    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was fantastic! I absolutely adored our professor, Heather, and I learned so much about acting technique and expression through physicality.

    Course highlights:

    We started each class with a physical warm up, led by our professor in the first few weeks and then led by our fellow students as we became more experienced. Heather always had an exciting new exercise for us to try, or a concept for us to discuss, or some sample plays which we could read through and draw material from to perform. We had to complete a monologue performance as a midterm, and a scene performance with 1-2 other students in the class as a final exam.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Love your craft! This 8:30am class will seem like a hassle if you heart isn't in it. Go to every single class unless you can't possibly make it, and PARTICIPATE.
