Impressions and Characters Workshop – James III

1798141_10152306419853832_607091369_n

Transform yourself into someone else! This class combines improv, theater games, and writing to develop three-dimensional, funny, real characters using your face, voice, and body. By the end of the class you will have at least one fully formed character or impressions piece or both, while generating several to chose from. The class can also serve as a gym to hone your established characters/impressions. Bring in your observations, your impressions, or just yourself, because in this class you will learn that “just you” is so much more!
