New Apps for Your Improv Scenes

In this four week workshop, we will download some new apps that you can use in the middle of any scene to make it better. These techniques will make your so-so scenes good and your good scenes great. You’ll learn to better connect with your scene partner by noticing their emotions and behavior and by reacting from your gut. You’ll also learn a variety of tools to add texture, detail and spontaneity to your scenes.

How the Class Will Work:

The regular class meets from noon to 2:45pm each Saturday. There is a bonus practice hour immediately following the class from 3 to 4pm. The bonus hour is a chance for you to do as many scenes as we can pack into an hour, so that you can practice what you have learned. I’ll be playing along with you, and I’ll be videotaping the scenes so that I can review them later and send you notes via email after the class.
