Actors’ bodies and faces are an extension of their acting, and must align with the story they are trying to tell and the feelings they need to convey. Because of this, they must learn to be extremely aware of every position and every movement made. This awareness of body, posture and physical presence that is taught in acting classes and increased through experience is not abandoned on the stage or left in the classroom; instead, it can become an ingrained and automatic part of how a person carries themselves, exuding grace, confidence and poise in their everyday lives.
HOW THEATER HELPS KIDS EVERYDAY
Through performances, rehearsals and class exercises, acting requires the ability to collaborate with others and to work as a team. From learning the basics of the trade to perfecting your skills and performances, learning to act requires sharing thoughts and ideas, giving and receiving a lot of constructive feedback, and supporting your fellow actors and classmates as you work to make each other better in a safe and supportive environment. Having experience in working as a helpful member of a team can translate into success in countless other aspects of your life in addition to acting.
Whether you’re center stage in front of a captive audience, or on a set with all cameras focused on you, the high pressure situations that come along with performing in front of an audience can be excellent in helping even naturally shy people overcome self-consciousness. Even auditioning in front of casting directors or practicing performance with classmates can help to build a strong sense of confidence that will carry over into your everyday life.

In acting, a person must take on the persona and characteristics of the role they are playing. Often, the role being played is represented by feelings, viewpoints and personality traits that are quite different from the actor’s own. This means that to truly capture the essence of the character and portray the role in a believable way, the actor must place themselves in the shoes – and often inside the mind – of someone whose viewpoints may be foreign to them so that they can understand them. This is a skill that is incredibly beneficial in all aspects of life, from interpersonal relationships to business negotiations to conflict resolution of any sort.
