsessed with.”__Vanity Fair “[Stutz and Michels] have developed a program designed to access the creative power of the unconscious.”__The New Yorker I’ve been using the techniques contained in The Tools, since the mid-1980s when I was introduced to the brilliant psychiatrist Phil Stutz. When I began my work with Phil I was at a low point in my career and in my personal life. I’d seen many shrinks and had been involved with various self-help systems but nothing created real change until Phil introduced me to The Tools, and taught me how to apply them to my life. I describe The Tools as the "secret weapon" that has allowed me to have a sustained career in the entertainment industry. Now that Dr. Stutz and his partner Barry Michels have codified The Tools into a straightforward and easy to understand book, (there’s even an app!), anyone and everyone can benefit from this groundbreaking and transformative work. I believe The Tools are essential information for writers, actors--anyone who must constantly face the blank page or stage, and I’m honored to be the first to conduct a Tools group in the Los Angeles area. The purpose of the group is for people to have a place to ask questions, share their experiences, and receive support in the practical application of The Tools techniques in their day-to-day lives. The first group will begin in August in the Toluca Lake area. It will be held on four consecutive Wednesday evenings, 8/10-8/31 from 7:15-8:30pm. The group will be limited to 8 participants and will cost $100 for all four sessions. All participants must have read the book and begun practicing The Tools. A phone interview (no charge) is required before acceptance into the group. For more information and to schedule a phone interview please contact me at 323-799-8311 or Jamie@jamierosehere.com
