Improv for Everyone
September 10 - October 22, 2018
If you are new or want to tune your tools, our introduction to improv concentrates on connections and how to stay grounded. We’ll focus on character creation, object/environment work, and most importantly, working as an ensemble. We believe improvisation can be used in everyday life; whether you are performing on the stage, priming for an audition, or connecting with co-workers.
