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).
*** NOTE: THIS IS AN ENTIRELY ONLINE CLASS. FOR A LIMITED TIME THIS CLASS CAN REPLACE IMPROV 201.
You would be able to sign up for Improv 301 when the Training Center reopens.
