Spotlight: This course fine-tunes skills learned in Beginning Improv. Students will learn short-form improvisational games and exercises that harness the skills of listening, making strong choices, acceptance and other improv fundamentals. All this helps create interesting narratives which allow for engrossing character interactions. Students will play short-form games and exercises that they've seen on "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" and in the DC Improv's Lounge.
