Taught by Columbia native and Chicago and New York actor and improviser Martha Hearn, Improvisation for the Actor will take young performers through the basics of creating short and long form improvisational scenes.  Often described as “using one’s imagination without any preparation,” the art of “improv” is as old as performance itself.  Often building scenes around audience suggestions, the actors learn to create environment, character, plot, conflict and resolution all while thinking on their feet.
