ADULT ACTING CLASSES BEGINNING THIS FALL!
Beginning Improvisation for Adults
Explore and practice the skills and techniques required to perform short-form improvisation. The course utilizes the communal/ensemble exercises provided in Spolin's 'Improvisation for the Theatre' and other texts, to explore spontaneity and the creation of narrative improvisations. The course also explores concepts of character, behavior in the environment, creating the who? what? and where? of dramatic scenes, created from given circumstances. The course is primarily active and participatory in nature and culminates with a public performance based on this exploration and discovery.
