Mondays 6-9pm outdoors on the Zech stage at WICA for 6 weeks from August 10th to September 21st – excluding Labor Day September 7th.
Classes are intended to be safe, fun, and engaging! A person exposed to improvisation enjoys varying levels of benefits, including gaining confidence on stage and in life to react in the moment, improving one’s ability to be witty or thoughtful, a deeper understanding of listening, and much, much more.
Classes will involve improvised scenework with feedback/notes/challenges, improv exercises that enable students to break out of unproductive patterns, and discussion on the fine art of improvisation.
About the instructor, Billy Tierney:
More serious than his name suggests, sometimes silly, nearly always connecting, Billy has been studying, performing, teaching, and living improvisation for more than half his life. He thoroughly enjoys teaching people the art and craft of improvisation, and expressly delights in the observance of the growth of his students’ improv skills.
