About the class

This class will help students take the basic elements of the IMPROV YOUR LIFE™ philosophy learned in Level One and apply them toward building great scenes that engage an audience. Students will leave this level with an understanding of how to make strong initiations, establish who/what/where, heighten the funniest choices and edit scenes.

Students will learn and practice techniques for starting scenes, enhancing and enriching scenes, finding yourself when you feel lost, and creating characters that are completely unique. There will be a final graduation performance at The PIT for friends, family and others.This class will help students take the core elements of the IMPROV YOUR LIFE™ philosophy learned in Level One and apply them toward building great scenes that engage an audience.
