ABOUT THIS CLASS

This is where your Impro story begins. In this 8-week introductory workshop, you will learn the skills to prepare for the Impro CORE Program. Intro to Narrative Improv is a supportive and fun start for those with zero to little experience or for those orienting themselves to Impro’s style. Whether you have some experience or none at all, our teachers are skilled at tailoring the workshop to challenge each individual at his or her level. In Intro to Narrative Improv, you’ll learn the foundations of improv with skills like “Yes and!”, make your partner look good, and mistakes are gifts. You will learn Impro’s fundamentals of narrative improv by creating scenes with C.O.R.E. – character, relationship, objective, environment.

NOTE: This class is perfect for students brand new to improvisation or students with only a little improv experience.


CORE 1: PHYSICAL CORE
Starts October 23
Saturdays, 10:30am-1:30pm PDT
8 weeks
$325

ABOUT THIS CLASS

Physical CORE is the first workshop in the series of four CORE curriculum workshops and the foundation of Impro’s style of narrative improvisation. Impro values grounded characters, fully realized environments, and performing with a relaxed state of play. Physical CORE explores creating that relaxed state of play by letting go of the common misconception that improv is all about quick wits, verbal dexterity, and entering with an “idea.” While those skills can be helpful, at Impro we start by focusing on creating scenes from nonverbal offers like emotion, sensory input, stage picture, and movement. Impro asks its students to slow down, give importance to stagecraft, acting, and environment, as well as explore silences, and allow relationships and emotion to create story.

NOTE: This class is for experienced improvisers and graduates of Intro to Narrative Improv only.
