Queer Up the Prov.
Too often, people in the queer community play the way they are expected to play -- the way their straight teachers taught them. But what makes improvisation beautiful is the way that our unique voices shape the scenes we create with our scene partner and their unique voice. Queering up your improv isn't just about seeing same gender couples in scenes (though that sounds fun), it is about developing your special voice and allowing it to come out on stage. This class will seek to foster your voice and allow it to come out on stage.
This class is for LGBTQIA+ identifying improvisers only.
