This 4 week course will be the introduction to the Improvanopolis style of improv. What we focus on is making you better actors and storytellers, and the vehicle we use is improv. 

We focus on the truth of scenes, finding the game within a scene, or instantaneously hooking into a style or genre and creating a scene from that perspective.

We will cover many styles such as movement, voice, ensemble work, stage presence, stage placement, imagination, acting choices, improv warm ups and games.
