Improvisation is one of the two most important audition skills an actor can develop. It helps you to think quickly, concentrate, increase mental agility, eliminate "brain freeze" and learn to take risks. It is a skill that absolutely must be learned, and it's fun! No previous experience required ... This workshop focuses on fun and laughter!
Tuition: Ten Bucks.... Cash. Cheap Therapy!
For even cheaper therapy.... FIVE sessions per month for just $25.00.
