Studio Scene Work at BATS Improv

Studio Scene Work is designed to help improvisers work on performance-oriented scene work. You’ll dig deeper into scenes and hone all of those skills you developed in your Foundation level classes!

The smaller class size gives students more of an opportunity to work in class and gives coaches a chance to provide more detailed evaluation and feedback.

Since there is a focus on your individual work, the Studio Class also offers a great tune-up class for students who are at the Studio level and have taken a break from studying!

This class can be taken multiple times. At the end of class, the coach and dean will help determine whether you are eligible for Performance classes.

Yoga and Improv Workshop

7:00 PM19:00

Yoga and Improv Workshop

As humans in today's world we are regularly bombarded with stimulii, expectations, and a perceived sense of control in our lives, jobs, and relationships that can feel daunting at best and debilitating at worst.

The practices of improv and yoga both offer frameworks, philosophies, and practices for finding the balance between effort and surrender; for examining our own actions, responses, and patterns; for making mistakes cheerfully; and for making mindful choices for how we want to move through the world - with intention, with heart, and with humor.

In this workshop, we'll move through yoga asana (physical poses) and improvisational theater exercises that embody those concepts. We'll also dive a bit deeper into the broader practices of yoga beyond the physical poses to find the alignment of yogic philosophy and improvisational principles.

We'll explore how we can integrate these games and frames to help us be more present, mindful, kind, attentive, and forgiving in our everyday lives.

Open to ALL LEVELS and abilities of improv and/or yoga - from total beginner to regular practitioner!

DATES:
Tuesday, July 2nd and Tuesday, July 9th
7-10pm, located in the Mission, San Francisco (precise location will be given upon registering)

**These will be stand-alone workshops: you can take just one and be just fine, or take both and be just fine!**

TUITION:
Sliding scale, suggested amount - $20 - $60 per workshop, NOTAFLAF (No One Turned Away For Lack of Funds)
