Improv Level 2: Beginner
5 Week Course
Beginner level 2 works with Basic Scene Work: students will learn to use truthful emotion, how to listen to understand, rather than listening to respond, learn toreact to others in the moment, as well as to continue to hone skills from level 1. Students will also begin their self exploration through identity work which includes knowing themselves through physical, social, psychological and emotional aspects. Students will explore their 5 senses to activate them to their true potential, as we tend to do a lot of activities in a mechanical routine.
What you can expect:
>You will play games and learn basic rules and do exercises.Most of what you do in an improv class is in a group and most learning will be done by doing games, exercises and scene work.
>You will have so much fun and will laugh a lot. Yes, you probably are scared, but trust us, you are going to have fun. You don’t have to be funny. I think a lot of people who are taking their first improv class think they have to be funny, no you don’t. You are there to play and work as an ensemble with the other students.
>It is 100% Normal to be afraid. Being scared is ok and natural. Don’t use this as an excuse to quit or think that there is something wrong with you. Fear is good. It means you’re trying something new!
>You don’t have to want to do this for a livingThat is right, you don’t have to want to be on SNL to take an improv class. Learning how to be more silly, spontaneous and outgoing is a great skill to learn at any age in life. Improv will improve your active listening skills, focus, concentration, reduce anxiety and depression, increase brainstorming abilities and so much more!
>You will make friends with similar peopleOur students always make great friendships in our classes. You work together with like minded people creating an art form. Warning: Sometimes the people you meet in improv classes can become friends you’ll have for life.
