Students will build on what they learned in Level 1 and learn a character creation method called “The How.” Who you are in a scene is defined by HOW you do what you do. Level 2 focuses on the HOW. You will also fine-tune your skills with the improv games you learned in Level 1. The class ends with a recital for family and friends. MUST BE 18 YEARS OR OLDER TO TAKE THIS CLASS.

COVID -19 precautions: all students must wear masks and remain socially distanced at all times.
