In this 3-day intensive course you’ll develop an appreciation for long-form improvisation in its many forms and some of the basic skills that go into doing it! Dave Dennison and John Remak will guide you through exercises and games that look at and work on:

  • Taking your time and paying attention
  • Narrative, especially establishing a strong foundation
  • Acting
  • Ensemble
  • Improvising in genres
  • Transitions between scenes
  • Locations/activities

This class is for students who have prior improv experience in scene work but have little or no long-form experience. A perfect way to get some serious long-form chops and familiarity.
