Commedia dell’arte with Virginia Scott starts January 11th 2015. This is the first time that this acclaimed master teacher is offering a class in Los Angeles, and it’s going to be amazing: a full 7-Sunday session devoted to the amazing masks of the Italian Comedy. Expect to be thrilled and challenged as you plunge into the bawdy, irreverent and hilarious world of the Commedia. Perfect for beginners or clowns who want to expand their range and discover new possibilities.
Our new Level 1 Class at Second City opens Saturday February 7 and runs through March 21 (Saturdays only). We’re so happy to continue our collaboration with the extraordinary and influential Improv house, who are hosting us for the second session running. Clown School instructor Zach Steel is fast becoming a favorite for his blend of individually-tailored challenges and his deep grasp of what it means to be a clown.
Zach continues teaching with our new Level 2 Class: Tears of a Clown, this time hosted by The Clown School, which runs Sundays March 28 through May 17. Take your clown to the next level in this glorious exploration of clown archetypes and your own creative freedom.
And keep your eyes peeled for more! In summer 2015 we expect to launch more classes with the phenomenal Phil Burgers, while Clown School Artistic Director David Bridel will be on hand to offer one of his legendary Intensives. In the Fall, David will offer a new Level 3 class culminating in a public performance.
Come and join us!
