Curious to know what acting classes for teens are like?
If you've visited this website for some time, are serious about finally getting your acting career moving and have really used the information here to the best of your ability, then you surely already know about the importance of taking acting classes and of the 23+ benefits of taking them. If you are a teenager, who is looking to start acting, I have found one of the best acting teachers for teens in the country to explain to you what acting classes are like at his school in Los Angeles. His name is Gary Spatz and he has been teaching kids and teens acting and coaching them for more than twenty-five years. Watch the short video clip here to the right.
Speaking of acting classes for teens, it's interesting to note that many young students who start to study acting, as is the case with adults as well, don't ever go on to do big things in the acting world. However, the benefits from studying acting are noticeable by those who take them as well as to the people they most often spend time with. Studying acting can help you overcome shyness, increase your self-esteem, feel more comfortable when you have to speak in front of a group of people and overall, they can help you feel more comfortable in your own skin.
Why am I telling you this? Because I know that there are many young people with stars in their eyes and who want to become famous actors, much less just working actors, which would be a success in itself. And knowing that, I just want to say that when you embark on this mission in the wonderful world of acting, if you put your heart into it, it will help you grow in ways that you can't imagine. Acting classes for teens will help you tremendously to grow and broaden your knowledge of yourself.

I want to say you changed my life. I want to be an actress so bad, but i began losing motivation when I couldn't figure out what to do. And then I found you! Thanks to you, I'm taking my first acting classes next month! Yippee!
