Improv Jedis
This is a course for the experienced improv Jedi (anyone who has taken improv 101 or equivalent before). We will work on going deeper into the art of improv. You will learn how to become more fluid on the spot. Improv is a form of live theatre in which the plot, characters, and dialogue of a game, scene, or story are made up in the moment. You will learn that you don't have to be funny in real life to be funny on stage. You will learn how to work with a supportive team to create scenes that captivate an audience. We will learn breathing techniques to feel emotions on stage, and learn physicality to create an environment that an audience can see without actually seeing it. At the end of the course you will be ready to perform a short show for your family and friends to attend. This is all through warm-up exercises and fun games. You will learn a newfound confidence and skills that you can carry not just on stage, but through your whole life!
Notes: Bring notebook if you like to take notes.
Prerequisites: Improv 101 or equivalent

The first draft is done (almost) and now it is time for the real work to begin. Let's rewrite! Our first draft was like a long, glorious, brainstorming session. Now it is time to chisel, shape, and refine what we wrote. What will happen to the elusive Chapter Six? Did we add enough sets of twins? Is the story actually set in fall or spring? Along the way, we'll look at techniques for writing tighter prose using "Self-Editing For Fiction Writers" and a variety of other writing resources. This class is a continuation of the ongoing What If class. New students are welcome, but should contact the instructor prior to registering to read what we have written so far and determine whether they are interested in joining the project.
