About this Event

**CLASS CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19**

Now that you've Discovered Improv in Level One, this follow-on course will have you uncovering the unique, absurd and downright hilarious world of GAME OF THE SCENE.

Building on top of your foundational skills, in level 201 you'll learn how to create scenes that feel less random and more in your control using time-tested techniques used by some of the top improvisers seen in international improv comedy theaters.

In Level 201 we'll teach you

  • Comedic patterns
  • Rhythms of comedy
  • How to avoid distractions and start focusing the funny
  • Critical character dynamics
  • Ways to support your teammates ideas
  • How to smartly recycle comedy in a show
  • And more

We'll do all this while training our creative muscles to put it together for maximum hilarity. If you like to laugh, make others laugh, and want to do it even better - this course is a must-have!

Class size is limited, so be in quick!
