Does anyone in here take acting classes or has taken any?

I think doing something like this can help an SAer become more comfortable in public.

Please share your experiences if you have some. (positive or negative)

I've never taken acting classes but I've done some theater acting. I did one play in high school in which I played the lead (The Importance of Being Earnest). I then did 3 plays in college over the 2 years I was there, playing big comedy relief parts.
Unfortunately while I wasn't afraid to be on stage (because I was being someone else?) it had no effect on me in my regular life. Many actors were actually very shy people who pursued acting thinking the same as you but it doesn't make you less shy in real life, an example would be Robert De Niro who is very shy in real life.
