This eight-class first term course begins with basic principles of improvisation. Players learn to survive "in the now” without any "creative” crutches. The term quickly evolves into skills that help players thrive too. Players learn the basic do’s and don’ts of the art form of improvisation. For example, how to choose a who, what and where without choosing a story or plot. Characters tend to be one-dimensional — they only exist for right now, “in the moment.”
Teacher: Doug Voegtle

Learning Environment Comittment
Players Workshop is dedicated to creating a safe, non-judgmental learning environment for our students and teachers. If you're doing it right you'll find out some truths about yourself, and the world at large, that may surprise you. This can lead to feeling vulnerable which is why we maintain a safe space for our students to work within. We steadfastly believe in creating a space of unconditional and universal acceptance for everyone as they choose to define themselves. However, we will enforce a zero tolerance for exclusionary or threatening behavior (physical or verbal) of any kind.
Basically, be nice. We're all just astronauts on a rock that's floating through space...so be nice!
