Why take a group class?
Group Classes Provide Children with More Than Just Fun!
Even if your child doesn’t dream of being a performing artist, you may still want to talk to him or her about taking classes; That’s because these classes aren’t just for budding actors. In fact, there are a number of different ways that acting classes for kids are beneficial to young people.
Young Artists Learn to Be Adaptable
Group classes teach kids to adapt to changing situations. This allows them to be less reactive when new things come up, and be more apt to accept change, both on stage and in life. This flexibility and adaptability are highly sought after skills in the working world as well. This can give your child an advantage on the stage, plus an advantage when it comes to getting a job when that day arrives.
Young Artists Gain Self-Confidence. Getting up in front of people and acting is not always easy, especially for children who are shy or uncertain of themselves. But doing it once can help them get past their stage fright. The more they act, the more confidence they will gain in themselves. They will see that acting is something they can conquer. This lesson can be applied to many different areas of life.
Friendships Formed During Acting Classes for Kids Can Last Well Into Adulthood
Actors are very rarely on stage alone, and even if they are, it takes a whole theatre crew to make the show come to life. Young actors learn how to work together to create a great show. When you decide to send your children to performing arts classes, they are going to be surrounded by other kids around their same age. Those children, just like your's, are going to be unique. Each child is going to bring something new and wonderful to those youth theatre classes. The influence of each child is going to make every course taught different and amazing.
Life Lessons in Theater Class for Kids
Performing arts group classes introduce the world to your child. Your child will learn necessary life lessons which will allow them to function in real life as well as in the performing world. They will be taught how to work well with others, build strong relationships with fellow students, achieve self-confidence and learn to think on their feet.
Starlight PAC's Group classes offer a wide range of benefits, but they also teach children how to work well with others. Through scene and script work, kids learn to work as a team and support one another. Another’s success is seen as a success for all. All students are taught compassion for their peers. Positive reinforcement is stressed, and negative behavior is curtailed. This trains your child to be a role model, standing up for those who may need an advocate. They see themselves in the situation and know how they would like to be treated. By taking Starlight PAC's classes, your child will grow as an individual, learning life skills to function successfully in society.
