About the class
Expand your improv artillery! Discover the different dimensions of character inside yourself, on the spot! Drawing from theatre and improv methods, you'll explore a new realm of character types, with emphasis on theatrical, believable, and "real world" characters. Continuing to build on the characters in your repertoire, we will focus on breaking bad habits, self awareness, and creating good scene work. This workshop is absolutely the most fun you'll ever have. Requirements: Level 2 improv or equivalent experience.
