Foundation 3 is a deep dive into this vital ingredient of successful scenes: strong, colorful, committed characters.

In F3, improvisers learn:

  • How to create characters and develop relationships between characters that fuel the developing story.
  • How to create characters with subtle shifts in the body, face, and voice to tell their stories.
  • How to develop fully realized characters with strong points of view and wants that drive the story forward.

The goal of this class is to expand your character range and hone your skills at creating and sustaining believable characters -- all in an extremely playful atmosphere.

At the end of F3, the coach will make a recommendation for each student about what the next step is best — repeating F3 or moving to F4: Scenework & Acting Skills.
