The PHILLY IMPROV THEATER has announced their new improv levels beginning in May, and we’re very excited about the instructors they have tapped… JASON STOCKDALE and DAVID WARICK. Each class is held once a week and runs for eight weeks.
LEVEL 1: INTRO TO LONGFORM
This is the place to start if you have never improvised before, or did some shortform improv in the past. In Intro to Longform you will learn about key improv skills like agreement, characterization, monologues, and object work. We’ll finish by learning the Armando performance structure.
