Building on the improv foundational skills learned in F1-F3, now the improvisers will learn scene structure and acting skills that will help them create story on the spot.

In Foundation 4 improvisers will learn:

  • Identifying the basic information of the scene. Who are these characters, how do they know each other, where are they and why are they there?
  • How to effectively start scenes, build them in the middle, and successfully “land the plane.”
  • How to embody the basic information of the scene. How can we as actors, shift our body, face, voice and imagination to establish and support the world we are creating.
  • Basic acting skills that lend themselves to believable storytelling.

At the end of F4, the coach will make a recommendation for each student about their next step — repeating F4, going to the Improv Gym to hone specific skills, or moving to F5: Narrative.

*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.*
