5. How Do You Go About Choosing The Right Acting Classes?
It's not just about choosing acting classes, it's about choosing the right acting classes for you. You might want to check out a page on actingcareerstartup.com where I wrote extensively about this and about the importance of having criteria when choosing your school and I tell you what my particular criteria are. It might help you in choosing acting classes in the USA.
Just remember that first of all there are different techniques. A lot of new actors, just like I did when I first started taking acting classes, think that the acting technique is method acting and thats not true. Look around, inform yourself. And believe me, there are different teachers!
I started studying acting in a theatre company in Milan and when I asked them what the technique was, they told me that it was a mix. I then studied with a woman who used a very interesting book called, Inner Work by a guy named Robert Johnson. It was all based on dream work and extracting the emotions from your dreams to use in scenes. Some like it, but I found it to be very laborious and complicated. I didnt get results quickly. Then I found the Meisner technique and I love it! Its easier to apply and faster for me to get results and be real. I like my teacher too, which is a plus and her school, Ward Acting Studio. She has several foreign students each year studying there. Last year there were even two girls who came from Japan with an interpreter. The girls had won a free trip to New Y ork for a few weeks to investigate acting classes in the USA.
