In-Person Level 3 Improv (In-Person) 7-9:30PM EST

Tuesday 6/29 – Tuesday 8/17

Instructor: Patrick McCartney

Level 3 is perfect for experienced Improvisers who didn't practice during the pandemic & for the online students who want to begin transitioning their skills to in-person. 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.” Work on the first, second and third beats of two-person scenes as well as continuing to focus on editing by following your foot connected to your gut and heart to edit scenes at the height. 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”

In-Person Level 2 Improv (In-Person) 7-9:30PM EST

Monday 7/5 – Monday 8/30

Instructor: Chris Griggs

Level 2 is perfect for experienced Improvisers who didn't practice during the pandemic & for the online students who want to begin transitioning their skills to in-person.

In level 2 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.” The goal will be to be able to do a first and second beat of a 2 person scene using the tool of a “time-dash” either going forward or backward in time. Personal, truthful, monologues will also be part of the tool box that will benefit all aspects of life and performance. Editing will be introduced so performers know when it’s time to enter a scene and edit a scene with walk on’s and sweep edits.
