You may have heard about the rare few actors who make it big in film or theater without ever having taken any acting classes in an acting school program or some other type of training program. This situation is not the norm, and in many cases the previously unschooled actors do attend classes after their big hit, or in order to prepare for a newer role.
Why are acting classes essential? The first and most important reason is practice. Classes give you a sustained period of time to work on your craft. Besides this basic fact, a good class teaches you to hone your strengths and train away from your weaknesses. In the same way you wouldn't expect a professional athlete to make his career without ever working out, the actor, too must keep himself or herself in constant "shape" by attending acting classes.
