Discovering Shakespeare

Theatre was always a big passion of mine but I didn’t know the skills or what it took to become a true actor. Each time I experienced drama, I’ve wondered how did these actors (or actresses) get to where they are now. I realized, every single actor goes through Shakespeare training. Learning Shakespeare is an art, to give you an understand of where all styles of drama originated. In this Ignite Week, I have learned the basic fundamentals of Shakespeare and his influences on us. As I explored this area, I began to understand the impact that Shakespeare has on theater. I learned how to communicate better with my cohorts, as well as collaborating and working together as one. If I could redo this week, to start new, I would defiantly have strived to be more confident when I act, for it has shown me how to speak up and express yourself.
