A good improviser needs to be able to work with your team to tell a great story based on an audience suggestion. Pre-requisite: Spontaneity


Story is crucial for improv success; thus, this is a very important class within the Core Series. When performing improv, we do not have a script. To be a good improviser, you need to be able to work with your team to tell a great story based on an audience suggestion. Here, you will learn the five main elements needed to tell a simple story. You will also learn about character growth and the need for strong clear, logical offers. Finally, you will also learn how to apply stakes and create endings for your stories. Our goal is to tell memorable and entertaining stories that matter.

Prerequisites: Spontaneity
