Improv for Screen Acting

Taught by Phyllis Katz

If you don't know how to Improvise, you're missing out on a major component of working in front of the camera. You must learn to live, moment to moment, with lines or without them. More and more directors are incorporating improvisation in to their work on set- and the only way to learn how is to practice.

The legendary Phyllis Katz is a founding member of THE GROUNDLINGS. She has taught and performed around the world. She has specifically engineered this class to train you to live in the moment, in the given circumstances. We are lucky to have a master teacher like Phyllis teaching- no one has her level of experience.
