Acting again: first impressions

So yesterday I had my first acting class. Well, I had acting classes before but this is the first acting class of this course. And it is the first I had in six years. I don't want to write a long post now, I will blog more about it and in more details later, although I don't want this blog to be only about this acting course. Here are some first impressions:

-I knew acting was very physical, but I never felt it as much as yesterday.
-From Montreal to here, it seems that acting students fit into similar categories, they are almost stereotype: the nice elderly lady, the aspiring youngsters, the shy student who does it to get some confidence, the semi-pro ones who should really carry on and of course the pathetic failed actor who did not develop his talent when he should have had (that would be me).
-Being in a a large, old room with lots of history and character sure makes the experience all the more enjoyable.
-Knowing how to make mayonnaise can be a useful way to learn about acting (yes, I will blog more about that).

Au moins, tu as fait du théâtre après le dernier camp musical. Eugène le maladroit fut mon premier et dernier rôle sur scène.

Hey Guillaume...I've been on a bit of a self-imposed hiatus from the blog while I get the things in order around here. So I am way behind on commenting. Glad to see that you enjoyed your first class. I hope you continue to flourish in your class and share with us your experiences! Be well my friend! :o)
