Pretty easy, overall.
This isn't just a course, but a way of life. Here, you're free to be yourself without any judgement. The stage is your friend.
I've learned that there's always a goal. The obstacle is what stands between the actor and pursuing the goal. You must push through at any cost to assure that the actor gets what he/she wants. This principle also applies to life. Obstacles don't negate possibilities; they're there to pull out the strength you thought was impossible.

Advice for students:
It helps being open minded. The first week was petrifying due to the fear of public speaking. However, when I signed up for the class, I knew that there was a goal that I was after. The goal was to become better at speaking in front of people. There's more to the class than simply acting. It takes mental work when preparing for productions. Don't be afraid become the character!
