For a description of this class, please see the ELECTIVES page.

A diagnostic look at how to be an effective improv director and coach. We will look at how to successfully implement a vision for a short-term show, a long-term ensemble, a veteran team or a group of new improvisers by breaking down every aspect of the directing process from auditions to rehearsals to notes. Every student will step away with ready-to-implement tools that they can put into use immediately.
