Hi Tony!
Most people don’t even take the time to tell a person how to reach their goal. I want to thank you for everything and for responding to my messages. Sometimes I just test people to see if they really care about my career and you do. You can continue to send me some tips on how I can accomplish my goals, because you inspire me a lot. Thank you for caring.

Summer Acting Classes

Thinking of taking summer acting classes?

If you live in the Northern Hemisphere you will be well aware that summer is going to be upon us very soon! The summer months are a great time to take a short course in acting for a number of different reasons:

  • If you are new to acting and want to have a small taste of what it will be like to train for a career in the arts, a 4-6 week acting course at an established school can give you a good sense of what to expect
  • If you live in an area that doesn't have much going on in the way of acting and that does not offer a particular style of training locally then you can use the summer as a period of time to travel to your desired destination to attend classes
  • If you are a college or high school student and are thinking of making the commitment to attend college to train in acting a lot of colleges offer Summer Programs espehttp://cially for prospective students just like you
  • Or perhaps you are already a working professional that would like to try a new approach to your acting and your career without having to enroll in a 2-3 year program.

Summer Programs, or Intensives as they are sometimes called, are specifically set up in a way so that your hard work will allow your skills to get a lot better in a relatively short period of time. They are a great place to network with like-minded artists and can really have a significant influence on the direction your acting career takes after completing one. Before you have a look at the list below, make sure you know how to choose the right summer acting classes for you.
