    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this class as it forces one to burst through social anxieties and insecurities one may have.

    I learnt much about acting, but more so did I learn about people - for all acting is is getting to know and portray a different person.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don,t ever be afraid to be vulnerable. That is the only way to be true to yourself and your work.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It it is such an interesting coarse! No matter if it's your major or not, it fulfills a core curriculum needed to graduate. It is a great way to meet new people and to think outside of the box . This class opens many doors of opportunity in many ways! I highly recommend this course.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to extend my comfort zone in front of my peers. The main highlight of this corse was having the opportunity to see many other students step outside of their comfort zones as well. It was a privilege to study such a unique course. I learned to appreciate fine arts and credit those who are able to inspire a career from this . Lastly, I was given multiple ways on how to study and comprehend a subject.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students to let loose and have fun with it. It is challenging for students new to this type of course, such as myself, but it's definitely a class to consider. All students are required to fulfill a creative arts credit and this one is the perfect one to take! It teaches you great learning skills, such as memorization. Aside from this, most students are overwhelmed with difficult classes and this is a stress free course to learn.

    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."
