Tips to Pick Acting Class For Your Child

Pick an acting coach that lets kids be kids. This doesn’t mean that a child acting class should be all play, but fun should definitely be incorporated in teaching… or not only will your child not enjoy the class, they will start to think they have to behave like an adult when they audition, which is exactly what casting directors don’t want to see. Directors and producers look for kids who can act, not kids who act like adults. Children have a natural ability to play make believe and to really get invested in their imaginary games (something many adults lose when they grow up), so acting can be very natural and fun to them. The goal is to find a kid acting teacher that will teach them how to stay natural when they play in front of an audience (or camera) and not coach them a specific way to say a line or make a face, so look for acting schools for kids that teach things like Spolin’s theater games, storytelling, role playing and mime.

Although all the skills mentioned above are useful, the most important thing children can gain from a good acting class is the confidence to be themselves. If they know what to expect when they walk into an audition because they’ve done it all before in class, they will be much more confident. Pick a kids acting class that prepares them for auditions, lets them perform in front of others and gives them practice time in front of the camera. For example, they should learn things like how to find their mark and slate their name during on-camera auditions. Look for a kids acting class that offers support and makes children realize that their worth has nothing to do with whether or not they are successful in the biz.
