Course Overview

The class will start with a brief bio about Ross. He’ll then lay the ground rules of the class. By the end of the first week you’ll be on your feet doing some basic improv exercises. These exercises will continue into week two when you’ll begin to learn the structure of short form games, all the while ross is by your side coaching. After some time Ross will back off and let you dive into it head first. You’ll continue by learning the importance of listening & supporting your fellow actor on stage. This will include the importance of “yes anding’- your fellow actors. In the final weeks you will work on two-person scenes. Long form improv will also be a focal point.
