Student Blog: Doing theater as a senior student
August 24, 2022

For the last few years, I’ve been learning a lot about theater in general and falling in love with plays and musicals that I didn’t know existed. And it was until this summer, that I decided to join the production company at my campus; otherwise I would regret wasting that time on my last year.

Student Blog: My Top 5 Favorite Summer Musicals
July 26, 2022

Maybe the musicals in this list aren’t exactly summer musicals, but what I love about them is that if I’m listening to them, I could feel like the main character during these hot days and I think that’s all we need sometimes.

Student Blog: I saw Urinetown The Musical for the first time
June 21, 2022

'I really saw myself in Bobby, because he’s a dreamer, but also is scared to take that step, and for me it’s theater, cinema and every story I read, see or every experience that I have in my life that inspires me to take action and makes me keep going.'

Student Blog: The Spring Awakening reunion, Was Something I Didn't Knew I Needed
May 17, 2022

I could talk for hours and hours about why I think this as a play or a musical should be something that every teenager should watch, listen or read, because nowadays art can save lives.

Student Blog: Better Nate Than Ever, The Movie Of The Month
April 21, 2022

If you are a fan of musicals, if you dream about seeing your name in the marquee on a Broadway show, if you have a kid that wants to be an artist or if you think you have no chance to be a star (in any way) on the theater or entertainment world, you need to watch Better Nate Than Ever.

Student Blog: Theatre in my city
March 29, 2022

It’s been not a long time since I became a theater fan, even though I’ve learnt many things with my experience as part of the audience and with my perspective as a student of a career that involves art, I’ve got to reflect about theater in my city: Mexico City.

Student Blog: Hello, Senior Year
February 22, 2022

This year will not be easy, but I’m sure it will be great. If you’re a senior, congratulations, we’re almost done, but we still have ten months left, and if you’re not, you’re lucky, write your own story and enjoy every minute.

Student Blog: My Return to the Theater
January 12, 2022

I loved The Prom and if I could, I would watch it again and again and again, because to bring this great story to life, they needed an exceptional company and they found it. Every time they were on stage, they gave everything and brought this magic that we can only see in the theater. I'm glad and proud that here in Mexico City, we have plays and musicals with this quality, made with effort, passion and love.

Student Blog: Watching West Side Story on the Big Screen
December 20, 2021

I've been waiting for this movie since last year and last weekend I went to the movies and it was the best way to start the end of this year. West Side Story is a musical that we've seen everywhere through the years and it's a classic that has a place in our hearts, so as a fan of musicals, watching the remake directed by Steven Spielberg was a great experience from when I saw the first teaser months ago, to the end of the movie with all the emotions that it made me feel.

Student Blog: tick, tick… BOOM! - A Letter for Artists
November 23, 2021

Since the announcement in 2018, I've been waiting to see the tick, tick... BOOM! movie adaptation, last weekend I finally watched it and let me tell you that I absolutely loved it. Even though I was not sure if this musical was going to be amazing as a movie, I was very excited but actually had no expectations, the things I knew were that it was going to be directed by Lin-Manuel Miranda and that the main character would be played by Andrew Garfield, but the way it surprised me, made it one of my favorite movies of the year.

Student Blog: My October Playlist
October 19, 2021

Autumn is finally here and what I love the most about this season, besides Halloween, is going on walks or driving alone on my way home and listening to songs that made me feel like the main character of a fall movie. I'm sharing with you my 2021 Autumn playlist that has songs from Hamilton, spooky tunes and also some of my favorite songs at the moment. Enjoy!

Student Blog: Watching Come From Away for the First Time
September 20, 2021

I don't know if you already knew, but Come From Away the musical is now available on Apple Tv, I watched it for the first time and I wanted to write about it because even though I didn’t watch it in a theatre on Broadway , it was worth every minute.

Student Blog: Let's Talk About Cinderella
September 7, 2021

It’s 2021 and we already have a lot of Cinderella remakes that have tried to give a modern twist, show another perspective or vision of this classic but someone decided that the world needed another Cinderella movie that could work as a Jukebox musical. I had no expectations for this movie, but I ended up enjoying it. It made me laugh, sing and had a good time with a story that even though it had been told hundreds of times, the vision of Kay Cannon made it fresh and perfect for a movie night with your family, your little cousins or your friends.

Student Blog: What I Loved About ¡Schmigadoon!
August 23, 2021

The show could've been a disaster if they didn't do two things right: choose the right people and decide that the only point of the story would be to make you laugh, and thank god they made good choices. Since the first time I watched the trailer, I was so excited about the cast, I mean we got Kristin Chenoweth, Dove Cameron, Aaron Tveit, Jane Krakowski, Ariana DeBose, Jaime Camil, Ann Harada and more together! And even though I love everyone, my favorite characters were Melissa (Cecily) and Emma (Ariana).

Student Blog: Thoughts on HSMTMTS Season Two
August 5, 2021

I was so excited for High School Musical:The Musical: The Series season two, more than I thought I would be, I mean last season really surprised me with the cast, the amazing original songs and the way they made High School Musical work as a TV show, it felt fresh, original and special, but now that season two is over, I have a lot of thoughts. The plot changed a little bit, but we have the same cast and the same style so, that was not a problem, but from my point of view something felt different and at first I thought I was expecting too much because I loved season one, but with every episode my excitement went down.

Student Blog: Never Doubt Your 'Little Voice'
July 26, 2021

I find this show so inspiring because sometimes we are trying too much to fit or to follow our plans that maybe we're missing to have fun, enjoy the ride or we're not looking other ways to get where we want, and I think maybe it's because we doubt ourselves, which is normal but sometimes that little voice inside us has the answer, so we have to learn to listen to what it says and never doubt it because deeply in our hearts we know what we want and that voice will leads us to that.

Student Blog: 5 Movies for Your Summer Movie Nights
July 8, 2021

In summer, I enjoy everything I watch more because as students school's out and we have at least one month without worrying about a thing, so if I watch a really great movie probably later I'll be painting something or discovering new artists because of the soundtrack or reading the novel that inspired what I saw.

Student Blog: What 'In the Heights' Means to Me
June 21, 2021

After finals week, I finally got to see the “In the Heights” movie and it was the best way to begin my summer, but this musical actually got my heart long ago, when I listened to the soundtrack for the first time.

Student Blog: Self Love Can Change Everything
May 27, 2021

We’re trying to fit in the world that surrounds us, but that world it’s just part of the real one, that made me understand that if I start taking care of myself and loving myself today, tomorrow I’ll overcome things easily, and be sure that I’ll be able to keep going no matter what.
