Introduction to Improvisation with Mario Baldessari
At the AC Office, 1810 16th St NW, Washington DC
Wednesdays October 4, 11, 18 and 25 7:00pm – 10:00pm
Would you like to learn how improvisational skills and techniques can prove useful when you’re auditioning, rehearsing and acting? Did you know improvisation was originally developed as a tool to help actors be better actors – by instructors like Viola Spolin and Keith Johnstone? Come join us for our “Introduction to Improvisation for Actors” acting intensive and learn how to enjoy being in the moment, make stronger acting choices, improve your ensemble work and better physicalize characters. Yes, there’ll be a healthy dose of fun, comedy and laughter (but as a side effect, not a goal).
The total fee for all four classes is $60. All Actors’ Center members at any level, age 18 and up, are welcome to enroll.
***Once we have enough members to make it a 'go' we will contact you about making the payment***
Mario Baldessari is a local actor, playwright and acting instructor, and a founding member of Crash of Rhinos. He teaches regularly at the National Conservatory of Dramatic Arts and the Actors’ Center.
What AC members have said about Mario and his workshops:
Thank you Mario for being the BEST improv teacher. You're always well-prepared, organized, professional, and so much fun to learn from.
You are an astute tutor, and your sense of fun made every class a blast!!
I can't stop raving about Mario’s improv classes. He introduced me to some of the most useful techniques to improve my acting and auditions. During eight weeks of classes I had four auditions and four callbacks. On each occasion something he taught came into play.
THANKS FOR IMPROV which is the HIGHlight of my life!
