More than a few years ago, I decided to dabble in the world of theatre and film. I had always wanted to be an actor, but thought it was beyond my reach. I was a bit shy, and became extremely nervous when speaking in public. I had no talent that I was aware of, but, I did have an aching desire and a lot of will-power. Since then, I’ve acted in several community theatre productions, one off-mainstream professional production, one feature-length independent film, and two short films. Taking that trip, going out of my comfort zone, and pushing myself to go after what I wanted was definitely worth it.
I learned something about myself by taking acting classes and participating in community theatre. I feel that the lessons I learned were so important for helping me grow as a human being, that I want to share those lessons with you. These are just some of the ways an acting class can help you grow.
