What you'll learn in this improv class:

This intensive will focus on Improv as it relates strictly to commercials. You'll learn to mime eating, talking and reacting in a restaurant scene; activities thrown at you "in the moment"; taking a script and putting it into your own words; improvising dialogue before the written script starts and after it ends; creating an instant character fully realized at a moment's notice and much more!

As every savvy commercial actor knows, many auditions are strictly improvised and in order to book, you need to have this skill set down pat! Barry is an expert teacher of these kinds of auditions where there is either no copy at all or the script is partly or entirely improvised.

"Hi Barry. Your Intensive yesterday at the Actors Connection was phenomenal. It is by far the best class I have taken thus far. You gave great feedback without tearing us down. Also, watching the playbacks were great for laughs. However, I am sure I speak for the entire class when I say it is was very helpful in looking at what we are good at and what we need to improve upon. It was just a very comfortable environment. Thanks again!"
- Engelia McCullough

Refund & Cancellation Policy

Refund Policies: 

We regret that we are unable to give refunds under any circumstances!

Cancellation Policies:

If you cancel at least 48 hours before the scheduled time of your seminar, you will not be charged. The policy for a class or special event is 7 days prior to the start date in order to receive credit for monies paid. It can be used for any and all programs at Actors Connection. There may be special cancellation policies for holidays that are printed in the schedule. If you cancel in time, credit is automatically returned to your Actors Connection account. If you are canceling late, no credit is given unless we find a replacement for you. We have, on occasion, been able to replace actors who late cancel with others from wait lists or who might be standing by. If you are replaced, as a courtesy, we will not charge you for the late cancellation. Please consider any late cancellation a charge on your account, and any resulting replacement a courtesy. You may want to re-adjust your schedule to attend, since although we do our best to have full seminars we can never promise a replacement. If you are a "no show" for a seminar, you will not receive credit under any circumstances.
