Level 1: Improv | August 13 | Ron Hill
About the class
This class incorporates scenework, movement-based and group exercises to explore the primary fundamentals of improvisation, making you more confident, trusting and graceful on stage. Learn how to say “yes, and…,” make positive choices, initiate and commit to scenes, heighten, use tag-outs and walk-ons, and deliver real-life monologues.
The PIT’s Introduction to Improv class emphasizes creating a rich environment for your scenes, committing to your decisions and your scene partner and beginning with the body as inspiration. There will be a final graduation performance at the PIT for friends, family, and others.
Ron is a comic actor, writer, improviser and teacher based in NYC. His performance style varies from larger than life characters & premise-based humor, to emotionally grounded relationship focused humor; from reckless physical comedy, to patient, subtle and even silent humor. Ron began improvising in 2001 and has been teaching improv (in theatrical and corporate settings) since 2008. He continues to teach with The Peoples Improv Theater and coach improv teams throughout NYC. You can catch him several nights per week on The PIT stage, including during his productions of Improvised Lifetime Movie, Captive Audience: An Improvised Heist, The Ron Hill Character Show, and Ugly People (in which he improvises alongside his 9 year old daughter and 11 year old son).
He has paid to see Barry Manilow in concert. 3 times.
