You will learn the importance of status and complimentary and parallel characters. Pre-requisite: Spontaneity


Character is an exciting class within the Core Series. Creating three-dimensional characters is an essential component of successful improv. In this class, you will learn how to develop a character – the process of becoming someone other than yourself on stage. Elements such as your character’s place within the scene, how they relate to the other characters, and how they react within the context of the situation are some of the skills this class will impart. Our goal is to make stories pop with interesting and powerful character choices.

Prerequisites: Spontaneity
