Improv Level 05 (Tue)
with Mike Ooi
Level 05: Advanced Forms
Prequisite: must have taken a Level 4 improv class at ColdTowne
Students will build upon their knowledge of the Harold by exploring other improv show formats and structures. These structures include The Deconstruction, Close Quarters, Spokane, and other popular forms. Through practice of these structures, students will hone their abilities while also gaining an understanding of the various parts and workings of an improv form. Understanding how to produce the kind of show you want to put up by creating your own form will be essential for the final level. This class includes a student performance!
