201: Points of Inspiration

IMPROV 201 dives deep into character and relationship. Students build a toolbox of scenic initiation techniques to help scenes start off with a bang. With purpose-driven “short-form” games and finely tuned exercises, our faculty foster success through creating rich characters, heightening relationships, tackling group scenes and exploring environment. Students discover the limitless potential for scenic inspiration in each other and the world around us.

Each session ends with a Student Showcase.

This class will teach students to have confidence in their own point of view, accept even the biggest "mistakes" as gifts, become amazing team players, & communicate their ideas more effectively. The session concludes with an improv show featuring the students working with some of our cast members.
