Students in this course will learn to really listen to their scene partners, add interesting specifics & details, and progress & expand improvised scenes.
We'll use short, fast-paced improv games to learn to act quickly and spend less time worrying about making the perfect move. Invent and inspire rich, consistent characters, and learn to create a playable environment with just miming.
This course ends in a class share performance for an invited audience at Sea Tea Comedy Theater.

About the Instructor: Daniel Davidson joined Sea Tea Improv in 2013 and began teaching for the company in 2014. His improv background includes completing training programs at BATS Improv in San Francisco and The Second City Conservatory in Los Angeles, as well as numerous workshops at iO West and UCB NY. Daniel regularly teaches all of Sea Tea’s foundation classes, and has developed and taught performance-level classes including Improvised Tennessee Williams. He has lead improv-based workshops for Hartford public schoolers, UConn graduate students, and business people in suits. He created the long running Sea Tea Comedy Theater shows Serial Monogamist and Improvised Dubbed Movie, has performed in improv festivals across the U.S., and heard about improv performed by legends including Del Close, Robin Williams, and Miles Davis. Daniel believes good improv starts with listening and taking the time to pick up an improvised cup. He lives in New Haven with his beautiful off-brand Roomba.
