This is a skill-building and confidence-boosting class in acting and comedy basics, which helps to shed inhibitions, instill confidence in one's own creative ideas and contributions, and helps enhance teamwork and problem-solving skills. If you’ve got a talent and a love for making people laugh, this eight-week workshop is for you! Humor speaks to all personalities and is an effective way of channeling creativity to make poignant and relevant commentary. Explore a variety of comedic styles including improv, sketch, physical comedy, parody and stand-up. Sharpen your timing, heighten your creative instincts, develop your own comedic characters and ideas, while you also build trust in your scene partners, learn to listen and “pass the ball,” commit to the given circumstances in a scene, and bring freshness and spontaneity to your acting performance.
