BASIC IMPROV - INTRODUCTION TO IMPROV FUNDAMENTALS
Basic Level 101
Introduction to Improv Fundamentals is the first class in the beginner improv program at Positively Funny Improv. These classes are for anyone who wants to learn how to improvise, including people who want to do improv for fun, to better their professional skills, or to eventually pursue it professionally. Level A sets the foundation in scene work, ensemble, and the building blocks of improvisation. Students must complete Level 101 in order to advance to Level 201 Basic Scene Work classes..
In Improv Level 101, students start to learn the skills needed to create strong improvised scenes. Some of these skills include building ensemble, giving and taking focus, object work, and, one of the most crucial fundamentals of improv, the concept of “yes, and.”
Students get up and play a variety of exercises and games many used by PFI Improvisers on stage each week. These exercises and games train the analytical side of the brain to focus on simple goals, freeing the creative side and silencing the negative thoughts that can make us freeze in performance (or in life, for that matter). These games are high energy cooperation and a ton of fun to play.
No previous experience or prerequisites required.
