This fun and dynamic introduction to improv utilizes short form games and creative exercises to help students understand the all-important fundamentals of improvisational theater. If you have experience with improv already, this class provides a new perspective and an expanded vocabulary for learning. If you have no improv experience, Level 1 builds confidence, trains your brain for creative thinking, and inspires you to have fun!
Our class minimum is 6 people. Some smaller classes may need to be combined. If so, we'll ask if you can make the other date of the class and move you over. If you can't move to another date then we will refund your tuition and inform you the week before.
What Students Say About Betse: "I really appreciate the immediate feedback during scenes." She taught me that "My connection to my scene partner is far more important than any scene opening idea I might come on with". and that "An honest reaction is far more interesting than any invention."
