Dont Major for the Money
June 10, 2012
Georgetown’s University’s Center on Education and the Workforce published a study in 2011 which surveyed the value of college degrees.
It also clearly proves artists don’t get their degrees for the money. We study for our sanity, we do it to better understand and digest humanity, to practice restraint and humility, we do it for the chance that we will make a positive difference in someone and start a chain to pay it forward. I love that feeling during a rehearsal between warming up and running the characters; when your body is tingling and you feel centered and ready to do/be/react-to/explore anything and anyone. Throughout the process your eyes are open to people, to their movement, so you can hone your own Laban efforts and seven viewpoints into a definitively different character than yourself.
