BATS School of Improv (#22-03-3493)

About this event

Class Time/Dates: 7-10pm PST on Wednesdays // March 2, 9, 16, 23, 30 & April 6

Schedule: 6 sessions; 1 session per week

Class length: 18 hours total

Class size: 12 students maximum

Tuition: $349

Prerequisite: Foundation 1

**This class requires Head of School or Coach approval. Please email bats@improv.org with a concise list of your improv experience to determine eligibility.

Foundation 2 moves further down the path to fully improvised scenes and stories by putting the mindsets from Foundation 1 into a scene structure while staying present physically in the moment and with your partner.

In F2 you will learn how to:

  • Put the building blocks of improvised worlds together and learn the skills that will enable you to create in a relaxed state of play.
  • Improvise from a grounded physical state that will be your touchstone when you don’t know what to say.
  • See and respond to what is already present, allowing you access to the creative part of your mind that intuitively knows what comes next.
  • Inhabit character and story throughout the body while creating fully realized environments out of thin air.
  • Identify the basic information of the scene. Who are these characters, how do they know each other, where are they and why are they there?
  • Students that complete F2 are eligible to participate in BATS Improv Gyms

At the end of Foundation 2, the coach will make a recommendation for each student about what the next step is best — repeating F2 to strengthen the improviser’s physical awareness or moving to F3: Character & Relationship.

*Attendance at the first session of your course is strongly encouraged - if you think you have to miss the first session of your class, please notify the office before registering.*
