PREREQUISITE: Improv 1 and Improv 2 (must be pre-approved by instructor)

The Performance Lab works with students to take the skills they have learned in the earlier levels and improve upon them by applying them to structures intended for performance. Students will be instructed on how to make “show-worthy” choices, choosing sustainable characters over quick-laugh caricatures, establishing relationships rather than just spouting punchlines, but at the same time developing instincts as to when a scene needs a spring or a solid blackout line. A final showcase will be held on Friday, April 14th.

**If the class if full, we encourage you to sign up for the waitlist. If there is enough interest, we may add an additional class for the session.**

Registration opens 1/25/2022. Tuition will be $180– Scholarships are available.

NOTE: If applying for a scholarship, please fill out the Scholarship Application INSTEAD of filling out registration. If your application is approved, we will be in touch with you to register.
