Upcoming Workshops!

Character Lifecycle

January 4th, 4p - 7p 

Second City Hollywood

The Character LifeCycle class is a very intense study on character development. Students will work this challenging exercise by breathing life into one character and maintaining that character’s voice and body for the full three hours. Through improv and with each other, you will each create a fully-developed character from birth through death, allowing you to discover the different dimensions of this character’s life. It’s an emotional, concentrated character examination. LifeCycle is a demanding and powerful exercise that will change the way your characters play out in your future work and absolutely up your improv game. Be prepared to work!

Being in the Moment

February 17th, 3p - 5:30p

Finest City Improv

San Diego Improv Festival

"In the Moment" Improv - a portrayal of moments and connection. The greatest gift to an improv audience is watching improvisors existing in their character's life. Taking each step together, not knowing what is coming up next, or talking about what just happened.. rather, shifting our thoughts to the now. This workshop will allow you to explore different avenues to get you into the active, present moment. Portraying a living now. Exercises will not only drive scenes to take place in the moment in an active, present sense, but will also get the improvisors out of their head and erase the thoughts that take us, the improvisor, out of the moment and thinking about what move to make next. Exercises will focus on slow, emotionally driven scenes and exploring moments of truth. Up your game. "Free your mind and the rest will follow" - En Vogue.
