Saturday Level 1

Release your inner-whatever you want! Find easy ways to access free flow of thought, trust and hone your story-telling intuition, and do it all in a cozy environment, creating a core ensemble. This class is great for people new to improv or improvisers and actors who want to break habits and get back to simple, basic fun. No experience necessary!

Level 2: The Character

Level up! Time to use those foundational skills to learn to create interesting, funny, and engaging characters through classical theatre and modern improv skills. Find both your comfort zone and stretch your range, find the balance between honest and absurd, initiate with intention and help your scene partners find their own character qualities.

This class is only open to students who have completed Level 1: The Offer OR to those who have successfully auditioned to skip Level 1.

The Harold forms the basic, international language of long form and is the entry point into figuring out what works about playing themes, challenging theatrical and comedy convention, really focusing group mind in an ensemble performance.

Level 6 is about finding your form. We take everything you’ve done so far and mix it with everything you like about, well, everything.Plus, every week you’ll perform the format you’ve learned that week in the Level 6 Weekly Showcase right after class!
