Class Description


From day one you will jump into a series of fun warm ups and games designed to ease you into improv. Before you know it you will be playing scenes and learning how to heighten and explore your ideas. As the class progresses you will learn how to do 2 person scenes, group scenes, group games and how to deliver simple monologues. The class is all about fun and support. Whether you are a beginner who has never improvised or someone who has improv experience, you will learn strong fundamentals that will build your confidence, improve speaking skills and foster spontaneity
