ADVANCED IMPROV COURSES

Level 2 IMPROV: ADVANCED IMPROV 8-WEEK COURSE

Improv expands on fundamentals learned in Level 1 Improv in the same warm, safe and supportive environment. Continue building self-confidence and exploring creativity while engaging in a higher level of the “yes, and…” concept. Play short form improv games while also learning the foundations for solid scene work in a co-creative space that highlights reacting in the moment, giving and taking focus, active listening and failing with grace in an unscripted environment – on stage and off. Class culminates in a student showcase.

Level 3 IMPROV: CHARACTERS, EMOTIONS & RELATIONSHIPS – OH MY!

Level 3 Improv takes the “yes, and…” concept and directs it to building strong characters, connecting through authentic relationships and developing emotions that heighten scenes. Play short form improv games, continue developing scene work and begin to stick your toes into long form improv waters.  Class culminates in a student showcase.
