Each academy class is instructor-driven. Students will get to study the Harold and related performance pieces at a high level and will receive in-depth personal feedback about their own performance and progress as improvisers. Harold Foundation with Johnny Meeks  

In this class we'll focus on two foundational concepts of the Harold: 2 person scene work (the first beat) and initiating with bulletproof ideas from your opening. We'll aim to get rid of trying to find footing in the second beat instead of playing game. We'll do the work of setting up the Harold in this class, so that the rest is just pure play. Work less, play more. 


Class meets at UCB Sunset Training Center; Room #232
