Foundation-Level Improv Course
| Instructor: Laura Manasewich|
Special Twice-a-week Intensive Session
Saturday evenings (4pm to 7pm) & Monday evenings (6:30pm to 9:30pm)
Where: Sea Tea Improv Studio
Using the fast-paced energy of short-form improv, students will learn how to explore and manipulate the game of the scene. Players will understand how to find and play patterns within the game, manipulate and heighten the suggestion of the game and to play to the top of their intelligence. This course ends in a share performance for an invited audience.
Prerequisites: None. People with no improv experience will learn basics and more, and people with some improv experience will benefit from this course’s specific attention to the topic of “The Game”.
