Ok, maybe you're not Shakespeare but we can raise your game when it comes to improvising dialogue in a scene. It can be tough to know what to say, how to say it and when to say it, especially while juggling all of the other parts of a scene.
We'll exercise how to make our language serve the scene, how to make more specific choices with our words and make active choices in what we're saying instead of letting the words just fall out of our mouths. This class works on all those things and lets you deploy your vocabulary, speak what's on your mind and use your voice to its fullest.
Improve your improvised dialogue with this class for anyone with some improv training.
