14-Student Limit, Ages 18+ 

Beginning October 26, 2022

 

Let's face it.  The better you are at improvisation, the more free you are to create on set, and the better film and stage actor you will be.

This is not a comedy class. This class is designed for the on-camera actor, encouraging free thinking and creativity on set and in the audition room. What happens when the director doesn't say cut?  Or asks you to "just go with it" or "use your own words" or says "let's see what happens after what's written."
