If you have always wanted to be an actor but were unsure how to start, the first thing you must learn is how to be a good actor. Taking part time acting classes can be a great way to improve your acting skills.
Acting school can be very expensive. Many people do not have the time or money to attend acting school; however, part time courses are much more manageable. Not only are they less costly, but they allow you to fit other things into your life, such as a job and spending time with family.
Start by contacting your local community college or university to inquire if they offer acting classes. The drama department will likely offer these courses. You may also be able to take these classes at your local community center where you can meet other aspiring actors.
