Improv II: Beyond the Basics – Learning to Fly
Sep 29 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Asheville Community Theatre

This class will be offered in person on the ACT Mainstage, following all the recommended

protocols for safety and sanitation. Class is limited to 8 students.

Improv II reinforces all of the skills learned in Improv I by applying those skills to advanced scene work, character creation structures, and at times intentionally conflict-filled scenarios. Beyond Basic will encourage students to no longer be bound by the rules of improv but to swing freely and see that the strategies are not restricting but sound instincts. A sense of play is as important as proper technique. Students will gain further experience and confidence in unscripted comedic performance through more-involved improvised stories, scenes, and group structures; again all done from a safe distance.

Prerequisite: Improv 1 or extensive improv experience (approved by instructor)

*In person classes are 50 minutes with an added 10 minutes for temperature checks*
