Improv Class: Safe, Strong Scenes
Trust is essential for improvisers to develop. Strong, honest scene work comes from suspending judgment and playing person-forward characters in equitable and positive ways. Learn to navigate the boundaries of improvisation, and know when a scene needs to be rescued, or retired.
