Here is a description of the class:
*Become a better listener (to others and to your own ideas!)
*Learn to access your playful nature!
*Find your funny!
*Brush up on Improv skills and meet new people in your community!
Improv Chops- We will cover the basic “rules” of improv such as listening, Yes-Anding, and finding truth in comedy through a series of improv games and exercises over 5 weeks. We will explore the two-person scene. This course will culminate in a performance open to the public!
