Class length: 3 hours (18 hours total)
Class size: 14 students maximum

See the Foundation 2 class schedule »

In Foundation 2, students use the tools they developed in Foundation 1 as they learn more games and formats, build performance skills, and explore their own style of play.

Students are introduced to teamwork, stage skills, CROWE (character, relationship, objective, where, emotion), narrative, and scene work and solidify their understanding of status and other concepts from Foundation 1. Though the emphasis is very much on fun, the class curriculum includes some conceptual and technical information.

At the conclusion of Foundation 2, students are welcome to move on to Foundation 3, or repeat Foundation 2 as many times as they wish to keep playing and cementing those skills.
