In what ways have you contributed to your theater program?
One of my strong areas of leadership in our theater program is in dance. Having a dance background, I am able to help by leading the dance warm-ups before our choreographer arrives, or help other students with certain dance steps… I also organize additional dance rehearsals for anyone who feels the need for extra help… I’m a leader in all aspects of theater on and off the stage. I work diligently and try to set a good example for the fellow cast members who are new to theater… I help with set and costumes as well, and know that part of my job, as an actress is to perform on stage, but also try to help off stage. I stay 100% intrinsically motivated to succeed in theater, which in turn helps motivate the cast to push themselves to their fullest potential.
