In this series of classes, students will study the oft-forgotten art of making things up. With an eye towards producing a cohesive performance group, the class will use games, exercises, and a whole lot of general silliness to build a foundation of important improv skills. Topics will include narrative structure, status play, audience interaction, gibberish, mime, and more! No experience necessary.
About Our Instructors:
Austin Zumbro has studied, performed, and taught improvised theater all over the Bay Area, including BATS and SF Sketchfest. After four years as a member of the Stanford Improvisers, Austin graduated with a BA in Human Biology. Since then, he has worked with groups of all ages, from stodgy old business executives to three year-olds, but refuses to draw the obvious parallels between them.
Arie Levine has been teaching in Live at CCCT programs since 2005. After getting an early taste of improv as a young person in CCCT's Summer Drama Camp, Arie went on to perform for four years in Desperate Measures - Wesleyan University's short form improv troupe. Since returning to the Bay Area, Arie has trained with BATS, Leela, and a variety of other local improv institutions. She has performed in 24-hour improv shows on a few occasions, but promises not to subject your children to such a ridiculous endeavor.
