Acting School - May 13th 2012, 10:48 AM

Has any of you done/do acting school?
I've had a little tiny weeny bit of experience with performing doing drama at school last year, done a few musical performances and being in the school musical. I do enjoy acting and I've been doing some research on acting programs.
I've found a good one but it's $360 a term so I want to make sure it's worth it before I ask my parents (:
I was just wondering what do you do in acting school and is it worth my money?

You'll wear those shoes and I will wear that dress.

Acting school is a brilliant place to go and study.
I'm not sure what the regulations are in the us but here in the uk you need to have at least 5 years acting experience and be extremely good at drama.
It is something to look into if it is something you really want, but my advice would be to contact the school and see how much experience you need ect.
Hope things go well

Acting school can be really fun, but I would be wary of scams. If the company wants to sell you headshots, be your agent/manager for you, etc., I wouldn't recommend it. When in doubt, Google it or look it up on the Better Business Bureau website (http://www.bbb.org/us/Find-Business-Reviews/).

If all seems legitimate (since you've been doing research), make sure that it's something you really want to commit to. In some cases, doing drama in school would actually be more fun and helpful for you. But if the drama department at your school is lacking in the things you want to pursue, acting school might be the best way. Good luck with whatever you decide.
