Jackie Arko

Jackie teaches levels 301 and 401, introducing students to what she considers to be the most challenging and rewarding long form structure: the Harold. She takes a theme-based approach to the form and pushes students to explore - and stick with - the realities they create. Her teaching style is linear, transparent, and includes a variety of hastily-drawn yet highly-informative visual aids. The passion she feels for teaching and for the Harold itself is evident from day one. Also, she swears. A lot.

Instructor:

Mike Morrell

Teaching Style: I think it's my job to make you a better improviser. If there are bad habits, let's break them, if there are weak choices, let's strengthen them, if you're doing the same thing all the time, let's play. Ill give you honest feedback that's easy to incorporate, and tell you the things I think you need to hear. I'll push you to be better and if you'd like to grow as an improviser, then I'd love to help. To check out reviews of me, go to TheMikeMorrell.com

Bio: Mike has been acting and doing comedy for 15 yrs. You may have seen him alongside Denzel Washington in the Equalizer or shredding documents in a "what not to do" training video. As for Mike's teaching, he will be honest with you about why scenes are working or not working and help you find new ways to create successful games. When not doing improv, he'll be found playing with dogs or playing with humans or playing with strangers, he loves it, so he's always playing. (Get your mind out of the gutter.)
