Foundation 4 – Scenework & Acting Skills

Online Sessions 
Prerequisite: Foundation 3
Schedule: 8 sessions (once a week for 8 weeks) 
Class length: 2 hours (16 hours total) 
Class size: 16 students maximum
Tuition: $299

Building on the improv foundational skills learned in F1-F3, now the improvisers will learn scene structure and acting skills that will help them create story on the spot.

In Foundation 4 improvisers will learn:

  • Identifying the basic information of the scene.  Who are these characters, how do they know each other, where are they and why are they there?
  • How to effectively start scenes, build them in the middle, and successfully “land the plane.”
  • How to embody the basic information of the scene.  How can we as actors, shift our body, face, voice and imagination to establish and support the world we are creating. 
  • Basic acting skills that lend themselves to believeable storytelling. 

At the end of F4, the coach will make a recommendation for each student about what the next step is best — repeating F4 or moving to F5: Longform Narrative.
