Improv & Acting Classes

Please fill out this form prior to the improv classes if you are interested.
Interested in taking short form improv class for the humor impaired? Learn to play basic collaborative improv games, developing your effectiveness to improvise in the moment, at work, school or play. You will develop character, collaboration and comedy as a team player.

1st week we will work on Character, allowing people to come out of their shells and feel comfortable with other improv actors.

2nd week focuses on Collaboration, learning to cooperate with other actors in the class, learning how to lead and follow.

3rd week works on Comedy, learning to sharpen your joke-telling skills and focus on how to make scenes more comical.

4th & 5th weeks focus on Plot-Intensive and Cue-Intensive games.

6th week focuses on more specialized games and rehearsal for showcasing your talents.

Your skill level will vary, but as you gain knowledge of all areas above, you can advance and learn more by taking an advance class later if there’s enough interest and students to focus on: detail work on character, collaboration, comedy, and chemistry. Develop a strong “yes and” mentality and work on developing voice, movement, impersonations, playing a musical instrument, singing, etc. (what strengths or talents you possess.)
