What would you do if you were in the middle of a session and all of a sudden you're asked to completely change your character? How do you perform a new take on a script that you've already made choices on when the director just says "I dunno... give us something different."?
Would you panic? Or would you deliver?
Actors who study improv learn to get out of their head and be in the moment. They learn to accept what is given to them (by the director, by the script, or by another actor) and make spontaneous choices without worrying about whether it's right.
Time and again, professional voice actors give the same piece of advice: take improv classes! They share how much it has helped them during a crucial moment (or sometimes that their biggest regret is not having studied it because of the leg-up it gives to their competition).
Voice One offers a beginning improv class that takes you through the the basic rules of improv (believe it or not, there are rules!) through games and scenes. Laura Derry creates a fun and safe space for you to succeed and fail and you'll laugh and learn a lot!
