Class Description

This class is all about advanced scene work and learning how to play in an ensemble. In order to master any longform you need to know how to heighten other people’s choices as well as your own. You will become the ultimate listener, multi-tasker, and team player without losing your own voice. Learn how to play group games, and scenes that are fun and actually succeed. It’s all about, “Group Mind!” Prerequisite: Magnet Level Two or equivalent.
All students will be asked to show proof of vaccination prior to the first session in order to participate in this class

Instructor: Armando Diaz

Armando is widely regarded as one of the best improv teachers in New York City and beyond. His list of teaching credits is a long one: the ImprovOlympic Theater, Victory Gardens Theater, The Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, NYU and Michael Howard Studios. He has trained dozens of actors who have performed or written for Saturday Night Live, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Mad TV, and The Daily Show.

A Chicago native, Armando studied improv under Del Close at the ImprovOlympic, Mick Napier at the Annoyance, and graduated from the Second City Conservatory. He performed in and helped create one of the most popular improvised longforms in Chicago, "The Armando Diaz Experience...." For the last decade, "the Armando" has been performed weekly in Chicago, and is now taught and performed in many other cities including Los Angeles and New York.

In addition to writing and producing short films, Armando wrote sketches for the show Upright Citizens Brigade on Comedy Central, and has performed on Late Night with Conan O'Brien.
