YOU MUST HAVE COMPLETED IMPROV 101/201 INTENSIVE or be a 2013 graduate of IMPROV 201 to register.

MPROV 301 builds on the game of the scene from 201. Learn to instantly create solid characters (voice, attitude and physicality) and develop meaningful relationships in every scene you perform. Raise the stakes of the game by exploring the space between.

IMPROV 401 introduces students to Harold, the most widely performed improv format. From organic openings, second and third beats and group scenes, students learn the structure that makes Harold the standard for every longform. Be prepared to learn a strict foundation.

301/401 INTENSIVE runs from 930AM until 330PM MONDAY - FRIDAY. INTENSIVE runs until 230PM on FRIDAY.

THIS IS AN INTENSIVE CLASS — Intensive classes are a great way to get through our training program in a shorter period of time without sacrificing any in-class time.

Instructor: Vinny Valdivia

Vinny Valdivia

Vinny has been studying and performing short form and long form improvisation since 2008. He is currently on a million teams and loves playing with everyone. Besides performing, Vinny also coaches and teaches at DSI. Take one of his classes, say Hi! He likes people.

On his days off, Vinny loves to make music by playing drums and pretending he's good at guitar. From 1997 to 2003, Vinny played drums and toured with several bands including Bayside and The Prizefighter. To sum up his feelings on improv comedy: it's all about doing. There is no point in thinking about what you could have done and if you're busy thinking about what you're going to do then you're missing out on now. Instead of worrying about what's going to happen, make something happen.

Vinny also wants a saxophone.

Improv 101 is neither particle nor wave but has qualities of both.
