Improv is the astonishing craft of performing and living unscripted moments in class and on stage with other people who are doing the same. Students will develop the techniques of improv through fun games, exercises and practicing new skills. Everyone will learn together and will participate in creating situations that are fantastical, funny, dramatic, exhilarant and real. No one knows what will happen next, so literally ANYthing can. In other words, anything is possible. Isn’t that thrilling?
