Fast & Fun with Patrick Rowland

On the stage, improv can move faster than light. Patrick Rowland will help you learn how to keep up.

During this 2.5 hour workshop, students will learn how to play with quicker pacing, just like the award-winning group 3Peat.
How tight can you be as an ensemble? We’ll work on techniques to improve trust and play harder that will improve the dynamics and add much-needed energy to any show.
After this workshop, you will leave being able to spot the game of the scene quicker, get out of your head, and just have fun with your team.
