Maui Improv presents a one night workshop w/ Kimee Balmilero
June 28, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$35 – $50
Ever feel like you’ve run out of ideas? Have no more scenes to do? Or wonder, “WHEN IS THAT BLACK OUT GONNA HAPPEN?!” This workshop will focus on ways to get as much out of your suggestions and openings as possible. We will go through different types of openings as well as work on making strong and clear initiations that will have your scene partner(s) LOVING you! In this class we will also explore finding shiny objects and “game” of the scene. Students will have the opportunity to work through all the icky stuff and will walk out feeling even more ready to take on whatever the improv world has to throw at them..’cause you never know…;)
Improvhi, was founded in 2012 by local girl turned professional actor Kimee Balmilero. Originally started as a website to help support the growing improv and sketch comedy scene, improvhi specializes in classes, workshops, corporate training, special events and also produces shows showcasing the work of local up and coming actors, writers and artists. With a goal to spread the knowledge of improv and storytelling to not just actors, but everyone…improvhi is excited to be working with the BizGym Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit organization that seeks to empower entrepreneurs.
