About Acting Schools

For those that are interested in pursuing acting as a hobby or career, it can be difficult to determine in which type of class to enroll. Local acting schools typically offer a wide variety of classes with different names and skill levels, which can confuse even a veteran actor or actress. Fortunately, with a little bit of background, navigating the course catalog for local acting schools can be a much less daunting task. The first item to consider is the age group of the person who will be taking the course. Local acting schools typically offer classes for a variety of ages. Designations may include preschoolers, elementary school students, high school students, adults, and senior citizens. Coursework in acting classes is geared toward the age group being taught. For instance, a class for preschoolers will most likely not involve reading dialogue or scripts as children of that age typically are not yet reading; similarly, a course for senior citizens might include activities designed for those with a limited range of mobility. In addition to courses for age groups, local acting schools may also provide courses for people confined to wheelchairs or who have other physical or mental disabilities. After selecting the appropriate age level, the next step is selecting the correct ability level. Local acting schools typically offer a number of classes suited to different skill levels, especially in classes geared toward high school students and adults. Beginner or Introductory classes are typically designed for those who have no experience with acting work. Intermediate classes are typically reserved for those who have taken introductory acting classes previously or who may have appeared in a number of plays while classes with an Advanced designation usually are reserved for more seasoned performers. Separate courses may also be offered for professional actors and actresses. If unsure of the appropriate level, your local acting schools may be able to assist.

More on Acting Schools

The final decision that must be made is what type of class is best suited to the goals of the person taking the class. Basic acting classes for teenagers and adults at local acting schools typically involve characterization and scene work involving dialogues and monologues as well as activities and exercises useful in maintaining focus, recovering from flubbed lines, proper enunciation, and projection. Some local acting schools may offer other types of classes as well that may be of interest. One type is Classical or Shakespearean acting, which trains performers to interpret and act out scenes from Greek, Roman, or Elizabethan works of drama. Courses may also feature other types of genres, including comedy acting or acting for musical theater. Improvisational courses typically do not feature work from scripts, but rather are offered by local acting schools to encourage actors and actresses to think creatively and quickly. In these courses, the goal is to engage in ad-lib conversations and actions with fellow performers. Audition or Monologue workshops typically help performers prepare material to use in obtaining roles. By paying careful attention to the age, skill level, and goals of the performer who will be enrolled in the class, it is possible to find the perfect course from one of your local acting schools. With that decision made, all that is left to focus on is enjoying and improving acting.
