ABOUT

The Heart of It

Now that we know the basics, Fundamentals 2 session is mostly about getting you the scene experience you need to nail journeys consistently and confidently. 

Fundamentals 2 is special in that the lessons get tighter, and the scene practice is maximised.  You start with a lesson session, then after a quick break (as long as you're signed up for the Workout sessions as well), you get a special session just to do scenes, with both your fellow classmates and other Improv Connection players with a multitude of experience, in smaller groups – more scenes, with more experienced players.

In addition to deepening your learning with more emotional expansion and scene skills, you'll learn

• Our ABC method – a structure to assure your scene gets off on the right foot, and builds equitably and joyfully

• World building – object work that will inspire you as much as any word can do

• Silent scenes

• Rapid-fire dialogue techniques

Note: As this course is longer, and requires hiring an additional teacher for the evening, the course fees are set higher accordingly. That said, accessibility is a core value of Improv Connection, so let us know if you are in need of a course fee adjustment during regristration. Those who pay more make scholarships possible.
