Skills Lab: Scene Partners and Strong Offers

This Lab will focus on agreement within a scene, listening and supporting your scene partner by staying focused on each other, defining the action of the scene, making specific, committed choices, allowing yourself to be affected by each other.


Skills Lab is a deep dive into a topic pulled directly from the PHIT curriculum.  Led by one of our instructors, participants start with a fun warm-up, engage in select exercises followed by open practice working on games or scenes with a specific focus around the topic of the Lab.

Part targeted workout, part practice group, Labs are open to anyone with some level 101 experience and above. It is strongly recommended for your own benefit that you have some familiarity with any Skills Lab topic as instructors provide targeted coaching and feedback around that topic to help you gain more mastery applying it in performance.


Skills Labs are *not intended* for people with ZERO improv experience.


Please check your schedule carefully before you register. All sales are final. There are no refunds, exchanges, or credits.


All students are required to show proof of vaccination before being allowed entry to the class space.
