CLASS: Level 1 – Improv BasicsThe Adventure Project's Improv Basics students

Class is in session! New dates coming soon.
Limelight Theatre
11 Old Mission Ave.
St. Augustine, FL 32084
$99

Throughout this 8-week course, students will explore the basic concepts of improvisation in a warm, safe and supportive environment. The class is designed to build self-confidence and explore creativity using the fundamentals of improvisation. Designed for both actors and non-actors, it will expose students to:

  • Being – and reacting — in the moment.
  • Accepting and building on gifts from other classmates.
  • Embracing – and using — failure.
  • Co-creating with others (listening, communicating, giving & taking focus).
  • Thriving in an unscripted environment.

Students leaving this course will have a working understanding of the basic fundamentals of improvisational theater as well as an increased appreciation, and comfort, with being on stage without a script. So what are you waiting for? Register now to secure your spot!

Level 2 Improv (Prerequisite: Level 1): Class is in session! New dates coming soon!

Level 2 Improv expands on fundamentals learned in Level 1 Improv in the same warm, safe and supportive environment. Continue building self-confidence and exploring creativity while engaging in a higher level of the “yes, and…” concept. Play short form improv games while also learning the foundations for solid scene work in a co-creative space that highlights reacting in the moment, giving and taking focus, active listening and failing with grace in an unscripted environment – on stage and off. Class culminates in a student showcase.

NEW! Level 3 Improv (Prerequisite: Levels 1 & 2): Class is in session! New dates coming soon!

Level 3 Improv takes the “yes, and…” concept and directs it to building strong characters, connecting through authentic relationships and developing emotions that heighten scenes. Play short form improv games, continue developing scene work and begin to stick your toes into long form improv waters.  Class culminates in a student showcase.

COMING SOON! Level 4 Improv (Prerequisite: Levels 1, 2 & 3)

PLAYSHOP: Yes Mingler 2Mingler

We had so much fun at our first Yes Mingler in Vilano that we decided to do it again! This time we’re partnering with City Bistro Tea House & Coffee Company for fantastic beer, wine, coffee and yummy snacks.

What’s a Yes Mingler?

A group of people with a “yes, and …” mindset meet for a mini adventure to expand their professional, social or even romantic networks.

Is this a networking event? Yes.

Is this a party? Yes.

Is this an improv event? Yes.

How is this different than a regular networking event, a regular party or a regular improv gathering?

A Yes Mingler has these agreements:

1. Minglers turn over their phones to The Adventure Project’s Amy Angelilli upon arrival. At a Yes Mingler, minglers interact in real life, in real time, with real people. (You may take photos with a camera that is not attached to a phone, or, you may ask Amy to take photos for you.)

2. Minglers attempt to “touch” every other mingler meaning all minglers cross pollinate by the end of the evening. (Yes, there will be facilitated activities to make mingling a breeze.)

3. Minglers come to the event with improv’s signature “yes, and …” mindset ready to be fully present, engage, connect and make each other look brilliant no matter how silly the games may be!

Not sure if this event is for you? Ask yourself … “Am I looking for new friends, a new hobby, a new job, a new way of interacting, a new experience, a new adventure, new adventure buddies, new fun, new games, a new way of being in the world?” If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you want to be at Yes Mingler 2.

What the heck is an Improv Hangout anyway? It’s this:

improv games + drinks + snacks + YOU

This is an opportunity to EXPERIMENT (!) with improv games. Try out a new improv game, play a favorite improv game and/or experience a twist on an improv game you might already know! Never played any improv games? GREAT! The stakes are so low that they don’t even exist — at all. Really, it’s 0 stakes play.

NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED – JUST SHOW UP
