FOLLOW THE FLOW

LOCATION: Comedy Spot Training Center, 915 T Street, Sacramento 95811

Veteran performer and instructor Betsaida LeBron leads two special workshops. Take one or both! The classes are designed to be taken either as stand-alone workshops or together to gain a deeper understanding of improv play and performance. 

To get the most out of each class dress comfortably, bring a water bottle, a notebook, and a “YES! And” attitude.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOPS

Complete Commitment – Thursday, August 15
Commitment is an improviser’s secret weapon. There are an infinite amount of choices and possibilities, but playing with complete commitment clears away the “noise” in a scene and allows you to laser focus on what matters to your character and to the scene.  Complete commitment ultimately means less work and more fun for you as an improviser! In this workshop we will focus on committing to our choices, our characters, and to our scenes. Think of it like a roller coaster ride: once you make the choice to get on, buckle up, you’re committed, the rest is easy!

Follow the Flow – Thursday, August 22
Flow is an active force that keeps things moving. Like a river, that doesn’t stop when it encounters a rock. So too good improvisers move and play with the twists and turns of a scene. Fear and doubt hold us back, fighting the flow leads to drowning onstage in stale or forced scenes. In this workshop, we’ll focus on recognizing what already exists on-stage, what to do with it, and how to let characters, scenes, and stories unfold and develop naturally. Be a force of nature and follow the flow!
