About this Event

Dates: This class runs Wednesdays from 8 - 10pm, starting Jan. 20th and running for 8 weeks

PLEASE NOTE: This class will be conducted online through Zoom! Enrolled students will be emailed a Zoom link earlier in the evening of the event. For the best experience you should have a steady internet connection and a quiet space. The experience is best on a laptop, desktop, or large iPad - ideally you won't have the device in your hand so that you can stand up and move around and still be on camera.

Instructor: Patrick Gantz

Prerequisites: Improv 101. Email info@rvacomedy.com with questions.

Patterns help us collaborate. Spontaneous group acceptance/collaboration impresses an audience more than individual cleverness. Pattern work rewards an audience for paying attention and enforces the idea that the show was made especially for them.

Through a variety of online methodologies, this class will provide opportunities to practice pattern recognition and collaborative creation.

Patrick started improvising on stage in the seventh grade. He founded The University of Virginia's first improv group, The Whethermen. He trained and performed in Chicago at iO, Second City, and Annoyance theaters as well as with indie groups in bars. He joined a fledgling Washington Improv Theater (WIT) performing with Jackie, coaching, and building out its first curriculum. Now he can be found at The Coalition, via @Improyster on Twitter, and through improvdoesbest.com.

COST: So that everyone might experience the joy of learning comedy, The Coalition is experimenting with the idea of a "Pay What You Can" program. For an 8 week session, a donation of $150 is suggested to secure a place in this class but $0 is a totally acceptable payment. In order to move forward, however, each individual class does need to be able to bring in enough money to pay its instructor and its share of the cost of Zoom.
