Explore your creativity with Deep End Theater!
"If everything else is built on the foundation, then the foundation must be continually cared for to insure that the performer never loses strength and integrity." ~ Domeka Parker
Sound Improv is taught in layers rather than levels. The foundations of Sound Improv are paramount and need continued practice and focus. We encourage students to take the Foundations class as they're introduction to the rest of our curriculum, but we also encourage experienced students to revisit this class as regularly as possible. It is also important that students with a wealth of experience in other styles and approaches to improv take our foundations class in order to learn our vocabulary and approach. Students dive deeper as individuals rather than as groups. Foundations instructors are prepared to modify lessons to create individual growth with each student. No matter what your experience level is when you enter a foundations class, you will complete that class with quantifiable growth on and off stage.

This class focuses on the fundamentals of Sound Improv and lays the ground work for further study. This class focuses on developing and strengthening the most important skills of theatrical improvisation. Students who are new to improv will learn the basic skills of improvisation and the more specific practice of Sound Improv. And for experienced improvisers/actors this class will deepen and strengthen skills. Sound Improv is a unique approach to improvisation that emphasizes acting, honors theater, deepens and broadens our understanding of what improv is and what it is capable of. This is a truly life changing class on and off stage.
Once you have completed your first Foundations course you may re-take the class for $180.
