Improv workshops

Practice your improv skills with students from Red West's Acting for the Camera classes and other interested actors. Red is starring in Glory Road, opening today, so his classes are on hiatus for a few weeks. You can keep your chops in tune at these two classes on Jan. 18 and Jan. 25 from 7-10 p.m. at the MeDiA Co-op (1000 S.Cooper). Cost is $10, part of which goes to support the Co-op.

This workshop is an introduction to improv. Basic skills are taught including focus, listening, reacting quickly, teamwork, scene work and trust. This class is excellent for actors or for those looking to be more comfortable onstage or in public speaking situations. The pace is determined by the skill level of the participants. Supportive, creative and fun!

This class provides students with an in-depth examination of storytelling. Students are challenged to explore more complicated elements of their individual performance skills. Everyone works together to fine tune all aspects of improvisation, with coaching

Coaches include:
Forrest Pruett, - SAG-eligible actor/screenwriter ("Forty Shades of Blue")
Michael Travis Stone - SAG actor ("Ray"),
Arnold Edwards II - Indie director
Jon W. Sparks. - writer/actor
