This December, venture south to study with The New Movement, an improv theater and training center with locations in Austin & New Orleans. TNM is calling hungry improvisers to take on the challenge of Training Camp, a five-day round-the-clock improv intensive that lets you learn & practice with a group of like-minded performers for 6 hours a day, then perform a killer show every night in front of a paying audience. The week culminates in a huge Winter Formal show/party on December 19th.
Training Camp is for an improvisor who has the heart and drive of an athlete. We seek the type of performer who never stops pushing, who watches shows with an eye for every single detail and move, who craves more practice, more stage time, and more challenge. If this sounds like you – whether you’re a newbie or an old pro – we invite you to Training Camp. By the time you return to your home troupe, you’ll be a finely-tuned improv athlete with the skills needed to take your game to the next level.
We believe that you learn best by doing. Training Camp takes inspiration from TNM’s rigorous curriculum – heavy on character, game, patterns, and devices – and creates a wholly original new improv bootcamp designed to give participants an exceptional (almost absurd) amount of scene work. By the end of the week, each participant will have spent 35 hours delving deep into improv and will have completed over 200 scenes.
Get Stage Time
We believe that you need more time in front of real audiences. Rather than waiting for one recital show at the end of the week, Training Camp requires participants to perform every night in front of thrilled audience members.
We believe that an improv intensive should be affordable. Training Camp – with its 35 hours of improv class, nightly performances, and access to the best TNM faculty from ATX & Nola – costs less than $400. That’s about 4 months’ worth of improv exercising, smooshed into one unforgettable week. Get here.
