Acting class, Day 1: Who said anything about aerobics?

I have attended college-level classes for decades—and I can honestly say this is the FIRST time I’ve ever heard an instructor refer to students as “fu_ _ ers.” So right off, I can see there’s going to be a language barrier. J  

What I’ve also discovered is that normal classes meet in standard classrooms—the kind where they have sufficient lighting and heat in the winter. But ACTING classes meet in large stage areas and auditoriums where, apparently, they only turn on the heat for paying ticket holders. When the instructor shows up wearing a down-filled parka, three layers of clothing and a winter neck scarf, it’s never a good sign. In fact, I’d call that “foreshadowing.” 

In my diction course, I was told to purchase a yoga mat and to wear workout clothing and athletic shoes to class. Honestly, I did not know that speaking could be this strenuous.
