Your child doesn’t have to become the next Meryl Streep to benefit from acting classes. Acting, whether professionally or not has a ton of other advantages to it, particularly for children.
To start, acting classes expand your creativity. In acting classes, such as our improv class, you’ll have to come up with your own storylines and scenarios. This requires kids to get creative in their thinking and expand past that first thought and into the next creative idea. Acting also requires choices that the student will have to make. They will have to decide how they say a line, what their motivation is to say it, and more. These are not only expanding their creativity, but also their autonomy to make decision.
Better Social Skills
Acting is the study and practice of making everyday scenarios come to life. Acting is studying how humans act and interact with each other. When your child studies this, they naturally improve upon their own skills and become better at socializing. Not to mention- it’s fun to act out scenes and make scenes up with your friends! That’s the core of our classes- having fun. Your child will meet tons of friends that share their enthusiasm for creativity through performance art.
Acting also builds up a child’s confidence. They have to go on stage, deliver solo lines, and have all eyes on them. This can be a terrifying task, but when they get over it, they’ve become more confident because of it. This can also help them with future public speaking and presentations at school and otherwise.
In school and throughout our life, memorization is a key technique that we have to keep using and honing in on. With acting, your child will learn memorization techniques for their lines that will make the process even easier in the future. Whether it’s studying for an exam or flexing their memory muscles in life, they’ll thank their acting classes for helping them develop a superb memory.
Acting requires you to understand what the other person is saying and react accordingly to it. This requires a great deal of empathy and understanding. Your child will develop and strengthen these emotional intelligence skills through acting with their classmates.
