Comedic Improv: A huge part of commercial auditioning is the ability to improvise. Walking into the audition room to improvise should be exciting, not terrifying! This course will hone those spontaneous/playful skills with a focus on mock improvised commercial auditions. If you’re looking to sharpen your listening and reaction skills, while having a lot of fun, this course is for you.

Dramatic Improv: There is a side to improv that, while not as popular as comedic improv, is a powerful tool for the serious actor. More and more docudramas and re-enactment shows lean towards scenario or “scripted” improv for their auditions. This class will explore the dramatic improv world which is packed with truthful emotions and human stories that are raw and deep. Classes will create mock auditions that will give the actors a chance to play within this world of vulnerability that will help them stand out in a casting room.
