Improv might be the most challenging of the performing arts for a director to skillfully mold his cast, and this class will show you how to get the most out of your improvisers whether in a class or a rehearsal. Techniques for creating lesson plans, orchestrating rehearsals, and giving notes will be explored. Participants will be given the opportunity to apply the techniques through hands on experience directing each other, and at the end of the session there will be a Q&A to address personal concerns of the attendees.

Limited to 10 students.
