Our partnership with Positively Funny, Inc. continues with Basic Improv: The Fundamentals, an expanded eight-week workshop.  Students start to learn the skills needed to create strong improvised scenes. Some of these skills include building ensemble, giving and taking focus, object work, and, one of the most crucial fundamentals of improv, the concept of “yes, and.”

Students get up and play a variety of exercises and games that train the analytical side of the brain to focus on simple goals, freeing the creative side and silencing the negative thoughts that can make us freeze in performance. These games are high energy cooperation and a ton of fun to play. No previous experience is required. Students must be at least 16 years of age. Tuition is $195 for this 8-week course.

Intermediate Improv: Scene Work

Dates: January 14-March 11 (no class on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day - Jan. 21)

Day/Time: Mondays; 7:30pm-9:30pm

Location: SSCC Room 2913 - "The Green Room"

For those who have completed Basic Improv: The Fundamentals, students can take their improv talents to the next level with this eight-week workshop. Students learn the skills crucial to scene work, including emotion, listening, and transformation, as well as continuing to hone skills learned in Basic Improv. Students must be at least 16 years of age.
