Essence Weekend Intensive

An intensive about moving through the fear that has been keeping you from fully playing in your acting. 

Online or in-person

This high-level intense course opens the door within — how to bring energy and insight to your acting skill.

You will learn how to break down the walls that interfere with your instincts. You’ll gain access to a newfound depth and build on a unique brand of your own confidence.

You will gain access to what is holding you back and discover a newfound edge that will set your acting free.

Class Structure: This 3-day (Friday-Saturday-Sunday), in-person Intensive includes a virtual private session prior to the intensive and a follow up “check-in” after the weekend with Kimberly Jentzen.

Tap into Deep-Level Emotion: Exercises in trust, perception, self-expression, and the ability to access emotion for the purpose of uncovering and/or rediscovering lost parts of yourself; these are some of the epiphanies from past Intensives.

Heighten Attributes: Participants share wonderful discoveries and a multitude of rich qualities after The Essence Intensive, including heightened magnetism, charisma, strength, mystery, depth, humor, confidence, sensuality, sex appeal, and a new commitment to being an artist.

“Breakthroughs and higher levels in life are hard to obtain. I want to thank Kimberly for helping me to get to deeper levels in my life and, in turn, my acting.” Sherrie Rose

“The Essence Intensive was very powerful. I learned that what’s inside me is good enough. Thank you for helping to coax it out.” Sheryl Bernstein

“Kimberly Jentzen has given me the tools to build a life and career as an artist.” David Landry
