If you are great with a script but the thought of speaking on the fly terrifies you, then this is the necessary course to face those fears. Agents and managers in Los Angeles frequently look to see if actors have improvisation on their resumes. And the reason is that film, tv, and commercials often require their actors to improvise on set. This class will lead students on how to gain the necessary skills to be free and full of life while improvising. This course is required for those who aim to join the Advanced Level.
If you want to do this course and more, opt for one of our Membership Plans to lock in the best value for your training. The more you train, the better you will act.
COVID PROCEDURES FOR IN-PERSON CLASS PARTICIPANTS
Student safety is our priority, and we want to ensure a safe place for students to come and learn. As of December 28th, 2021, we will be enforcing a vaccination requirement for all ADULT students. We will be requiring proof of vaccination to be shown on the first day of class. Please note that medical and religious exemptions will be considered with a written note. See below for details on the vaccination protocol.
For Spring Semester, our masking policy is still in effect. One change: teachers will have the option to determine for their own classrooms whether or not they will allow masks to come off during scenework, (2 actors working at the same time.) Students should expect to stay masked for the entirety of class unless their teacher adjusts the policy for their classroom.
These policies will apply until further notice. We will keep you updated on any future policy changes.
How it will work:
On the first day of class, students will be asked to show their vaccination card to the instructor, along with a proof of identification matching the name on the vaccination card. Completion of the vaccination series (1 dose for Johnson & Johnson, or 2 doses for Moderna/Pfizer) is highly encouraged before beginning any of our classes. To encourage vaccination, we will accept just the first dose, as long as the student plans to complete the remaining vaccination dose(s). A booster dose is not required, but also encouraged.
For those with medical and religious exemptions to the vaccination, you will need to provide a weekly negative Covid PCR test taken 1-2 days before your class. Please bring your negative Covid results with you to class each week to show the instructor as you arrive.
PLEASE NOTE: This updated vaccination requirement is only applicable to our ADULT classes. For our students in our Teen or Kids Acting classes, we will not require proof of vaccination, but do still encourage vaccination when applicable. For Kids and Teens classes, teachers will have the option to determine for their own classrooms whether or not they will allow masks to come off during scenework. Students should expect to stay masked for the entirety of class unless their teacher adjusts the policy for their classroom. Classes that are designated to take place online also do not have the vaccine requirement.
In the case that you become ill or are tested positive for COVID, we would also like to remind you that every class has a Zoom option where you can attend virtually for the day. Please do not hesitate to use that option if you feel that you are sick, if you believe you have been exposed to COVID, or are currently in isolation.
Thank you very much for your patience and understanding.
COVID 19 NOTE:
Given the unpredictable nature of the pandemic, the studio may need to make decisions about the safety of its students by moving an in-person class online. Students registering for classes acknowledge this possibility and agree to transfer the class if/when the studio makes that determination. Students may not receive a refund or a transfer of credits in such an event.
All In-person classes will function in a hybrid manner, which means that at any point a student can opt to join the classroom remotely. This will change and limit the way the student will participate in the classroom, but students will still get to learn and work in the class. Every in-person class will have a Zoom link assigned to it, so should a student need to miss meeting in-person, they can log in remotely and join the class. In the physical classroom, there will be a large screen where remote classmates will be viewable to the group.
As always, there are no returns or transfers. Tuition reserves your spot in class; all classes fill up, so this is the only way to confirm your spot. Tuition is non-refundable nor transferrable, as class is a commitment to yourself, your scene partner, your instructor and the collective.
PAYMENT INSTALLATION POLICY
If an installment is purchased, a Recurring Authorization Payment Form will be part of the in person paperwork we will need completed. If you sign up over the phone, the form will be sent to you. Complete the form and turn it in before class starts. Without the form, you will not be officially registered in the class and will not be allowed to start your training until you have done so. A $1 charge will be made in order to ensure method of payment is valid. The value will be returned back to the card after the payment goes through. The last payment will be deducted 7/15.
By opting for Installment Plans, you are making a commitment to pay them as scheduled regardless of absences or attrition; it is a legally binding contract. If such a commitment cannot be made, we recommend paying for the course in full or not enrolling.
All health related absences will be excused, with or without a doctors note. Our nonrefundable tuition policy will stand; however, if you are unable to complete the course due to illness, we are willing to transfer tuition to another class in the following semester. If you are concerned about attending class in person, we will offer online attendance (via video call.) *This attendance policy is temporary, going into effect as of Winter 2020 semester. This policy is subject to change.
MAKE-UP CLASS POLICY
Excused absences may be made up by attending another similar class within 3 months of the absence. No other make-up arrangements or discounts will be offered.
