PREREQUISITE: YOU MUST HAVE COMPLETED LEVEL 2 IMPROV TO QUALIFY FOR THIS CLASS. In the comment section of Checkout, please list when you took said classes and who your instructors were.

 

If you fail to meet the prerequisites for this course and continue to register anyway, we will have to transfer you out and add the balance as class credit, to be used for other classes.

In level 3 you will continue to focus on strong listening and reacting without interrupting your scene partner. Making sure “the beginning of your sentence doesn’t get in the way of the middle of theirs”. You will reinforce saying “Yes, and…!” Until you have to say “no thank you”. You’ll learn about devices such as the Analogous or Time-Dash scenes, and work on the first, second, and third beats of scenes. Students will continue to focus on editing by following their gut and heart to edit scenes at the height. You’ll now begin working in 3+ person/group scenes! 

Learn how to “heighten and tighten” a scene organically glued in reality to create “win-win” fun scenes to play to entertain yourself and others while “treating your partner like a genius”. You’ll also be introduced to the most widely-known Improv show format- The Harold! As a class you’ll work on performing this format of an Improv show for your Grad Show.

*** Grad Show will be held on Monday, 5/22 at 6pm in The PIT Loft***
