Description

Simply put, you'll learn to improvise. In Level One, students will get onstage immediately and explore the fundamental principles of improvisation through exercises in agreement, commitment, spontaneity and listening. Sessions are designed so students will build a strong foundation as a confident performer. You will amaze yourself with your new found skills at the class graduation performance in front of your friends and family. This show is always fun and usually the highlight of most people's lives. Open to all.

Instructor: Kelly Buttermore

Kelly Buttermore has been performing improv and sketch since 2003, which, she's just realizing, now makes her look pretty old. She's been honored to study at both Magnet and UCB with Armando Diaz, Rachel Hamilton, Jean Villepique, Jackie Clarke, and Paul Scheer. She can currently be seen performing with the Megawatt team Horses, and with Justin Peters in the appropriately named duo, Kelly & Justin. She performed an extended run of her solo show “Miracle Grown-up” at the PIT in 2005, and with her sketch partner Greg Wilker, she's written and performed four sketch revues about presidents, U.S. history and chicken francaise, among other things. She is excited to be a writer for Reductress (www.reductress.com), launching in April 2013.
