Come strengthen your acting chops without the pressure of scripts or blocking! This workshop will introduce basic improv tools and use improvised scene work to develop physicality, heightened emotion, and honest reactions onstage, with no expectation of being funny or clever. Actors will discover and explore exciting moments that keep performers on their toes and audience members interested in seeing more. Plan to wear comfortable clothes and shows. No improv experience required.

SARA ROSE is an actor, improviser, and teacher in Ann Arbor and the Metro Detroit area. She has a BA minor in Theatre and Performing Arts from the University of Michigan and has trained at Planet Ant Theatre, Go Comedy, and Second City Chicago. Sara is a resident artist at Go Comedy Improv Theater and a resident cast member and teacher at Pointless Improv Theatre. Sara believes that theatre (improvised or scripted) should challenge us to develop empathy and value diverse perspectives, and that the importance of these skills extends beyond the stage.
