Short-Form Improv Classes (8 Weeks Each)
LEVEL 1 – BEGINNING IMPROV:
Did you know that improv skills are also life skills? See how listening and agreement are the
cornerstones of communication and hilarious improv. You’ll perform improv games like you see at Big Canvas or on Whose Line is it Anyway?.
LEVEL 2 – GAME STYLES:
Build up your arsenal of improv games by learning games with different styles. Each week we’ll cover new games and new topics and styles of improv.
LEVEL 3 – CHARACTER AND SCENIC GAMES:
Watch your game play really take off by adding character and scenic elements. Plus, you get to play two new games each week.
LEVEL 4 – ADVANCED GAMEPLAY:
You’ll learn more games played at Big Canvas and other theaters. Plus we’ll spend time honing stage craft and adding professional polish to your stage skills. By the end of level four, students will experience more than 60 different improv games! After completing Level Four, you will officially graduate from the Big Canvas Short Form Program.
LEVEL 5 – POST-GRADUATE PERFORMANCE:
Learn additional elements of performing on a short-form team. These include putting together run orders, running rehearsals, giving and receiving notes, interacting with the crowd, and hosting games and shows.
