An absolute must.  It’s your most important class of the day.  ATNY’s Improvisation Classes will help you act on impulse, and take risks.  You’ll see it show up in your acting.  For Upper Teens, Sketch Comedy (Who’s Line is it Anyway?) and for younger teens, constructive improvisational games.  It’s a wonderful and creative way to start the day.

Confidence, Spontaneity in your Acting. For many young actors, your feelings of self-consciousness and fear of being embarrassed tend to activate every defense mechanism in the mind, body, and voice. Consequently, the walls come up and we turn into safe versions of ourselves, suppressing every natural and instinctual urge to be funny, silly, and real, at the risk of appearing flawed or simply (gasp!) human.  But, if you’re taking the craft seriously and/or currently auditioning, this must not come into play.  You must be able to take big chances and leave it all in the audition room.  Different choices are remembered.

Our Tweens/Teens Improv class is the safest environment to take the biggest risks! It is one of our most popular classes because it’s less about doing (performing, acting, forcing) and more about being in the moment. Strengthen your auditions by being comfortable in your own skin. Get out of your head and trust yourself, as you learn to make solid choices and go with your gut.  This will lead to wonderful moments in your acting, as some of the best lines and choices in movie history came from the willingness to improv in the moment.  You don’t know what’s coming next, and that’s the point.  Listen and react.

You’ll see the difference in your acting and auditions! Again, a must class for all actors!
