a casting director on what to look for from an acting class, and what NOT to look for

Alyson Horn, of Alyson Horn Casting, in Backstage:

If I was an actor, I would be wary of classes where the hook is about getting your tape in front of casting directors—that’s not why you take a class. You take a class to get better at your craft. The way to get in is to be good. A casting director will call you in over and over and over again if you do a great job.

True dat.
