Instructor: Joe Blum Are you familiar with Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Upright Citizens Brigade or The Second City? This two hour workshop will introduce you to the concepts and skills of improvisational theater such as spontaneity, trust, agreement and listening. Basic improv skills are good not just for performing theater or improv, but also valuable in professional settings by helping you to think on your feet and communicate more effectively. No experience is necessary, only a willingness to get out of your comfort zone, get a little silly and have some fun. Instructor Bio: Joe Blum has been performing improv comedy for the past thirteen years in Los Angeles, Syracuse, NY and Minneapolis, MN. He currently performs with the Lynchburg improv troupe Adults With Crayons.
