Improv Fundamentals: Narrative
Once upon a time, there was an improv student who thought they could never come up with any interesting stories. But one day, they took the Improv Fundamentals: Narrative class and everything changed! But what comes next?
Improvisers are not only the actors on stage, but the writers and the directors, too. This course focuses on what makes a good story, and gives you the skills necessary to create one on your feet, out loud, in front of an audience. Phew! That sounds like a lot, so wed better get started!
Great for writers and storytellers of all stripes!
The Mopco Improv Fundamentals Wheel
Each of the four classes in the Fundamentals Wheel offers work on the core tenets of improv through a unique lens. The four classes are: Environment, Character, Narrative, and Scene. These reflect basic skill areas that good improv demands, all using the same core principles. You can jump into the wheel at any point and you don't need to take them in any particular order.
Each Improv Fundamentals and Musical Improv 6-Week course each has a unique performance element that showcases the skills you focused on during the class. You'll be able to show off to your friends and family everything you've learned. The performance is not mandatory but we bet you'll want to take part. Participation is dependant on consistent attendance.
