*Drop-ins always welcome (sign up any week throughout the semester if spots are available) This class acts as a "club," so it's perfect for students that loved my "Intro to Improv & Acting" class and want to do similar games/activities every week, or for students with improv experience looking to do it more. I strongly encourage students to take my "Intro to Improv & Acting" one-time class to get a feel for my teaching & energy to see if the club is the right fit. I do offer private group...
Students will learn how to be present, accept the unexpected, and use their imagination to create fun scenarios with each other. They will learn how to create characters, how to act in different genres, how to use props in creative ways, how to use their bodies as actors, and maybe even create their own commercials! I am constantly finding new improv games to teach online, and also revamping old ones. A lot of games and activities I have invented myself, based on the students' feedback and my experience.
I am a "working actor" outside of class, and have lots of experience in commercials, auditioning for professional TV shows/films, and writing/producing my own scripts. I am also an actor for the Murder Mystery Company, which is an interactive-based improv troupe that performs murder mystery shows around the country. I have taught in camps and after school programs for years, and one of my campers' favorite classes were improv. They love just being in the moment, creating, making up scenarios, and interacting with others. I've seen improv & acting positively affect so many kids because it really builds confidence and listening skills. Acting is a great way to get their mind off of every day stresses, and I love seeing them be able to let go, be in the moment, and have fun! I've worked really hard to create games catered to online learning, and I'm always learning fun ways to teach along the way. As always, feel free to read my full bio and watch my video on my profile page. Hope to see ya in the classroom!
No materials needed! An open space where students can do different movements on their feet is helpful. There may be a day that I have students find props around the house (like a blanket, pencil, book, etc.) to use in a scene. They are always welcomed to have props and costume pieces handy. I am also thinking about making a document of tongue twisters and warm-ups that we use for class so that students can access it any time outside of class!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
