As much as theatre is an art form, the act of teaching theatre is also an art form. One has to be able to work creatively, objectively, compassionately and collaboratively. We need to be able to pass our knowledge on to our students and create a safe environment for them to explore, create, and take risks. We want to encourage our students to not be afraid to fail, because most of the time true success only comes after many failures. In order to grow as a theatre artist one needs to be experimenting and trying new things, and learning from mistakes. Theatre is an ever evolving art form in which one simply cannot play it safe if they truly want to be a theatre artist.
