Like any skill or talent, you must begin your studies at a basic level. Acting education should begin with familiarizing yourself with your own body as a tool to relay your craft. Movement and voice classes are imperative. Learn how to hold your body for maximum breath control and healthy posture. Improv classes are also a wonderful way to learn to use your body (and mind) effectively. When studying voice, practice projection, annunciation, and breathing. Most basic or "Intro" classes will cover these skills.
