Improv 401 is the final step in our core improv curriculum. This
course offers students the chance to strengthen their individual skills
while giving them more practice with the long form improvisation
performance known as the Harold.
Students will utilize the skills learned from our previous levels such as, playing truthfully, to the top of your
intelligence, while practicing agreement and support. Students will be
sensitive to the games of their scenes, and connect the scenes into one
cohesive piece (the "Harold").
Teachers will offer more individual feedback at this level.
Course meets for 8 sessions, each 2 hours long.
online course uses Google Classroom and Google Meet programs to conduct
live sessions with your instructor and fellow students.
