In short-form improv, we’re always trying to raise the curtain on the middle of the scene. Join Richard to kick off scenes with a bang. In this workshop we’ll focus on making bold choices up top that give us the freedom to get to the good stuff quickly and delve into further discovery throughout.
Open to all students that have completed Level 1 Improv.
Level 2 builds on the foundation learned in the Intro course, and propels you into the heart of improv – the scene. Through a variety of games and formats, you’ll focus on relationships, developing characters, and building your performance skills as you develop the playful improviser within.

The character is the heart of any great sketch or improv scene. We can create unique points of view and physicality to bring them alive. In this course, you’ll build your repertoire of characters through a variety of exercises, monologues and scenework. We’ll focus on working both from the inside (point of view, flaw, emotion) and the outside (physicality and voice).
Pre-Requisite: Level 2 Scenework and Instructor Permission
