Schedule: 4 sessions; once a week for four weeks, skipping one weekClass Time/Dates: 10:00am-2:30pm on Sundays October 1, (skipping 10/8 for fleet week) 15, 22, and 29Class size: 14 students maximumClass length: 4 hours, with one 30 minute break (16 hours total)Prerequisite: Foundation 1
Foundation 2 focuses on refining your improv knowledge and skill set, reinforcing the concepts you learned in Foundation 1 through games, play, and exercises.
While the emphasis is still on fun, course content also explores more conceptual and technical information and helps you build the skills you need to perform in front of an audience.
Students in Foundation 2 are required to read one of the definitive texts on improv: IMPRO by Keith Johnstone. Johnstone invented Theatresports, one of the core improv formats we play at BATS. BATS sells the book for $25; it is also available from a variety of retail outlets. When enrolling, please indicate whether or not you would like to purchase the book from BATS. If so, you can pay for it at time of registration and pick up their book on your first day of class.
At the conclusion, everyone "passes" and can move on to Foundation 3, but you can also take Foundation 2 as many times as you would like.
*Attendance at the first session of your course is strongly encouraged - if you think you have to miss the first session of your Foundation 1 class, please notify the office before registering.*
