Joining a theatre class is a great way to improve your skills, but the idea of it can be daunting. If you’re looking for a sign to seek out theater instruction, this is it! Here are 5 reasons you should take an acting class.

1. Practice makes perfect

Practice, practice, practice… Improvement comes from repetition. If you dream of being a great performer, the best thing you can do is act as much as possible. In Fox Music Showtime, you’ll have the opportunity to perform in some capacity every single class! Whether the daily activity is improv, pantomime, or creating accents, each practice opportunity is a chance for you to learn and develop more and more. Remember, the more experience you have, the more skilled you will become. So be sure to get started sooner rather than later!

2. Learn from a professional

Natural ability is a wonderful gift, but taking your skills to the next level will require guidance. An acting coach will be able to view your performances and abilities through a professional lens and give you specific tips and tricks to improve and step-by-step methods to reach your full potential. Teachers at Fox Music Showtime are knowledgeable and experienced, and ready to help you grow beyond what you ever thought possible.

3. Gain self-confidence

Who doesn’t want to be a better public speaker and an overall more confident person? Theater builds life skills like these in each and every class without you even realizing it! Lessons will break you out of your shell and make you more comfortable in front of groups of people than you could have ever dreamed. You’ll challenge your brain to use your imagination and see what you are truly capable of. You’ll gain confidence, which will not only make you feel better, but will also take you far in your school or workplace.

4. See the world from new perspectives

One of the coolest things about theatre is that it allows you to literally spend time in the shoes of another human being, something we don’t ever get to experience otherwise. When you act as a character, you will get a sense of what it is like to be that person, whether they’re a different gender, part of another culture, or have different values than your own. You’ll see the world from new perspectives and become a more well-rounded, empathetic person.

5. Experience a unique environment

There is nothing quite like an acting class! You’ll be amazed by how much fun you’ll have every time you attend. Theatre is not like anything else; we’re always moving, exploring, and trying new things. Theatre teachers teach their students concepts through hands-on, revolutionary activities that are nothing like a typical academic class setting. To top it off, our class environment is safe and welcoming, so you can feel free to be yourself without fear.
