I have been doing this Advanced Youth Acting class for a semester now, and have got so much out of it. We have really worked hard in this class but at the same time we are having fun and enjoying discovering new ways to play a scene or new acting techniques that we can use to enhance a scene and make it believable. For the first term of this semester we worked on acting technique and script work as well as using drama games to improve our focus. In the second term we started work on our two performance pieces for the end of the year. Working on these pieces has been very rewarding and i am looking forward to being a part of the final product. The advanced youth drama class has taught me so much and really enabled me to improve my acting skills.
