Improv
Mirror Room

An intro to Improv. The class will do games designed to break the Improv ice and teach basic concepts – such as saying “yes” to offers and building a story from nothing. The ultimate goal is to lose the noise we’ve developed since childhood that tells us to edit ourselves and others (not permanently… just while we improv…).

Facilitators: Bill Younger and Ben Yates
