This semester during our class time, we have been learning all about IMPROV! This has been super fun and super terrifying at the same time! The main thing we are learning through improv is to always accept what is handed to us (YES, and…). Some other things we are working on through improv is to work as a team, help our partner/partners shine on stage, and think on our feet. Improv will help us grow as actors in new ways. We often use improv during our main stage rehearsals to help us learn how to get off the page and practice thinking and reacting as our character. This helps us develop authentic chemistry and connection between the characters. But that doesn’t mean that it’s EASY! It’s NOT! Improving in improv (did you see what I did there) takes a lot of commitment and practice!
We are the drama class of the Shanan Co-op in Franklin, TN.
