may find youth acting schools in your area since many of these
schools are locally based. You may be lucky enough to find one in your same city. For others, longer drives may be necessary to attend a school
in their state, or nearby state across the state line, or a big
city that is far from their small towns.
With all the
work and the “driving” to attend these classes, keep in mind
that acting does not only mean in the movies or in TV; there are
many, great opportunities for acting in local theaters, dinner
theaters, outdoor theaters, and other performing venues.
As a member
of the audience, you may appreciate “stage actors” for their
“live abilities” and movie and TV actors for their ability
to draw you in you through the camera. Acting is acting in whatever format. Some are good at “live acting” where projection is a
must while others are good at “action and cut” acting where
whispering is possible. If
you are great at both, then you are very fortunate.
