This class will focus on listening and being in true response while utilizing exercises carefully chosen to work well online. A fundamental tenet of improv is “Yes And” but often improvisers, unknowingly fall into traps of “just Yes”, or “Yes, but” or “changing the direction of the scene” instead of being in response. This class will give you easy foundational techniques to being in response.
