Voodoo Comedy Playhouse - Voodoo School of Improv - Denver Improv Classes"Improv taught me how much one’s bravery can inspire and give strength to others. I know there were times when many of us including myself were hesitant or unsure about participating in certain activities but there were always a few brave souls that were eager to jump in. Their bravery was infectious and encouraged everyone to happily join in, leading to a funny and bizarre yet rewarding experience!" - Anonymous Class Survey

“Keep Your Eyes OFF The Road!” Workshop with Rolland Lopez
May 28 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

$30
Register Now!

What do I say or do next? That’s a common question in improv, and often, we look at the road ahead to try and figure it out. But the road ahead isn’t written yet and we end up inventing or focusing on plot – so now we’re writing in our head and hoping our partners can read our minds and go with us down that path!!! That takes the joy out of the collaboration and creation that makes improv so fulfilling! (not to mention, that it’s just hard!) This workshop teaches students that to move forward in a scene it is easier to look back on what you and your partner have already created and pull from there. To be truly “in the moment” in a scene, you can’t look down the road and ask where it’s going…you can only create with your partner and when the scene is over look back and marvel at where you ended up. So, keep your eyes off the road!
