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.
