This high energy class is the perfect way to start my day. I have Dale Daigle as my professor and he is laid-back, funny dude. He’s really taught me, already this semester, that being weird and spontaneous is totally ok! I love this class because I can go in there, be myself, have fun, and not be weighed down by hours of work.
Right now in class we’ve been working on acting a scene. We had to get into groups of two - I actually had the pleasure of working with one of my residents! It was pretty awesome getting to know her much better :). Then last Tuesday we had to perform our short scene in front of the class for a grade. What I love about the grades though is he mostly just grades based on effort - it’s not about being a broadway quality performer and its just about getting out there and knowing your lines. I had a lot of fun on stage with just Ellen (my resident and partner). Plus we totally nailed our lines and killed it on the acting part as well.
Today’s class was especially fun because we got to act in the personalities of our characters from the scene we chose. Then once we figured out the little things our characters would say and do, the class interviewed you. I had so much fun acting like my character because I could be someone completely different and forget about all the things Emma has to do today and focus on just my character. It was strange! Like an out of body experience.
Bottom line: Dale rocks, take him for your distribution or just become a Drama major cause he’s a hoot.
