About the Workshop:

Harold, JTS Brown, Close Quarters, Living Room, The Bat, Armando, The Google, Detour, and Shotgun. To name a few. There are several forms every great improv team should know and practice. This workshop will be walking you through the rules and techniques used in each of these forms. Learn the moves, openings and transitions that can take shows to the next level. Make your improv shows look more exciting & interesting than your typical collection of talking head scenes and sweep edits. This fast paced workshop offers plenty of stage time and helps develops the confidence it takes to make big moves and take risks on stage.
