Fun Harolds, Not Hard Harolds with Sarah Claspell

You've learned the Harold, now what? Let's get good at it! Let's have fun with it! In this class, we'll break down the Harold structure and work on bringing the fun parts of improv into it before we put it all back together.  We're gonna do wild group games, experiment with new openings, work on game, and overall have fun with this challenging form to get out of your head and make the Harold work for you.
