"This course helped me understand the proper language and terms to use in technical theater. It can be difficult to explain your wants & needs to a lighting or sound designer, but this course showed me how to bettercommunicate with all production team members. I really liked how I was able to find ways to apply my learning into my own daily classroom routine as well!"
"I gained a greater appreciation for lighting design as a choreographer. I may not be able to create or execute the effect that I want, but I am much more aware of how lighting can influence choreography. I also enjoyed the production timeline project -- it was really great to see how other teachers and educators structured their timelines. I feel confident in using a production timeline for my role in the three shows I am working on this school year."
"I feel more prepared to start my studio's first dance recital."
"As a teacher, we don't always have a role in the behind the scenes stuff that was gone over in this class. I feel like I now have a basic understanding of the theatre and how to put together a show. I look forward to putting the knowledge I gained into action to learn more."
"I really liked that a lot of the assignments gave tools to use with our students and ways to help them interact with material."
"I got very good ideas and suggestions from the professor and fellow students."
"Helped give me curriculum ideas for my dance classes and to share with my stagecraft colleague."
"There was a great balance between content given & then being able to sculpt each unit towards our own individual needs."
"I like the material that was chosen for this course. The resources really helped."
"It is something that I can put into practice right now and this school year!"
