IMPROV FOR ACTORS: Improvisation can be a vital skill for actors, even if they don’t realize it. Improv keeps you grounded in the present moment, better connects you to your scene partners, and keeps you from getting stuck in your head. It can even help with audition anxiety. We will explore some basic techniques of improvisation, fostering a safe environment of play, spontaneity, and bold choices. We will then apply these techniques to your acting work, allowing the joy of improv to infuse your character choices, scene work, and audition preparation. This class is open to actors (and improvisers) of any experience level, but will be especially helpful for actors who feel performance anxiety, who struggle to stay out of their heads, or who need some help making choices for their scene work.
