Yes, I signed up for class at the GROUNDLINGS SCHOOL! The Groundlings is the famous comedy improv group that gave us such fabulous comics that went on to SNL.
First, the audition: the teacher explained some basic improv rules and then we each did two improvs. The next day, I found out I passed the audition and signed up for BASIC IMPROV. Twelve classes to learn some of the basic tenets of improv…space work, identifying who you are, where you are and what you’re doing.
It sounds easy…it’s not. But what fun. This upcoming week is my last week of Basic and I’ll find out if I need to repeat Basic (which many many students do…sometimes three times!) or if I’ll move on to INTERMEDIATE. SO, stay tuned!
