Each academy class course is instructor-driven. Students will study Long Form improv at a high level and will receive in-depth personal feedback about their own performance and progress as improvisers. Please read below for the specific focus of this course. Game and The Scene with Alex Fernie
Juggling the game of the scene and what's actually happening in the
scene can be hard... having just one of those two things can lead to
scenes and shows that are hard to sustain and too much pressure on you
to be constantly making game moves. In this class, we'll focus on
identifying and playing what's funny about the scene as well as playing
the action of the scene honestly and reactively, in order to have
scenework that is sustainable, funny and fun to play.

Class meets at UCB Sunset Training Center; Room #225
