This class builds on the foundational skills of improvisation. Depending on the level and interests of the students, the class may cover topics like advanced short-form game play (rhyming games, guessing games, hosting, and more). Long-form topics for study include the game of the scene, heightening, pulling ideas from openings, open vs premise scenes, and more as time allows. There will be a performance during the last class.

The class will be held on Mondays beginning August 22 – October 3.  There will be no class on September 5.
