Improv Workouts – Four-week sessions (Ages 15 to Adult)

Instructor: Matlock Zumsteg
Flex your improv muscles!

Improvisation is a form of theatre storytelling where the entire story is being created at the very moment it is performed. Being good at improv is not acting talent in the conventional sense, but more a capacity for being fully attentive and ‘in the moment’ with your fellow actors. Enthusiasm and willingness matter most! Come and experience what happens when you get a bunch of strangers to faithfully follow the rules of the game. And the rules are brilliant: they let magic emerge from a story people build together. These two - four week sessions are designed for all levels with summer schedules in mind!
