Upcoming Improv Classes at the SoCap

THE CORE PROGRAM

Core 1 is the Introduction to the SoCap style of improv. We emphasize character and relationship over narrative, ‘being in the moment’ over trying to be clever, making choices that have personal stakes, making connections over making jokes, fun and play, simplicity and clarity.

Core I: Find Your Joy with Matt McCready
Thursdays from 7-9pm
8 weeks starting July 27th




 

Core 2 picks up from Core 1. Using context (who, what, where), positivity and the awesome power of “Yes, and…” you’ll begin to create scenes with partners that are only limited by your imaginations.
Students who are interested are encouraged to begin taking the Friday Drop In and/or participating in That Friday Show.


Duo Scenes As creator, producer and host of The World Biggest Improv Tournament, Matt McCready has seen over 500 different live duo performances over the past two years.  He knows how to get into a scene quickly and how to maximize it once there and to have fun the entire way through.  Sign up with your scene partner or solo!

 

Introduction to Dramatic Improv – A new way to improvise. Dramatic Improv uses all the tenets of comedic improvisation – listening, saying ‘yes’, making choices – with a goal of exploring character and relationship without the pressure of being funny.  We are interested in exploring the honesty in moments.  We strive to be believable and connect with ourselves, our scene partners, and our audience.Dramatic improv is often funny to watch. In fact, it can be much funnier than comedic improv. What makes it ‘dramatic’ is the approach brought by the improvisers.If you’re you an improviser looking for a completely new way to approach improvisation or an actor who sees the value of improv as an acting tool, this class is for you. This class ends with a class showcase.
