Have you ever been to an Improv Comedy show, or watched Who's Line is it, Anyway? on TV, and thought, "That looks like fun. I wonder if I can do that?" Here's your chance to find out.

A Basic Improv Workshop is being offered by the Syracuse-based improv comedy troupe, Saltine Warrior (in conjunction with the CNY School for the Performing Arts.) This is a basic course, covering the core concepts and fundamentals of theatrical improvisation. If you have no experience with improv…or you're an actor who wants to brush up those improv skills…this course is for you.

Classes will be conducted by Jeff Kinsler, the director and founding member of the improv comedy troupe, Saltine Warrior. Kinsler has over twenty years of experience in the performing arts. Guest instructors will also assist in the learning process. Topics covered will include: Agreement, Conflict Resolution, Space and Object Work and Character Development.

The course is six weeks (Thursday evenings) starting February 19th, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Tuition for the six-week course is $120 per student. Classes are being held at the Paul Robeson Performing Arts Company's Dee - Davis Theater, 805 E. Genesee St., Syracuse (near Phoebe's and Syracuse Stage.) Class size is limited, so pre-registration is required.
