Bayfront Theater, San Francisco
Schedule: One session
Class date: January 28th
Class length: 3 hours
Prerequisite: None – all adults 18 and over are welcome!
This class is an introduction to the basics of improv specifically for folks self-identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual, asexual, transgender, gender diverse, intersex, questioning, and queer (phew!) – and their allies.
This 3-hour workshop is an introduction to BATS-style improv, focused on creating a comfortable and safe environment. You’ll learn the basics behind improvised theater—spontaneity, playfulness, creativity, listening and storytelling, to name a few—and give you a chance to explore what BATS-style improv is all about. Improv skills build trust, cooperation, and flexibility, and tap into the imaginative and creative qualities that we all possess!
This fun, energizing, and playful 3-hour workshop is a great introduction before taking Foundation 1, or also great as a stand-alone, one time session of play!
