Adult Improv 

Improvisation, commonly linked to the comedic Saturday Night Live realm, is also a valuable tool every actor can use on stage and screen and anyone can benefit from for: public speaking, job interviews, the workplace, and social settings. 

This class will give performers the tools to perform without script—and be on their toes and in the moment when they do have a script. Improv teaches actors how to bring to life characters, relationships, and scenarios that will draw audiences in. The goals are to enhance the actor’s skillset, but to also build confidence in areas outside the performing arts. Developing the improv muscles can give the individual new-found strength as a performer, but more importantly as a person.

Truly great improvisers are listeners. They react in honesty and realism. They take whatever the situation or scene hands them and bring the audience in through their own eyes. Being childlike in a World of Make Believe where anything can be possible. A trained improvisor performs with confidence because they believe everything they see, feel, and speak in the moment. The laughter comes more from the audience’s connection to that performer’s viewpoint and experience in the created world on stage.

The Improv Community is also one of a kind. The strength of a pack. All team members fully invested in building a show for the audience and each other out of a mere suggestion. When two people can create a story based on the energy and idea in the moment, it takes the audience on a ride as if we were all kids again.
