The UCB Training Center teaches quality comedic scenes which 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).
Course meets for 8 sessions, each 2 hours long.
Students should have access to a computer and stable, robust internet access, webcam & microphone.
online course uses Google Classroom and Google Meet programs to conduct
live sessions with your instructor and fellow students.

NOTE: CLASS MEETS AT PACIFIC STANDARD TIME (PST)
Do not sign up for this because it is the only class you see online at present, sign up for it if it is the only course that fits your schedule.
This two-week-long intensive is intended for students who can only be in the NYC area for a limited time. We will have more once-a-week courses starting before January.
Should I take an intensive?
Intensive courses meet in a condensed period of time compared to our standard eight-week courses. They are recommended mostly for students who do not live in the NYC area, have extensive previous improv experience, or unique schedules that make clearing one or two weeks easier than clearing the same time slot for eight weeks. If you can take a regular four or eight week course, we recommend you do that. It's cheaper, and you'll have more chances to see free improv shows and practice between classes.
Please note, due to the nature of the intensive class, make-ups are much harder to schedule.
PLEASE CHECK SCHEDULE CAREFULLY.
READ SHOW REQUIREMENT CAREFULLY! DO NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS CLASS IF YOU WILL BE UNABLE TO SEE TWO SHOWS BEFORE THE GRADUATION PERFORMANCE.
