WARNING: Be prepared for gut wrenching belly laughs in a great learning environment filled with like minded people.


1. Beginner Level 1 works with Ensemble Building and Play: working with "Yes, and..." as well as learning the basic rules and setting a foundation on which to grow upon. Focus will be on building an ensemble within the group through improvisation games, which will improve focus, concentration, comfort in social settings and improving confidence.
2. Beginner level 2 works with Basic Scene Work: students will learn to use truthful emotion, how to listen to understand, rather than listening to respond, as well as to continue to hone skills from level 1. Students will also begin their self exploration through identity work which includes knowing themselves through physical, social, psychological and emotional aspects. Students will explore their 5 senses to activate them to their true potential, as we tend to do a lot of activities in a mechanical routine.
3. Beginner Level 3 works with Identity and Character Work. Students will develop a solid foundation of their Identity and explore it through 5 factors which are social, physical, psychological, moral and emotional work. This will closely tie into learning how to create a character from ground up utilizing character point of view, character emotions and building character backstories to include truthful emotions. Students will also explore physical actions and emotional reactions.
4. Beginner Level 4 works with Character Work: students will go into character building focusing on psychological, social, moral and emotional aspect, paying attention to character's physical movements and traits. As well, students will work on basics of creating character relationships. These relationships will be built through past and current experiences. Truthful feelings will be put into these relationships.
5. Beginner Level 5 Advanced Scene Work with Character Development Performance.
6. Beginner Level 6 Performance 20 minute performance and 3 minute monologue. Performance: Students will take everything they have learned in the 4 first levels to put together a play, under the teacher's direction.
