Acting Workshops - What Do They Have to Offer?

Acting workshops often provide you with similar skills as drama class but they're taught by professionals who know what it's like to try and break into the acting game. You'll learn great auditioning tips, improvisation skills, how to work on your stage presence, and techniques to get more comfortable in front of the camera. Even if you've starred in your school's drama productions, it always helps to flex your acting muscle with new peeps in fun, new situations.

Acting Workshops - Who Can Take Them?

There are tons of acting schools across North America that offer a variety of classes and programs to everyone interested in the biz. Some schools may only offer summer programs for teens, while others have weekly classes. Teen classes are usually open to peeps ages 12 through 18, and there are specific kid classes for the 7 to 11 age group too. This way you get to interact with students who are at the same acting level as you!

Acting Workshops - How Much Do They Cost?

A four to six week acting workshop ranges from around $200 to $400 US. Most workshops will have classes once a week for a couple of hours per class.If this seems too pricey, see if the school of your choice offers drop-in classes or discounted programs. You could also find your own teacher to help you learn how to act.

I'm not sure whether you have actual depression or not (Ask your doctor if you feel you do, they'll be able to help. ^^), but I'm really sorry you feel depressed. I've been there too, and it really does feel like no one cares.   I know you said it's awkward, but try talking to your dad about it. You said he's the only one who seems to listen, so I'm sure he will listen and try to understand. If you start feeling really depressed every day, try doing things to make you feel happier. I don't know what you like to do, but you should do things like relaxing, reading, talking to people and spending more time outside. Smiling more often can help relieve stress and make you happier as well. c: Try meeting new people too. It seems as though your current friends are bringing you down, so you can try to talk to them if you like or find more friends who'll listen and care about you (however, try to keep your old friends as well. They are your friends after all, and it's hard being lonely). You've got friends on here too. But please don't think about doing anything harmful to yourself. You might not be thinking like that now, but being depressed can lead people to this and it's really not the answer.  Good luck! ^u^

I know what its like to feel depressed. And its hard to get out of it. Try thinking of good things, and if you are feeling lonely and have no friends around then you can talk to me if you want :3 When you start feeling depressed, try doing things you like, going out to a park or somewhere to be alone and just relax. Maybe go on walks once in a while. And even if people don't seem to care about you, I do :) So if you start feeling worse you can chat with me. Try not to think of dangerous things like suicide or cutting yourself or even running away though because it may sometimes seem like it could be the answer but it really isn't it'll make your life worse and more messed up. I hope you feel better soon! :D
