CIC Theater offers a 4 level long-form improvisation class structure

CIC Theater offers advanced improvisation classes to improvisers who have completed either the iO or Annoyance training programs.  The classes are designed towards individual growth, rather than the teaching of a doctrine.  Each eight week level will focus on a different aspect of ensemble improvisation

Classes will be broken into the following levels:

1- The Scene: Two person scenes. The building blocks of any long-form show

  • Playing the dynamic, not the plot.  
  • Developing characters through emotional point of view.
  • Identifying strengths, and working on expanding range.

2- The Show: The elements of play necessary to make a long-form show successful

  • Exploration, heightening, connections, expansion within the piece.

3- The Ensemble: Defining of roles that exist within an improv ensemble

  • Working collaboratively within a group of performers
  • Recognizing and addressing the needs of a collective performance
  • Considering performer types and tendencies with a preference toward developing flexibility

4- Performance Level: Individual feedback 

  • Honing strengths in both scene and show work.
  • Challenging growth in other areas.                

Includes 8 weeks of performances (including show notes from instructor)                

Each class will run for 8 weeks and will be limited to 16 students.

Cost is $250 per class.

All Levels will be offered in succession on the same day, at the same time.
