In this class you will use scene work and group exercises to explore the joy of improvisation, be more confident, trusting and graceful on stage. Learn  “Yes, and…!” until you have to say “No, thank you”. Focus on positive choices to initiate scenes, real-life and character monologues grounded in TRUTH! Students will perform The Armando for their grad show, giving improvised monologues and performing scenes based off said monologues!

*** Grad Show will be held Sunday, May 5th at 12:30pm in The PIT Loft***
