C3? UCB Improv 201 London Intensive: February 15th - 19th 2016
The Upright Citizen's Brigade Training Center is coming back to the UK! We loved running a 101 Intensive back in the February this year. We had really positive feedback from all the students with the strongest note being "we want a 201. Well here it is.
This the chance to get a full level two with the UCB Training Center, from the comfort of London.
We're running a week long intensive from February 15th - 19th 2016. Classes are £399.
The UCB Training Center teaches quality comedic scenes focus on one central comedic idea: referred to as "The Game" of the scene.
Students will be taught:
1) identifying "games,"
2) heightening finding new ways to make your scenes get funnier from start to finish,
3) realizing how patterns support the "game,"
4) second beats (returning to scenes later in a piece).
