Class Description

This class will reflect the moment in which we are living, staying current with all that is happening around us and inside of us. We will find inspiration from what’s alive in our ensemble and in our world with an emphasis on emotional fluency, expression and group support. This is not the class to take if you are looking to distract yourself. We will be diving into all of the feels, exploring whatever November 2020 has for us and using Improv to play with all of it. For experienced Improvisers only (Level 3 or equivalent or higher). 11 people max. Please only sign up if you are available for all four classes.

Instructor: Rachel Hamilton

Rachel is an actor, improviser, teacher, writer and director living in New York City. Rachel has a degree in Theater from Northwestern University, where she began her love affair with Improv.

Fifteen years later she is still at it, and loving it more and more with each passing year.
