Being a full time actor, you'll know how important it is to practice over and over again until you perfect your role. Some practitioners make you believe that you can only do this on the stage with people watching you, while others think that you can practice your acting skills anywhere you want.
Here are a few "unconventional" ways suggested by our experts at Kids Act LA for you to practice your acting skills.
Take dancing lessons and learn a new move or two. Why dancing? Well because it's just another way of self-expression. In a way, dancing is sort of like acting. You give out and show emotion and passion with every step and you want the people watching you to feel the same way. Check your local college or gym and sign up for a few dance lessons. It's not only good for your acting skills; it's also exercise and another talent that you can put to good use.
Talk to yourself
This might sound crazy, but talking to yourself helps you get used to what you'll be saying. This is a big plus when you're getting ready to face a crowd, camera or interviewers from acting agencies in New York. When you're alone, just grab a mirror and recite a few lines from your favorite piece or play, something that you're familiar of and look at how you speak, your facial expression, even eye movement.
Speak in public
You can't be a good actor if you can't speak properly in public. Public speaking should come naturally to you, but if you still feel afraid to get up on that stage and talk to a crowd then you're going to need a lot of help. Start by reading. Read a lot of books and read some of the phrases and words out loud. Then you can move on to orations and speeches by famous people through history. Try to perform these in public to practice how you deliver them and make it a point to practice.
You can definitely practice your acting when you're out meeting new people. I'm not saying that you play a different character when you're introduced to someone, but it's more on how you act around others. In the acting industry, you will be working with a lot of people. There are not a lot of introverts in the entertainment world so go around and meet others so you'll get used to people. Who knows, you might just become friends with someone from an acting agencies in New York that can give you a break.
This is a big plus when you're getting ready to face a crowd, camera or interviewers from acting agencies.

Many parents believe their child has a special talent and wants them to show it off to the world. Though some of these parents probably have grandiose ideas for their child and their ambition might never amount to anything, others are absolutely right on and their child has a bright future in the entertainment industry. If you consider yourself to be in the latter category and you believe your child truly has what it takes to gain fame one day, there are a few important steps you should take early on to ensure success. First, find the appropriate professionals to create a team that will support your child in their business endeavors. In addition to dealing with financial matters, you will also need to worry about public relations and finding work. A modeling agency or acting school like Kids Act LA can help you get started. These institutes guide you toward professional careers in the entertainment industry.
The first thing you need to do either for your child or together with your child is set priorities. They need to understand that until things get rolling, their job is to focus on school or just being a kid. If things take off and a career in entertainment seems like a definite possibility for their future, their priorities can shift a bit. However, it is important they plan for both scenarios, just in case. As the parent, you are responsible for keeping them on track and making sure their focus is on the right things.
When working with professionals in the industry, you want them to give you honest and accurate assessments. Some stage or entertainment parents have a tendency to get upset when agents are honest with them. They tend to overreact when negative comments are made about their child. Many would prefer dishonest answers about their child's talent, but that is not doing anyone any favors. Even if the news is that your child does not have what it takes to be in the entertainment industry, it is important for people to be honest about it. Ask the pros to be direct, so you know what to expect and what potential your child has.
Regardless of what happens, make sure your child knows there are plenty of opportunities out there. While thinking about an entertainment career, encourage them to also focus on school, learning to play an instrument, playing a sport and learning about the world around them. Working in entertainment should never feel like your child's only option. If their entertainment career takes off, they still have plenty of interests and they are a well-rounded person.
Finally, encourage your child, but do not push too hard. Make sure they know you believe in them and that you are there to support them. Sometimes they need a little push to keep them focused and on track. If you know and the professionals feel your child truly has talent, a little pushing will not hurt. However, if you push too hard, your child might end up resenting you and their career.

The pride and excitement that a parent feels when their child is up there on stage performing can be an amazing experience. Whether it is theatre, film, television, modelling ... the overwhelming sense of accomplishment for both parent and child can be very powerful. But for many, that wonderment can drive parents to overlook some of the most basic safety precautions, resulting in terrible exploitation of their child - and great harm both physically and emotionally. A parent must be perfectly responsible with no room whatsoever for error in a business where paedophiles infiltrate and thrive.
Sometimes it is the parent who has a dream for their child to be a performer and pushes their child in that direction. Other times it is a child who wants to pursue being a performer. And of course, it is often both who desire stardom. Regardless, the same rules apply as to how to keep your child safe.
So what is a parent to do? First and foremost, educate and learn as much as possible about the entertainment business and what is acceptable in the industry. Then decide if allowing your child to be involved in the industry is something that you feel is acceptable to you. Not all parents are cut out to be "biz parents", just as not all kids are cut out to be professional performers. Learning absolute safety and teaching it to your child without frightening them requires a great deal of tact and special communication skills, as well as the capability of encouraging them.
Here are just a few of the many safety precautions underlined by our experts at Kids Act LA to always adhere to:
• Never let you child out of your line-of-site. Ever. Anywhere.
• Do not take your child to meet an agent or casting director outside of a professional environment such as an apartment unit or motel room. Always meet in a professional location such as studio or office building.
• Never allow a photographer to take photos or video of your child in swimwear unless it is a professional modeling job, booked through a legitimate licensed agency and the photos/videos and monitored carefully for any inappropriate usage. Swimwear photos are NOT necessary for a child actor’s portfolio. It is not acceptable to allow a child to model in undergarments, as those products should be advertised without models.
• Do background checks on the people who will be involved in your child's career and bookings. This can be done through such websites as Intelius or PeopleSmart.
• Carefully monitor your child's internet activity. Remember that pedophiles and child molesters are abundant online and very often target aspiring child actors and models.
• Always understand and never forget that YOU are your child's first line of defense, and never rely on anyone else to protect your child.
• If you suspect anything that could be even slightly considered exploitation of a minor or illegal activity, report it to the authorities immediately. What you do not expose, will in all likelihood harm other people's children.
• And don't let your guard down just because a child's agent, casting director, photographer, producer, acting teacher, etc., is female. It may be a statistical fact that 95 percent of child molesters are male, but don't forget the other 5 percent of child molesters are female. It is best to practice the same safety precautions with everyone regardless of gender, age, race, or sexual preference.
• Do not assume that if you sign your child with a reputable talent agency and they book legit roles in films, television series, commercials, etc., that they are safe from being victimized. There are pedophiles in all areas of the business, some of whom are reputable and have not been checked out. Never let your guard down.

To this day, many actors struggle with this concept within their actor training. Many acting classes and acting courses tend to veer away from this area, as it is felt that it is very psychological.
This is an interesting standpoint for an industry that is built on revealing the psychology and lives of characters. Surely this requires the actor to delve into the emotional states within themselves to recreate those states for a character? This was what Duse did to create her outstanding body of work.
There is an actor training that does focus on emotional recreation - Method Acting from Kids Act LA Acting Classes.
Kids Act LA Method Acting lessons focus on allowing the actor to get in touch with themselves to recreate emotion, consistently. Its foundations were borne out of Behavioural Psychology, where it was established that humans react to sensorial stimulus.
During Method Acting courses, the actor spends a lot of time reliving personal memories from their past in conjunction with their senses. For example, to recreate joy, they may work on a memory where they experienced extreme joy - and relive that event by recollecting the sounds, sights, tastes, smells and feel of the event. During acting classes, the actor carries out these acting exercises to recreate the correct emotional content, as emotion in itself can only be recreated through the senses.
Kids Act LA offers courses designed to teach our children the skills needed to get an edge in the entertainment industry. In business for thirteen years we have helped a large number of child actors harness their dedication. Our children have grown and prospered with us. They have become outstanding, communicative artists who have successfully been booking work in film, television and commercials, and if looks-wise qualifying, they have obtained employment in the fashion world of print.

It is often assumed that children with a flair for the dramatic, who feel a naturally tendency to emote and who feel comfortable in front of an audience, are the best candidates for child acting classes.

Kids Act LA is an institution which specializes in any and all aspects of public speaking.
It is indeed a skill which sometimes takes years to develop. A child who is shy will freeze in front of a crowd. If she is naturally assertive, she may still not have the skills which allow for herself, as a speaker, to address each and every person in the room, and keep all the attendants interested.
When speaking to a crowd, it is paramount to keep each participant attuned and better still; hanging on the presenter’s every word. If people are not entertained, like the Kids Act LA children learn to achieve, they will likely be facing an empty room. The goal being to offer information in a powerful and effective way, when someone addresses the public, the rhythm at which the young public speaker expresses himself or herself, is extremely important. Such pace has to be mastered. The speaker has to know how to slow down. Kids Act LA graduates know exactly how to emphasize certain key words. They know how to charm and have the crowd attention riveted to their words.
As per the most assertive children, they automatically achieve their public speaking goals after proper training. The most dramatic transformation occurs when a child grows form being shy and extremely sensitive to master the fear and come across as perfectly in control of the whole presentation. Speaking to an audience should become for all types of personalities easy to master, as the shy children learn how to control their breath and use their sensitivity.
The results are always more dramatic for shy Kids Act LA children, and those of the institution’s children who are a bit active. The ability to become assertive and the focusing which are the goal for the two different types of personalities respectively is quickly achieved for the children who get accepted in one of the Kids Act LA programs.

When you find that your child can work as a child model, you will need to find ways to get them to be good at what they will be doing. Training kids for modeling as well as for acting can work well for your child if they really want to make a good career out of this. Acting Classes at Kids Act LA is just doing the same. The institution is the most specialized acting institution in all of California.
Getting child models trained for modeling jobs as well as for possible acting stints will give them more chances at jobs than untrained young models. Since looks are not all that is important when it comes to modeling, training kids for modeling jobs is probably a wise move that parents should consider. When you talk about training, this usually means teaching these kids the right kind of attitude needed when meeting with possible clients, when posing for photos, and when doing a job. Getting child models trained for modeling jobs can only be done when a child is old enough. Parents who have babies and toddler models will have to wait till their children are a bit older before they can get their children the kind of modeling and acting lessons that they might need.
Kids Act LA is teaching children how to act in front of the camera and in front of clients and thereby lets your kids Learn Acting, Voice and Speech, Movement, Camera Technique. A lot of parents think that it is necessary for them to shell out the extra dough. This is to get their kids the best possible chances to get the modeling jobs that they are trying for considering the tough competition that modeling world offers.
Aside from training kids for modeling, parents should also keep in mind that a child's modeling career can last only for a little while. There are a few exceptions to this rule though. If a child who reaches the age of 12 or their teenage years still looks young for their age, they can still work as a child model. If 10- or 12- year-old child models appear to be a few years younger than their real age, they can actually get more modeling jobs as compared to kids who are aged 6 to 8. This is because they have that look that is needed for the age bracket that the company wants but are old enough to be easily directed as compared to younger kids. One thing that older kids have to worry about when doing these younger aged modeling jobs is how their teeth appear. The older a kid is, the more adult their teeth will appear. It is therefore important for these older kids who are modeling as a younger child to wear what is called flippers. These mask the older-looking teeth of child models to make their teeth look like baby teeth.

If you are a parent who is concerned your child may end up directionless and in trouble all of the time, there are ways to set them on the right path and help them focus on something that will occupy their free time. Ideally, your child will find an activity they enjoy a great deal and they have a special talent for. Sometimes, a child hears about a friend participating in something and they want to try it too.
In other cases, they may see someone on television or in a book doing something that looks like a lot of fun. If your child has not been drawn to something on their own, you may want to suggest a few options to them and see what catches their attention. There is no sense in forcing your child to do something in which they have no interest, but if they learn about something and they express a desire to give it a shot, let them try it out and see what grows. One option is checking out a modeling agency. Modeling agencies give kids a chance to try out the profession and see if it is a good fit. For some, this turns into a long-time career that can be very profitable.
If your child has the looks to model, but also has a great personality and a lot of confidence, acting may be the right thing for them. Sometimes a child's personality is too big to be contained in print and acting gives them an opportunity to shine. A lot of communities feature children's theaters that allow kids to try theater performance. If this is not the case where you live, look into film acting and see if there are acting schools nearby. Enroll your kids with Kids Act LA if you live in Orange County, CA.
Sometimes, acting requires a variety of talent and if your child can sing, they may be able to use that skill in their acting. However, if your child is musically inclined and their talent and passion is strictly geared toward singing or playing an instrument, encourage them to explore this talent. Most communities offer professional training of some sort so your child can learn from a talented adult. Natural talent needs to be cultivated, so if you sense your child may excel at something, turn to professionals to help them grow and succeed.
A lot of young children have a desire to enroll in dance class. It may turn out to be just an activity they enjoy with their friends for a few years, but other kids realize they love the activity and they stick with it for years to come. If your child is exceptionally talented at dance, their dance instructor will probably recognize this and speak with you about opportunities that are available. If the instructor has not approached you, but you think your child may be something special, you can always strike up an inquiry with the instructor.
Finally, look outside of the art community for opportunities for your kids. If your child is athletic, they may be able to pursue a career in sports. In addition to team sports, there are individual opportunities for athletic children like gymnastics and swimming that might enable your child a chance to compete on an elevated level.
Call us 949-273-8804 for a free presentation at Kids Act LA Acting Classes, a free evaluation and you will be able to schedule your child for an exercise in personal growth, at absolutely no cost. If you are willing to spend two hours with us, we will empower your child, and change their lives forever. We will, within our open house presentation inform you, the parents, specifically about how the whole industry works.
