Description

In this class we will focus on giving conservatory level students individual attention by identifying and working out bad habits that may have developed over the course of taking five to six levels of improv. Most improvisers are all too aware of many of these bad habits, but other's are less obvious, hiding just below the surface or underneath good habits clouding their cause and effect. Over these five weeks, we will unload your improv baggage and then attempt to rebuild you, as a stronger and more self confident improviser. Prerequiste:Level Five: Improv Revue and instructor approval. Deadline to apply: July 29th Notifications: August 2nd

Rick Andrews is a teacher and performer at The Magnet Theater, and has been studying, performing, and teaching improvisation since 1999. He began improvising with Improv Boston, and continued with a stint in Saint Louis, MO. He has been fortunate to learn from many improv greats, including Armando Diaz, Ed Herbstman, Joe Bill, Mark Sutton, Amy Poehler, Ian Roberts, Will Luera, Jill Bernard, and more.

Rick has taught workshops at improv festivals across the country, including the Boston Improv Festival, Baltimore Improv Festival, Black Box Atlanta, and many more. He has taught improvisation to people as old as 75 and as young as 6, and has done workshops for production companies and zoos alike.

He enjoys running, putting words on pages, thinking about the brain, and he loves improv more than anything.
