"The true creation of a being, a character other than one’s self, for me is comparable to a mystical or spiritual experience. To stand in another person’s shoes. To see as he sees, to hear as he hears. To know what he knows, and to do all this with a sense of control, a mastering of the dramatic moment, there must be more than a “natural talent” at work.”

Why take acting Class? With all of the activities available to kids these days, deciding on what you should get them involved with can be a challenge, especially since you are not trying to fill up their schedules, but enrich their young lives. Acting classes are enjoyable, entertaining and amusing. They instill practical benefits that will help them throughout the course of their lives long after the lessons end.
Public speaking is probably the number one fear in the minds of the majority of people. Acting class is a wonderful way to build self confidence. The class is a "safe haven" for public speaking. Through acting exercises, students become quite used to speaking in front of each other. As they become more comfortable, their confidence increases as well. Character development allows students to feel more confident about public speaking, as it is not they but their characters who are speaking. Additionally acting focuses on vocal projection, articulation, and timing— things that trip up the anxious public speaker.
Empathy and Effective Communication
Understanding what motivates different characters helps people better understand those around them. This awareness allows actors to empathize with others and communicate effectively. President Ronald Regan was nicknamed "The Great Communicator". All politics aside, it is clear that the skills he developed as a Hollywood actor helped him to understand the mindset of the American public, so that he could effectively communicate his own beliefs and policies. The ability to empathize and communicate effectively will help students in their personal and professional relationships long after the curtain closes. firstname.lastname@example.org or call 615-431-9620 for info.
