Completion of Improv 101 within previous two years
Sun March 30, 2014, 3:15pm EDT
The UCB Training Center teaches quality comedic scenes focus on one central comedic idea: referred to as "The Game" of the scene.
Students will be taught: 1) identifying "games," 2) heightening - finding new ways to make your scenes get funnier from start to finish, 3) realizing how patterns support the "game," 4) second beats (returning to scenes later in a piece).
This course meets for 8 sessions that are each 3 hours long.
Students will take part in a class performance, generally held at the UCB Theatre.
Students are required to see at least 2 improvised shows at the UCB Theater before the end of the course.
Admission to 301 after the completion of this course is not guaranteed. Students will be judged on their application of concepts that they have learned in Improv 101 & 201. The Training Center will send placement notification to students within 10 days of the Improv 201 graduation performance. Students may not enroll in Improv 301 before receiving this notification.
Class Size: 16 Students
Class does not meet April 20
