Class Description

Some Improv philosophies require every performer to adopt the same style--when these performers go on to play with someone from a different community, the result is frustration for all. This four-week master class seeks to impart longform skills that will translate to any improv stage in the world. Grounded scenes, strong characters, sharp edits, heightening, callbacks and more—when you drop into an improv show in Chicago, Atlanta, London or beyond, you’ll be prepared to play with confidence! Pre-requisite: Must have previously taken one improv class at any theater/institution.
