PLAYING WITH IMPROV
This intro to Improv class is great for anyone who is just beginning with improvisation; Whether it be for a career in acting or using it for public speaking. Improv is a great tool to have on your belt. This helps us with our attentiveness, our focus, ability to make decisions on the spot, and exploring your capabilities to communicate in a more effective manner.
Improv is loads of fun. For the returning improv artist, you will see a lot of games and exercises that help us to really get back to the basics of improv. For those who have never taken an improv class, get ready to have a great time laughing, thinking quick, and ultimately surprising yourself. After 8 weeks of practice, study, and application, the class will prepare for a showcase that will be performed live in front of an audience at Skiptown Playhouse.
