Improv Essentials with Andy Sarouhan

The skills that make improvisation delightful are listening, collaboration, generosity, honesty, and presence. This 6-week course will focus on the essential sources of spontaneity and creativity (and what blocks them!), as well as provide students a chance to reignite their instincts towards play.  Perfect for students completely new to improvisation, as well as those with previous training who wish to sharpen their fundamentals.
