First Acting class

In our acting class, we learned about the ensemble and practiced collaborating by mirroring.

When I was first in the class I was nervous but also interested in how the acting class will work because I didn’t have a drama class last year.

But during the acting class, we learned about naturalism and I felt the class is fun and good to enjoy that we communicate with each other by various activities and trying new things.

I’m very excited about the next class activity.

So, it’s not going to be easy.  It’s going to be really hard, and we’re going to have to work at this everyday, but I wanna’ do that because I want you.  I want all of you, forever, you and me everyday.  Would you stop thinking about what everyone wants.  Stop thinking about what I want, what he wants, what your parents want.  What do you want?  What do you want?  What do you want?
