Inspired by the work of Elaine May & Del Close, you’ll learn 4 basic principles of improvisation
- Make active & positive choices
- Support each other
- It’s an actor’s job to justify (work with what you have)
- Be seen & be heard
That SAME NIGHT, you show off your new skills in a live-streamed online show which will later be posted to Youtube.
