with Ann-Lisette Caveny & Cristela Carrizales

Want to be more creative and expressive or learn to generate ideas on the spot? Want to reignite your playful spirit and try something new? Then this class is for you! Level 1 introduces you to foundational improv skills in an open, supportive class structure. Learn to wow your friends with "Whose Line Is It Anyway" games while having a great time! No prerequisites required other than a desire to just have fun.



Apply what you've learned in Level 1 to begin mastering the fundamentals of long-form improv, scene work. Students will demystify what makes a scene comedic: creating and playing comedic premises and games, creating characters with distinct points of view, playing relationships between characters, and playing the platforms out in scenes. Students will learn how to initiate scenes strongly, identify what makes the scene funny, play characters with strong points of view, identifiable relationships, and create and identify strong base realities. (Needed: Level 1)




Apply what you've learned in Level 1 and 2 to begin mastering long-form improv. This class is heavy on exercises in the fundamental structural components of long-form. Students will learn to mine for audience suggestions to create show ideas, find the beats of when and how to edit,  speak monologues, heighten and reincorporate material as callbacks. You'll emerge from Level 3 with the tools and skills necessary to sustain longer pieces containing recurring themes, rich characters, and plenty of surprise and delight. (Needed: Level 1 & 2 or instructor permission)


Level 4: Playing with Real with Cristela Carrizales
Mondays, 7-9 PM
Improv is acting without a script. Apply what you've learned thus far to strip away invention in order to pace and focus on the deceptively simple task of listening and responding. In this class students will work to build rich, interesting characters and relationships by recognizing their own truthful impulses and emotions. This class includes personalized challenges and feedback, as well as the week to week reinforcement of course elements through practice and play. (Needed: Level 1-3 or instructor permission)
