This course explores the principles of improvisation in-depth. You’ll develop your strengths as an improvisor to collaborate with other performers in longer-form improvisations and more challenging exercises. You’ll work on improvising in a variety of different formats, and develop a vocabulary for reflecting on your own performance to identify personal strengths and challenges.
