Classes are designed for both individual growth and the development of group mind through the principles of LATCo's style of play.  Each 8-week level will focus on a different aspect of ensemble improvisation.

Classes are broken into the following levels:

Level 1 - The Basics: The barebones beginner's basics.

  • This class is the foundation of our curriculum and introduces you to LATCo's style and approach to improvisation.
  • You will learn to play from the gut and follow the fun.

Level 2 - The Scene: Two person scenes. The building blocks of any long-form show.

  • Basic two person scene work.
  • Playing the dynamic, not the plot.  
  • Developing characters through emotional point of view.
  • Identifying strengths, and working on expanding range.

Level 3 - The Piece: The elements of play necessary to make a long-form show successful.

  • Develop the skills to maneuver a piece on a show by show basis.
  • Working collaboratively within a group of performers.
  • Recognizing and understanding exploration, connections, expansion within the piece.

Each class will run for 8 weeks and will be limited to 10 students.

Class levels must be taken in order; i.e., Level 1 must be taken before a student can take Level 2. 

Cost per 8-week session is $250, and is non-refundable after registration is complete.
