"BRING IT ON!"
Nick Curto, Director & Founder
Expect to have fun, to learn to be inventive and spontaneous, and to gain creative experience and confidence in working with others in going with the moment in performing a given scene. The director will set the scene as to it being a comedy or drama, or both, the general scene situation and scenario, the character descriptions, who is assigned to be which one of the characters, what their relationships are to each other, and will then answer any questions before the scene begins. Scenes may run from a few minutes to 10 minutes or in some cases a bit longer. Both serious actors as well as motivated individuals that would like to have this kind of unique training experiences are welcome to apply to be included in this group!
The Nick Curto Method of "Immersive and Fearless" Improv Training
“BRING IT ON!” is the attitude I want for my IMPROV acting students.
My cutting edge Improv Acting Classes are highly innovative, deeply challenging and reaches the next level of totally immersive training unlike anything you have ever experienced before. My method will push you far out of your “comfort zone” and into a world of new skills and rethinking so that the fear of taking a leap of faith in acting by eliminating ego and fear are eliminated that hold you back from achieving your goal of high skilled fearless acting.
The skills and processes of improvisation are also used outside the context of performing arts. This practice, known as applied improvisation, is also used in classrooms as an educational tool and in businesses as a way to develop deeper, expansive communication skills, creative problem solving and supportive team-work abilities. Being in a creative, nurturing and fun environment is known as an excellent and unique way to relax and take the pressure off everyday life by temporally escaping into a new and very exciting world of make believe along with other multi-talented and interesting people!
