STAB! Improv 1

DESCRIPTION:

(STAB! Improv 1 is In Person Only)

STAB! Improv 1: Foundations and Fundamentals aims to provide improvisors with all of the necessary skills to be able to perform in any improv situation you might find yourself in, even at a beginner level. But a firm grasp on the Foundations and Fundamentals of improv aren't just important for the beginning improvisor, but for the most experienced performer as well. Being able to fall back on the fundamentals in any situation is an ability that will help guide and elevate your performance wherever you find yourself. 

STAB! Improv 1 will focus largely on active listening, support and building on other's ideas, finding inspiration, specifics and themes, playing to the top of your intelligence, building ideas together, making scenes more believable and the comedic point of view. Over the six weeks of the course you will build your improv tool box with the beginnings of all of the skills you will need to be the best scene partner anyone on stage could hope for.

And while this class will focus on core fundamentals is not intended just for beginners but any performer looking to sharpen their skills to be the most complete improvisor they can be.
