About the class

This class will help students to use their knowledge of the IMPROV YOUR LIFE™ philosophy as applied to scenework to create a fully-formed improvised show. Students will focus on developing stronger relationships between characters, using walk-ons and tag-outs to enrich the funny, pacing through editing, heightening scenes, three-beat structure, and making connections between scenes. Students will leave this level understanding how to perform a standard long form structure.
