Sea Tea Improv Studios
11 Asylum St, Suite 402, Hartford, CT

Learn to create completely improvised comedy scenes and characters by working with others!

Students in this class 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 and consistent characters, and learn to create a playable environment with just miming. This course ends in a share performance for an invited audience at Sea Tea Comedy Theater.
