Tuesdays from 7:00 - 10:00pm, June 18 - August 6, 2015
For many people improvising is nothing less than a nightmare. If the mere thought of having to "make it up on the spot" chills your blood, makes your palms go sweaty and raises your voice an octave, this is the class for you. This fast paced, fun workshop focuses on acting, characterization, creativity and spontaneity through improvised scenes and theatre games. Emphasis is on thinking faster, making stronger choices and increasing confidence.
Whether you are auditioning for a role or a job, performing before thousands, or giving a Power Point presentation to upper level management, you will eventually find the need to improvise…so be ready!
