    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend Acting 101 to every student in college because it gives each student an opportunity to show one another what they're capable of whether it involves acting, dancing, or just having fun! As cheesy as it may sound, Acting 101 can very well be made into a perplex class (in a good way!) While some may think acting is just a fun hobby, others take this class, and theatre in general, as a way to express themselves in life.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course included the use of pantomiming. Pantomiming is when one does an action without actually holding anything in their hand. For example, if one wanted to light a candle, the student wouldn't actually have to hold a candle, but they would move their hand/arm in a forceful manner to demonstrate the action of lighting that candle. I learned how to properly develop a scene with just physical actions and how to enhance my emotion with no dialogue at all.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    While going into this class, students do not necessarily need any background experience when it comes to acting. I will say, however, that this class requires focus and understanding. If a student reads a book while daydreaming about what they ate for breakfast, a crucial scene in a play could be wasted and the story would lose its effect. Also, come to class ready to look crazy sometimes (it's a good thing!)

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course, even if you're not a theatre major. It really helps when it comes to public speaking and performing as well as building your self confidence. You do a lot of hands-on activities but it gets to become a lot more fun when you do them. This was my favorite course and if I had the chance to retake it, I would.

    Course highlights:

    I gained self confidence and public speaking skills, more importantly! I learned how to work with others in creating scripts; I've also learned how to accept constructive criticism in order to better myself. Additionally, this course taught me to be motivated, committed, and open-minded.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Presenting in front of others may be uncomfortable at first if you haven't done anything relating to performing but you should use this course as an opportunity to practice your public speaking skills. Some classes may be large and some may be small, but using them as a starter really helps. Never hesitate to step out of your comfort zone. You never know what you're capable of until you try.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I have never been an actor in my life, but this class showed me exactly how to start acting. Donna Fox is one of the best teachers that I have ever had. She is very relaxed and understands that the students may be nervous‚Äč because it is their first real acting experience.

    Course highlights:

    I have gained an immense respect for actors and their performances. I learned how to memorize lines and how to control my actions in order to portray another personality.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try your best and don't wait until the last minute to being memorizing.
