  • Imagination and
  • Collaboration

Students will learn the groundwork for the creative magic of improvising stories together.

World-class coaches guide students through the first exciting stages of improvisation in a safe, friendly atmosphere.

At the end of F1, the coach will make a recommendation for each student about what next step is best — repeating F1 to strengthen the necessary skills or moving to Foundation 2: Movement & Story
