Burn Your Fear
This class, will light your improvisation on fire. It will help you find what you love about improv, slap you out of whatever fear is holding you back, and cut out the naysaying voices in your head that cloud your inspiration. We will look at how we sometimes censor or bail on our choices out of a need to make the “right choice” when improvising. Instead, let’s agree that there is no right or wrong choice and see what happens when we give ourselves the freedom to simply trust and commit to whatever comes up. We will marry a sense of playful abandonment with actionable techniques to start scenes boldly, heighten them via specific and surprising choices, and employ context (who, what, where, when, why, etc.), without getting in our heads about it. This class will move quickly, keep you on your feet, and challenge you with personal feedback. Let’s bring the whimsy to your make-em-ups! This class can culminate in a final improvised performance.
