In this class you will explore the improvisational storytelling principles of Characterization and Environment which include playing with point of view, physicality, how to build the space, finding the game, heightening, status and more. Learn how to make strong choices for yourself and hold on to them while supporting the choices made by your scene partner.

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.
