2. IMPROVISATION ZOOM WORKSHOP:

JUMP IN AND IMPROVISE

During these times of an ever shifting reality, the skill of improvisation is not only helpful, it is essential. To be supple as an artist is both liberating and empowering. Since most auditions and even rehearsals, and some filming, will be on-line we thought it would be fun and helpful to explore how to improvise on Zoom.
