Zen of Improv 2: Jumping into the Void and Catching Your Friends
This class picks right up where Zen of Improv 1 left off. We continue to practice the ease-full approach to improvisation in an incredibly positive and accepting atmosphere that will build your confidence as you strengthen your skills and expand your improv toolbox. Our special focus in Zen 2 is on establishing a community of trust and confident risk-taking as we get more comfortable jumping gleefully into the unknown and selflessly supporting our teammates. Let's really dive into an exploration of "Who needs you most?" and how we can be of most service to the scene and each other! Ready to get back on the joyride?

Follow Your Show (Advanced Improv Level Tier 2)

Follow Your Show with Pam Victor Eight Thursday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30pm starting September 8, 2016 (exact dates below) at the Pilates Studio in Hadley (104 Russell Street, Hadley MA 01035) "...we move from one small step to the next, the first line spoken to the next, from one moment to the next... the whole show is just following, following, following." -Improvisation at the Speed of Life In this Advanced Improv class, we'll practice paying attention like ninja-detectives in order to discover the show happening already and to follow it one small step at a time. Let go of working so hard to make stuff up; instead, practice how we can follow the show where it's going already, including noticing how the characters and relationships develop, the pace of the show, the editing style, and even what structure the show wants to be. Let's explore an easeful (though not always easy!) method of improvising. Follow the Show is a challenging class designed for players who feel like they have enough brain space to add on the skills of viewing the show through an overhead eye, reading global scene and show themes, and tapping into their intuitions in a grander scale in improvisation. Ready to take it to the next level? Let's Follow the Show!
