    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    She's an amazing professor and actress, motivating us as students to speak up and break out of our shells. Always offering positive criticism and alternatives. Making the class room feel comfortable for everyone who enters.

    Meeting my class mates and seeing all of the different acting styles, hearing the different reasons for wanting to act. I learned to be bold and unafraid to speak infront of a crowed or to preform.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the work, study your lines commit to the part and spend at minimum 2 hours working on your lines. Go over your lines in front of someone and ask they'er opinion. Connect with classmates and network!

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It's a great class to let loose from all of your stressful classes! You get to explore your creative side and enjoy what other's come up with. It's like getting credit for watching t.v. Kirsten is a great prof that tries to get you out of your shell, even if you have zero experience acting.

    Course highlights:

    Our improv activities were really fun and allowed us to get our creative juices flowing. But even when we were performing scenes and monologues we had some creative freedom. Kirsten gives you feedback on how you can improve but at the same time is all about letting actors make choices. She did a great job of teaching us both emotional recall and expressing our emotions through our bodies. She also taught us how to audition so if you really want to pursue acting you know how to present yourself.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to be able to free yourself of inhibitions, it's supposed to be fun! Nobody's judging you because honestly the crazier you are the more fun it is for everyone.
