Each academy class is instructor-driven. Students will get to study the Harold and related performance pieces at a high level and will receive in-depth personal feedback about their own performance and progress as improvisers. Committed Harolds

Whether it is grounded slice of life scenes or abstract absurdity, we all know that "commitment" is a must for our improv scenes. And yet even the best of us find ourselves holding back. This class will be all about seeing how far committing to our ideas, base realty, emotions, physicality, intentions, points of view, etc, can carry not just our scenes but the Harold. We will spend time utilizing openings that demand commitment (The Invocation, Sound & Movement) to propel our scenes, our games, and our Harolds.

Does not meet April 11.
