About the Course

Maybe you’ve just finished the 8 Week class and you’ve got the basics down pat.  You even have a SHOW under your belt! Where do you go from there? You advance … to Advanced Improv! Or, maybe you’ve been improvising for a while and find you’ve hit a plateau and feel like you need a little refresher. Where can you find something like that? You advance … to Advanced Improv! 

In this class you will grow in creativity, risk-taking, and confidence. You will put the joy, laughter, and playfulness at the heart of what we’re doing into practice. You will fully advance from improv as an individual to improv in conjunction with others The skills we will teach in this class include:

  • Avoiding self-judgment
  • Consent
  • Developing point of view
  • Forming alliances
  • Learning how and when to pivot, shift
  • Heightening
  • Fully listening, fully responding
  • Providing support (both onstage and off)
  • Using more than just words — also body, face, action
  • Subtext
  • Character
  • Adding
We have tailored our curriculum carefully to make sure it’s relevant and fun for experienced players. If you’re looking to take your improvisation to the next level and be challenged in a fun, safe, supportive environment, you’ll find our Advanced Improv Class exciting and affordable. Class meets Monday or Tuesday.
