4 credits towards your status as a human being.

The concept of "the line" will be explored and discussed at length. What makes up a line, how to recognize a line, how to take your place in line, how to ask someone "are you in line?", how to be aware of those around you in general will also be discussed and the disastrous consequences to your self-awareness and subsequent descent into self-involved idiocy if you begin to cut in line will also be explored at length.

You will also learn to profile and deal with recognizable linecutter types that include but are not limited to: Guy Checking Text Messages, Baggy Jeans Hat-Backwards Manhattan Private School White Boy, Crazy Dog Lady, Insane Smelly Hungry Shopping Cart Man, Hungry Homeboy and Crew, Upper East Side Entitlement Girl (and Mother), Upper West Side Mid-Morning Bowl Smoker Dude, Nuyorican Six-Inch Nail Mami (and sometimes Papi), Angry Lonely Older Single Newly Divorced Man, Angry Lonely Older Single Newly Divorced Woman, Jersey Interloper Drunk From Clubs, Angry White Blue Balls Guy, and Conveniently Senile Grandma.

The course will wrap up with a one-day line demonstration and technique workshop. Grades will be based on performance, growth and class participation.
Because the class is run on a first-come, first-serve basis it's suggested you arrive early to secure your place in line.
