Advanced Study Improv with Jordan Klepper

Discovering the scene. Stop playing the scenes in your head, and start playing the scenes with your partner. The class will provide a heightened exploration of the basics of organic scene work with a focus on uncovering scenes with your partner as well as exploring the scene that's already in front of you. We'll focus on getting you out of your head, and into the scene so you can freely discover moments.

Students will have opportunities to perform at the UCB Theatre.
