Sketch Block, KL Says Goodbye
Description: Transform yourself into someone else! This class combines improv, theater games, and writing to develop three-dimensional, funny, real characters using your face, voice, and body. By the end of the class you will have at least one fully formed character. Bring in your observations, your impressions, or just yourself, because in this class you will learn that “just you” is so much more!
