What you'll learn in this improv class:

This class underlines the core philosophy of what we teach at the BCC: that loving the hell out of whatever is happening onstage is the key to strong, successful scenes. It will help remind you what you love about improv, slap you out of whatever fear is holding you back, and cut out the naysaying voices in your head that cloud your inspiration. 

We will look at how we sometimes censor or bail on our choices out of a need to make the “right choice" when improvising, and that there is no “right or wrong in improv - only weak or strong,” and become stronger as a performer by embracing your mistakes and failing gloriously. This class pairs this sense of artistic freedom with an actionable approach to initiate scenes from a strong point of view, to be specific and surprising in your choices, to make what your partner said important to your character, and to confidently navigate the vocabulary and concepts that make-up long-form improv. This class will move quickly, keep you on your feet, and challenge you with personal feedback.

Prerequisite: Completion of BCC Level 1 Improv OR students who have taken at least one full-length course at a major comedy theater (UCB, PIT, Magnet, Second City, iO, Annoyance, etc.) or have similar prior training can begin at this level. Please write your prior experience in the form when registering.
