Online Level 3 Improv

Tuesday 4/20 – Tuesday 6/8

Instructor: Kihresha Redmond

 

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”.

Online Improv to Sketch

Monday 5/3 – Friday 5/21

Instructor: Patrick McCartney

We’ll take your characters, premises and totally discovered moments in an improvised  set and turn them into written sketch. We’ll pay close attention to game, how to give and take as a reasonable and unreasonable person and flesh out any and all ideas you have, no matter how off the wall. We will improvise until we turn it into a written tightly wound sketch. The most fun ever. Taught by Patrick McCartney.
