In-Person Level 2 Improv WED 6:30-9:00 PM

Wednesday 11/30 – Sunday 1/29

Instructor: Kihresha Redmond

In level 2 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.
