Description:

Take your personal experiences and turn them into an entertaining, engaging, and funny performance!  Whether you want to perform in front of an audience or simply get better at telling a good story at a party, this workshop is for you! Through verbal and written exercises we’ll discover what stories we should tell, we’ll work on point of view, on character building, and on finding the truth in the tale.

This 1-day workshop will introduce you the art of comedic storytelling and help you get more comfortable being yourself as you share stories about yourself.  Each student will be coached individually and receive guidance and feedback from the instructor and other students on a story (or two). It is my goal to make sure our students to leave class with a stronger stage presence, increased confidence, improved delivery and more ideas for stories to tell.

Students should bring a notebook and a pen/pencil, PLUS any story ideas you may already be working on ( or not; it’s okay if you don’t have any ideas yet.)

Training Camp: TNM’s Winter Improv Intensive

Monday Dec. 15 – Friday Dec. 19th
COST: $325 (before Dec. 1), $350 (after Dec. 1)

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.

Get Repsabout_1
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.

Get Here
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.
