2011 SFIF Workshops
Instructor: Charna Halpern
This is a very rare Bay Area opportunity to study with the legendary Charna Halpern.
Charna will be teaching a back to the basics improv class but that doesn’t mean it wont be perfect for those of you who are advanced. The basics are everything you need for beginning and advanced improvisation and she will even dabble in long form to take you to the next level. This is the real thing, folks, you might never have another chance at such a deal.
Charna Halpern has been teaching performers how to work together for more than 28 years. Her world-famous I.O. theaters in Chicago and Los Angeles are the meccas of training in the art of improvisation, and they act as a “recruiting” stop for television shows like “Saturday Night Live,” “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” and “MADtv,” supplying New York and Hollywood with writers and performers. The alumni whose talents she has honed include Tina Fey, Mike Myers, Chris Farley, Amy Poehler, and an entire generation of North America’s best and brightest comic minds.
