This class will act as rehearsal and preparation for the improvathon competition at EXPO! This class will focus on team dynamic, learning specific EXPO games, and honing in on any areas of weakness. You can look forward to increased individual feedback due to small size and lots of opportunity for creativity and practice. We will schedule additional rehearsals outside of class time for extra competition preparation as needed (closer to the time of EXPO).
***The ONLY students eligible to register for this class are the 8 students who are on the Improv team going to EXPO and who were in last session's Advanced Improv Team class. Any others who sign up will be asked to switch to a different class. Thank you!***
