About the Workshop
The fundamentals of good improv acting, in order: SAY YES to your partner's offers at all times. SAY WHO you are, no matter how crazy things have gotten, And the most controversial but most crucial: be willing to say "no" to keep the intelligence of the scene HIGH. We'll do a lot of scenes that are an intense practice of agreeing with each other, but making big internal decisions to know who we all are! And a little "no" to keep it real. Walk out a better more confident improv actor from a teacher who had no natural talent and had to learn all this stuff from scratch.
