It's almost end of term and I can't believe I haven't introduced myself!! Anyway, today I finished all my work for this class, felt the HOL nostalgia, decided to check the HOL forum, and here you have me, writing an introducion post!!
For those who don't know me, I am Professor Gustavo Flores, from Ravenclaw House! HOL has been part of my life for quite some time now! However when I reached my fifth year, real life started to get extremely busy, and since I couldn't participate with all the students activities anymore, I decided to become a professor. I really miss the good old days where I could spend time in the HOL forum and the Ravenclaw forum, but I will try to get back there, little by little.
In RL, I am Mexican and I am 26 years old! I am a high-school professor, currently teaching Spanish and Literature. I am also doing my Master Degree on Education, so studying and working at the same time pretty much eliminates all of my social and HOL life
Apart from that, I also keep myself busy because I LOVE the Performing Arts
Much of my free time is spent in dance classes (jazz and contemporary jazz) and rehearsals, and that is the reason why I decided to take this class!! I enjoy musical theatre quite a lot, and have had the opportunity to participate in some productions. In November 2014 I was part of the dance ensemble for "The Phantom of the Opera", and in May 2015 (just a week ago) I had the amazing opportunity to play Lumiere in the musical "Beauty and the Beast". This september we are having a Jazz Dance Competition coming, and in november we are doing a contemporary version of Jose Saramago´s "Blindness", which involves acting, music and dance. I passed the auditions and I will be part of the dance ensemble for this new project!! So excited!!
I can't tell how much I enjoyed this class!!! Learning about all those musicals has been great!! And I really, really, really hope we can get an Act 3 for Marvellous Musical Theatre!!!! Thanks Max for this amazing class!!!!
