    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Even if you're not an actor, it's so important to learn what goes into acting.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to get up in front of people, analyze motives, not act emotions, and become more confident with myself.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It might feel boring, but just keep with it. My biggest recommendation is to find what in the course you can take away.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It is mandataory, so you dont have much of a choice. However, it is great because the class sizes are small so you get a lot of individual attention from your professor, and lots of feedback from your peers.

    Course highlights:

    Very confortable environment, everyone shared personal experience, and through that experience, one discovers new ways to act. I left the class feeling incentive to improve.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is not too difficult. However, if you want to get the best out of it, take risks whenever you can and step out of your comfort zone. You will learn a lot about your own acting styles and limitations

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Anita listens and reassures through struggles. She is always more than willing to spend time after class to help with a scene and give advice, or simply just to talk with you.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to act. Acting isn't as simple as it seems, it has so many different angles to it and Anita taught us how to approach it. I learned how to study a script by thinking about what my objectives should be, what my obstacles are, and how to translate that into actions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it. It will be tough, especially if it's your first time acting, but this is the only way to improve. You will realize that acting is more than actions; there's a lot of background to it. Think of why you're doing a certain action. Study your script, study your character. You need to be the character. But don't worry, your teacher is there to help you through all that.
