So, you've tried improv, you've had a taste of that sweet, delicious improvised comedy, and you're ready for more. Good news, this class is just the one for you. Join Empire Arts for Intermediate Improv, a six-week class on Mondays. In this class, they take a deeper dive into scene work from a short-form lens and learn the skills it takes to build the perfect scene. Students must have completed the Basic Improv class or have previous improv training to attend. Those taking the class must attend at least five out of six classes to be included in the final performance. All students must be fully vaccinated and provide proof of vaccination (either a vaccination card or digital record) on the first day of class at the door. All students must wear masks. Masks will be provided if you do not have one. Instructor Jessilee Windhaus is a proud Sacramento native and a firm believer in the power of applied improvisation.
