BROOKLYN IMPROV TRAINING We teach Ensemble Improv: the skills of spontaneously creating, as a group, a single piece of work. Drawing from the wisdoms of Viola Spolin, Keith Johnstone, Del Close, and also from 15 years of improv teaching experience in NYC and beyond, LOM’s approach is experiential, on your feet, and full of joy. We will teach you how to let go of judgment, how to stay present, and many other practical strategies to create hilarious and delightful scene work with an ensemble of players. Our goal is not to teach you how to be the funniest person in the room, it’s to make the whole room funnier. All classes are 18 and up.
Our free Drop-In Classes are a fun and welcoming preview to what Brooklyn Improv Training (BIT) is all about.
The Drop-Ins mirror elements of our Fundamentals 1 course, focusing on letting go of judgement, having Fun with a capitol F, and experiencing BIT’s ensemble approach to teaching improvisation. The 90 minuets will fly by!
Stay for the afterhang to meet and mingle with fellow students and to chat with the instructors. No previous performance or improv experience necessary. Ages 18 and up.
