The positive impacts that Kids Act LA acting classes can have on any child's development are often larger than most parents expect. In most cases, a real appreciation for the benefits doesn’t usually occur until after the parents see it for themselves.
When selecting extra-curricular activities for a child, a large portion of parents are limited by money and time and are therefore faced with the decision of selecting only one to two activities each year. These decisions need careful consideration to ensure a child not only gets the opportunity to do what they enjoy but also get to experience activities that will help broaden their knowledge and skills in areas that will help them in the future.
It is not uncommon for parents to think acting classes are a chance for extroverted children to perform on stage in costume in hope that one day they will become an actor or actress. Although they are appropriate for creative children, this general thought is misguided as it misses the mark on what drama is really about and what sort of children can benefits from participating in classes. This view often leads parent's to ignore these classes altogether as an option for their child. As a result, parents can end up selecting a different activity for their child such as a musical instrument, singing or dancing.

One of the most common questions asked by the parents is, "How do I get my kids into that?"
Well there are many ways and maybe some are better than this, but below we are providing tips that are based on the experiences of our experts at Kids Act LA. So first off, let's talk about your kid.
He or she does not have to be cute or gorgeous! Most casting agents are looking for unique, or a regular neighborhood kid look. When you think about it, most commercial feature "the kid next door" types and not models. Models have their place, but usually in print work such as magazines and posters (which indecently, pay very little). Most talent agents try to fill their portfolios with different actors that represent each different kind of look, from goofy, to jock, to geek, to beautiful. A race does play into it as far as demand and requests for a particular race. By popularity, it goes White, then Black, then Latino, and then Asians. Being last in the race hasn't been problem for us, because my kid does so well on the auditions he goes on.
Personality and the ability to read and recite naturally is a big bonus. Speaking roles pay so much more. With that in mind, do NOT enroll them in acting courses, unless suggested by your agent or manager. If they do suggest, then go with the teacher or coach of the agent's choice. You don't want to severely ruin the young actor's chances by giving them a bad coach
Do not go out and get headshots until instructed to to so by your agent. Why spend the money until you need to. How then do you find an agent without headshots? Here's how we did it. Have a fried with a decent camera snap off a couple of rolls of your kid, against a plain background. Have them take headshots, and then whole body shots. Pick 2 photos, one of the head/face and one entire body that a few of your friends like (not just you), and go to your local Walmart and get about 50 copies of each.
Then go to the Screen Actors Guild website and lookup agents in your area. Call, write or send them an email asking if they are accepting or considering new talent. If they are, then send them some photos. Do not email pictures, this is frowned upon. If they like the photo's they may set an appointment for a meet and greet with you and your child. At no time ever, should they ask you for money. They may ask you to sign an exclusive contract, or pay for outside private acting lessons, but they should NEVER ask you for money. If they do... RUN!
After that, be ready to go on some auditions!
