Improvisational Acting will address, among other topics, connection to inspiration, ‘yes and-ing,’ status play, active listening, scene painting, and space work. Students who attend will learn to connect more deeply to their own inspiration while also engaging in active listening. Students will have a showcase at the end of the course for friends and family to see them perform in what might be their first ever improv theater performance!
