In this course we will build on the fundamentals from Improv 1 to create full shows of interconnected scenes - building a world with your own rules. Part of the fun of improv is that it can grow as weird and crazy as you like, but it needs to start from a seed of reality.


Through scene work and exercises you will learn to focus your performance and build shows based on the core idea, or game of the scene. Listening for the unusual thing and creating your world around it. You will also heighten your writing skills and learn to think quicker on your feet.

This class is designed for performers who have taken Improv 1 or have taken similar classes elsewhere.

Each 8 week course will end in a class show for your friends, family, and future fans.
