Mime Techniques Revealed

Much to the shock of everyone in my high school, I joined the school mime troop even though I was also Varsity captain of the wrestling team among other things. People had a hard time wrapping their head around how someone could be a jock and the lowest form of nerd in the school at the same time. Still, there is a lot to be learned from mime that applies to other forms of acting. To this day I am better able to express things through simple body language even when I might not otherwise be able to communicate effectively. It is great for any acting you want to do as well.
