Class Breakdown

MondayOn Day 1 we focus on one of the most core principles of improv: acceptance. Improv is nothing if not fun, spontaneous, and a chance to play make believe and turn it into hilarious art. We learn that there’s no need to try to be funny, that a little confidence goes a long way, and that creating something together is way more rewarding than forcing something alone.

TuesdayNext, we explore what we like about good improv. We’ll learn how to create interesting and engaging scenes full of characters with unusual points of view or emotions. We’ll see how easy it can be to create a character that is completely different from ourselves and put them into a completely fabricated world.

WednesdayWe’ll begin to piece together the core principles we’ve learned so far and start to develop our scene work. Students will practice listening skills and the ability to build a world that they’ve created. We’ll have some fun with short form games and learn about long-form improv, both staples of the KC Improv Company.

ThursdayOn Thursday we’ll start to piece together our final show, and continue experimenting with improv games and longer formats. We’ll play more with relationships and practice committing to the choices we make on stage. Students will explore deeper with what they’ve learned and gain confidence in their abilities.

FridayShowtime! For our final day, students will run through their show and recall the principles they’ve learned throughout the camp."
