Long-Form Improv: Students will practice the art of long-form improvisation by learning the key concept of “Yes, and..”. They will also learn important improv skills like: listening, creating characters, establishing relationships, exploring scenes with objects, and environment work. Integrating more advanced concepts, students will then combine these skills to create fully improvised scenes with a partner and discover how scenes can grow through agreement and support. The class will culminate in a live, fully improvised performance for families and invited guests.
