    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to everyone, because acting allows you to become comfortable with interacting with others. It also helps those who have a fear of speaking in front of others. This course is excellent for anyone who wants to peruse a career in public speaking!

    Course highlights:

    There are several highlights to Intro to Acting. For instance, a major pro to acting is that you are given the opportunity to be whoever you would like to be. When you are on stage, you are no longer you, you are now the character you are playing. This allows an escape for those who no longer want to be the nerdy kid, but rather the coolest kid in high school. In that, you play characters who differ from your normal self and, as a result you become more comfortable with your own personality when that play is over.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to anyone who wants to take this course is do not be afraid to be different. In acting, we embrace those who are different, and those who are not afraid to be goofy. There is this saying that I have heard several times throughout my years of acting and that is, "If you feel silly, then you are doing it right."

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Any kind of acting class is good for the schedule and for the person for it allows some learning outside tradition pen and paper. We are always up and around learning new ways to act and no one judges anyone because we all have different techniques that are interesting.

    Course highlights:

    Through this course I learned how to just take a stand in what I am doing. Its easy to think that you are wrong and decide not to perform. Instead we think about how many different ways there is to accomplish one goal and that your way will be different than everyone else and that does not mean it is wrong at all.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    You do not have to be a theatre geek or anything of that kind. Many students in my class are actual afraid of public speaking and have stage fright. This class is to have fun out of your comfort zone.
