This 8-class first term course begins with the basic principles of improvisation. Players learn to survive "in the now” without a creative crutch. Lessons quickly evolve into skills that help players thrive on stage (and in life). You'll learn the art form's basic dos and don’ts—for example, how to choose a who, what and where without planning a story or plot. Characters tend to be one-dimensional and only exist in the present and in the moment.
Teacher: Doug Voegtle
Time: Saturdays, 9:00AM–Noon
This 8-class term begins Saturday, January 25, 2020. Students can miss no more than two classes. No refunds once classes begin.
Learning Environment Commitment
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 students to work in. 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!
