Scene Work:

Chicago is famous for grounded, honest, relationship-based improvisation scene that produces deep laughs and deep sighs as the audience is moved to both. This style of work requires acting, listening, openness, patience, and responding through a shared process of giving and taking. This workshop will feature a deep dive into this two-person scene work that will bring improvisers discovery upon discovery. As those sharing the discoveries pile up, the scene improvised becomes deep, full and funny. It's the Chicago way.

Jeff Ringgold Workshop Friday night

The And of Yes And...
Too often, we put pressure on the first line of improv, when we should be free to say anything. The real magic comes in the response. The second line of dialogue can propel a scene into orbit, no matter what the first line is. Super Anding is an advanced skill that anyone can learn. Because its a skill that you can practice on your own, you will be able to walk away from the class with a skill that you'll keep improving. But it will change the way you view improv.

Come along And join us!
