Introduction to improvisation

Grades 11-12, 1 semester, .5 credit

This course will introduce students to the fundamental concepts, techniques, and applications of improvisation - unscripted performance - in a variety of settings, build foundational performance skills and create a classroom ensemble for collaborative exploration.  Together, students will explore skill-building activities, develop characters, scrutinize relationships, tell stories, and analyze performance through their discovery of short-form, long-form, and applied improvisation.  Students should be prepared to perform with and in front of peers and to take risks on a  daily basis.  This course may require attendance at live theatre performances outside the school day, which will be tied to curricular assignments.

Due to the limited seating, we highly recommend getting your tickets early or watch the live stream
