Bring the Funny! The Art of Improv
It's time to: Bring The Funny! Since laughter truly is the best medicine, R.J. brings you a class filled with mirth and creativity. Improvisation, or improv, is the basis for every form of acting. RJ has studied & performed improv throughout his career and brings his knowledge and experience to the class. You'll learn how to think on your feet, how to “actively” listen within a scene, and how to “give” to your scene partner. And you'll do all of this within the safe and supportive confines of a 5-week course. Class will meet in the Grange Theatre.
Students should wear comfortable, easy-to-move-in clothing and comfortable footwear (no heels or heavy boots).
R.J. Crowley is a graduate of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City. He has written and performed sketch comedy in NYC and was a member of the improv comedy troupe The Groundlings. Most recently, R.J.’s improv skills have been on full display on Fox Sports where last summer he improvised his way through a Red Sox /Yankees commercial, and via Disney Plus, where he is featured in an episode of The Big Fib. R.J. also incorporates improv into the immersive theatre events that he produces locally.
IMPORTANT: The health and safety of our visitors and staff is our #1 priority. If, due to circumstances beyond our control, it becomes necessary for Artistree to close its doors this fall, any in-progress classes will move to an online format. Our instructors and patrons will keep in mind that a transition to virtual learning is a possibility. Artistree will issue no refunds or credits for classes that cannot continue to run in person and must move to a virtual platform.
