Recognize the absurd and funny moment in a scene. Develop the skills to focus on it.


One of the cornerstones of improv is discovering the game of the scene. Learn to become a more active listener so you, along with your scene partner, can recognize the fun of a scene together. Sustain longer scenes by establishing patterns by keeping the focus on heightening the game. This tool will help you explore the world you’ve created and add more depth to your performance.

Class will be held in-person at Source Theater, unless otherwise noted. Participants will be required to upload proof of vaccination against COVID-19 upon registration.  In accordance with DC’s indoor mask mandate, students and teachers will also be masked during class time.
