IMPROV (COMEDY/DRAMA)

...a little comedy, a little drama


This 8-week class will explore the basics of improvisation and focus on the art from both a comedic and dramatic viewpoint.  Participants will learn how to think outside of the box, be in the moment, accept the offer and think more quickly on their feet.

In addition to the more familiar comedic improv structure, students will explore dramatic improvisation and engage in sociodramatic exercises.


Level: Beginners to Intermediate
