Skills Program

Registration is now open for our next term, which starts March 14. 

The Skills Program is an exciting new addition to the GoU curriculum. It offers a variety of classes in theater, film, writing, and improvisation. Each semester will have different choices, so check back to see if there’s something that interests you. Please email classes@gocomedy.net to register, as these classes require some previous longform experience.

 

IMPROVISED CHARACTER MONOLOGUES | A 6-Week Course | $175

Sundays 12-3PM | Teacher: James Quesada | This class will meet on Easter Sunday
Uh-oh. You're on stage but no one else is there, it's just you. How did this happen? You jumped out to edit the scene, ready for the next one, and the rest of your troupe took a moment to tie their shoes. Bad timing on your part. Or maybe you voluntarily signed up for some kind of Improvised Monologue Slam. Either way the audience is looking at you with smiles like you might say something. This class will provide you with the skills and the confidence to deliver improvised solo performances!

 

Bad Habits Boot Camp | Sundays 3-6PM | Teacher: TBD |$225

This intensive stand-alone class will take a deeper look at where you're at as an improviser and fine tune your performance to help you perform at your best. The smaller class size will allow for more one-on-one feedback and a more in-your-face approach to learning. This class is not for fragile egos. Students must have at least one year of improv experience to take this class.

Boot Camp: Physicality
This Boot Camp will focus on leading scenes with physical choices. The class will explore movement, realistic and abstract pantomime, physical game play, and intuitive character development.

Character Boot Camp
This intensive stand-alone class will focus solely on creating and sustaining improvised characters. The smaller class size will allow for more one-on-one feedback and a more in-your-face approach to learning.
