Gifford, Terrie Set Yourself Free with Improv Life Skills- Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Performing Arts- Theater
Improv is a great way to discover those interesting characters just waiting to come alive when you have some encouragement from a director. Taking an improv class also allows you some time to practice an accent you've been wanting to try or maybe you just want to get comfortable talking to a group with no script in front of you. No matter what your goal, you will have fun learning to think on your feet and be in the moment. Anyone can do improv with some basic instruction. Participants act out scenes that are made up on the spot. Often the result is comedic.
$201- $350
