Back by popular demand, this workshop is perfect for adults with zero experience looking to build confidence and test the waters of Improv, and even more perfect for those with experience looking to refresh their skills, all in an entertaining and supportive environment!
Using a blend of short and long form improv, this workshop focuses on building strong, sustainable, scenes to paint a realistic picture for realistic scene work without sacrificing the fun or funny! Participants will learn to trust their instincts and fellow performers, what “being in the moment” actually means, create a story without a script, make strong choices through actions, and what to do with “yes, and…” .
