Description

Class Experience

Students will learn and put into practice the rules of improvisation.

Students will learn how to focus and really listen to partners. They can expect to learn the principles of dramatic conflict.

Most importantly, they will learn to say "yes" and find how to add on to--and not reject--others' ideas. 
I have an MFA in Directing and a certificate in clowning and commedia dell'arte. I've participated in improv comedy and taught it at middle schools, high schools, and universities for years.

My favorite moment doing improv was at a high school where I planned with one of the students in advance to argue over one of the games at the Faculty/Student Improv Comedy Night. We kept bickering over the course of the event until he ultimately ran at me, tackled me, and we rolled into the orchestra pit. It became the stuff of legends. I never told anyone it was planned and, as far as I know, neither did he.
