Improv Foundations 1 – People of Colour Edition
Learn the basics of improv in a fun, supportive, and safe environment! This People of Colour edition of our introductory class will give you the basic tools you need to play with others on stage, creating joyful, delightful comedy right on the spot in collaboration with your classmates. You’ll learn the basics of Spontaneity, Justification, Character, and Story — the four elements of improv that will help you improvise amazing scenes. Your four weeks of instruction will end with your very first performance, where experienced improvisers of colour will help you create an unforgettable and hilarious show. No previous improv or acting experience is required.
Who are you? You’re a person of colour who likes to try new things, maybe even things that scare you. You might be someone who wants to break out of their shell or explore a creative outlet that’s totally outside of your normal daily life. You love working with others and you’re down to meet some dope people. Even if you don’t think you’re funny, this is the perfect class to find your own funny, your specific comedic creations that you’ll create in the moment with others. You might even be someone who’s just starting out in improv, but for one reason or another, you just haven’t found the right place for you to practice/improve your skills. Regardless if you’re trying to get over stage fright, improve your public speaking, or just want to meet cool new people and have a blast, this class is for you.
