The Improv Resource Center is excited to announce three more SceneBlast drop-in classes in November and December with a featuring a variety of great teachers and coaches chosen from across the improv community. Each SceneBlast is a one time class for improvisors of all levels.
How does it work?
SceneBlast is a blast of scenes. We’ll start with some warmups and then it’s a continuous stream of one scene after another. When you finish a scene, you’ll come off stage, go into the hall and get notes immediately from one of three coaches that night. While you are getting notes in the hall, the next scene has already begun, and when you are done you’ll get right back on stage and into the scene rotations. SceneBlast is the improv workout you’ve been looking for!
This is a style of workshop pioneered at the Torch Theater in Phoenix.
