Improvisation Summary

The basic course will explore the fundamentals of acting and improvisation. Small and large group activities explore and express the balance of exterior and interior life through the development of basic body and vocal techniques, sensory awareness, pantomime, public speaking and improvisation.

The advanced course offers students who have a theatrical background an opportunity to further develop their acting and improvisation skills at a more advanced level. Small and large group activities explore and express the balance of exterior and interior life through the development of basic body and vocal techniques, sensory awareness, pantomime, public speaking and improvisation.

The goal of the course is to develop the student’s concentration, creativity, individuality, and self-expression while gaining a deeper knowledge and appreciation of theatre. Students will build upon the skills learned in the first half of the course in hope of creating a spontaneous life on stage through a variety of short and long form improvisations modeled after the intro class of the UCB (Upright Citizen’s Brigade), a professional improvisational theatre/training center located in New York City.
