Advanced Study: Personalized Improv Tune-Up with Jordana Mishory
Get some customized notes (delivered with love!) designed to help your improv scenes soar
Struggling in improv scenes? Or looking for some personalized and targeted notes to help take your scenes to the next level? Take this 8-week elective to tune-up your improv!
Jordana has been teaching at WIT for more than a decade and will give you the tools you need to help make your scenes easier and more successful moving forward.
The specific focus of this elective is MAKING YOU BETTER through notes on your specific play tendencies. The class will be a mix of side-coached scenes and exercises designed to strengthen your improv muscles and help you get exactly what *you* need.
Please be prepared to share what you hope to work on for the first class. Each student will have the opportunity to attend one-on-one office hours with the teacher toward the end of the session. Participants should be prepared to work hard (while still having fun!) and have a desire for targeted feedback.
During the day, Jordana works as WIT’s operations director. At night, Jordana teaches advanced classes at WIT and performs with WIT Ensembles Uncle Gorgeous and The Hypothesis, and indie teams Jos. A. Banksy, Schtick, Schtick… BOOM!, and 2023 FIST champs Moonstruck 2.
Jordana was also a cast member in The Heist, an improvised drama about a bank robbery gone wrong, as well as WIT’s POTUS Among Us 2016. She previously played with long-time indie stalwarts Cake Bagel, duo Galbraith & Mishory, and WIT Ensemble Love Onion. Jordana directed Hellcat from 2017-2019.
She has performed at festivals across the country including the Del Close Marathon and the Chicago Improv Festival — as well as at The Kennedy Center’s Page to Stage New Play Festival. Jordana completed the curricula at WIT and the World’s Greatest Improv School, training extensively with Will Hines and Alex Berg. She also trained at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York. She has spent enough money on workshops over the years to presumably purchase her own private island. (She assumes, having no idea how much private islands cost).
Jordana is a strong advocate of side-coaching with an intense focus on believable emotions and strong deals. She is a stronger advocate of having the most fun you’ve ever had in your entire life while on stage. She spends most of her time in scenes trying not to giggle at her hilarious troupemates.
