IMPROV FOR ACTORS Workshop with Cindy Jackson
Everyone can act. Everyone can improvise. Anyone who wishes to can play in the theater and learn to become 'stage-worthy.' - Viola Spolin
Improv training isn't just useful for actors, its also helps hone and develop a skill set that can make you a better listener in your everyday life. In fact, improv is entirely about listening first, then responding honestly and realistically to what you've heard. Improv helps actors be both better auditioners and better performers. It helps them live in the moment, while remaining truthful to their work.
In Improv for Actors, students will learn how to take proposed situations and turn them into full-fledged dramatic or comedic scenes by incorporating scene and object work. Students will focus on theory and foundation that will be put into practice via exercises.
