Sea Tea Improv Presents an ImprovBoston Workshop with Will Luera
Sea Tea Improv is bringing Will Luera, the artistic director of ImprovBoston, to Hartford to teach a workshop on a longform improv style known as "Close Quarters" at TheaterWorks (233 Pearl Street, Hartford, CT) on Saturday, July 28th from 11AM to 2PM.

The members of Sea Tea Improv are taking this workshop, and we've got just 9 additional spots to fill, so we're telling Hartford-area improvisers about this great opportunity to join Sea Tea Improv for a workshop with this great instructor!

The cost of this workshop is $47 per person. For reference, a 3-hour workshop at ImprovBoston is $65 per person, but Sea Tea is using part of a grant from the City of Hartford that we got to bring outside improv instruction to Hartford to help cover some of the cost for CT improvisers!

There are only 9 spots, and since this is coming up very soon, the only fast and fair way we can think to offer these spots is first-come-first-served via a PayPal payment. (Note: you do not need PayPal account to pay via PayPal: you will see an option that says "Don't have a PayPal account? Pay with your debit or credit card as a PayPal guest.")

We hope to take this workshop with you!

Physical Improv (Summer Improv Workshop Series)
Instructor: Kate Sidley
Cost: $35, $30 for college students

Say goodbye to talking heads! This workshop is designed to get improvisers relaxed and comfortable with being physically active on stage. Create a realistic subway car, dive off Niagra Falls, be a gnarled tree, and get swept up in a tornado. This class will give you the tools you need to create dynamic and active environments on stage while working physically and safely with other improvisers. You don’t need to be an athlete or contortionist to be physical in improv, but with the support of your team and some basic skills, you’ll have an audience applauding your every feat. Students should come prepared to move.

Hip-Hop Improv (Summer Improv Workshop Series)
Instructors: Vladimir John Perez & Dan Russell
Cost: $35, $30 for college students

Sea Tea Improv’s Vlad & Dan will school you on what it takes to bring the ruckus to all you improv lovers. Learn comedy battle rapping, how to roast an audience member like a Beastie Boy, and how to rhyme quick on your feet. Learn to support your fellow improv rappers with beatboxing, and learn to listen to your “opponent” to dis back hard. Create a hip-hop persona that’s larger than life, but true to your steez. By the end, you’ll be selling bad rhymes, setting up easy ones, and finding the awesome connections that come when you’ve got no choice but to try to rhyme on the spot. True “Yes And” ain’t nothing to f**k wit!
