In improvised long-form stories, we often find ourselves in the "Lead" role. Just like that, we are the "Star" of the story!

How can we do this, convincingly, bravely, honestly, and with passion? How can we fill the roles that famous movie stars across the decades have played?

In this intensive, we'll explore what playing the lead means to YOU, and discover ways that you can rise to this great challenge and opportunity!

Some of the things that we'll work on:

  • how to "want" and "search", not "know"
  • playing with confidence, vitality, and bravery
  • finding our "sexy" selves
  • staying connected: to ourselves, the story, and our partners
  • being truly comfortable and relaxed onstage; believing that we're worth watching
  • physicality - how to portray violence and intimacy in improvised stories

BATS Improv Class Refund Policy:

Your class tuition includes a 20% non-refundable deposit.

If you have registered for a class and decide you want to drop that class AT LEAST 14 DAYS BEFORE THE FIRST CLASS SESSION, you may choose to receive a refund for the amount of the class minus your non-refundable deposit OR you may choose to reapply your payment IN FULL to another BATS class.

Classes dropped 4-13 days before the start of the class are not eligible for the re-application of full payment to another class. You may either reapply your payment (minus the applicable deposit) or receive a partial refund. This option is not available for those enrolled in summer intensives or youth/teen camps.

Regular classes/workshops dropped within 72 hours of the first class session, or summer intensives and youth/teen camps dropped within two weeks of the first session, are not eligible for either re-application or any refund.
