    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I definitely recommend this course because, it is great for students that are interested in a career in theater, or acting. The professor Ms. Peggy is great at instructing and preparing you for assignments, she also will give you a good grade if you participate in class alot, and you are there everyday and on time. She is really good, and not a hard professor at all. She really helps you learn the different acting styles.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot, the highlights I could say were how we had to remember our scripts when we were given assignments. But overall, I learned some acting styles and I learned how to put expression into my assignments while performing them.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just come to class everyday, and try to come on time. She's not hard on you if you're late a couple of times, but just try to be there on time if you can. She grades on assignments but also just on participation and you being there. So just being there and participating can get you a good grade.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because she pushes students to achieve their goals of what their characters want in a play.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were practicing my lines and memorizing them. I learned that I had to stay committed to playing my character because I shouldn't pursue my dream of becoming an actress if I'm not willing to take this class.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to take the acting rehearsals very seriously because you can fail the class if you don't rehearse your lines so many times by the time you perform your scene in front of an audience.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is great for when you need an elective and want to get away from a giant work load. This class also help's create bonds while having a great experience.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course for me was when our class had to make groups and start working on dialogues. I leaned that I am very good at using my emotion to drive and perform well.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not be afraid to step out of your comfort zone because you might surprise yourself.
