This workshop is designed to teach the foundational techniques needed to perform short-form improv. Students learn tools to give and take focus, expand and explore in ensemble games, create characters and physical memory. Students will learn performance based improv games and learn how to start a scene, be a strong team player, save their fellow Performers. This is a safe creative environment without the pressure of a show or script memorization!

Hannah Opdenaker is excited to be a part of the Bowman Dance Company and Studio team! She is a recent graduate of Mount St. Mary’s University, where she earned her BA in Theatre, with concentrations on education and performance. Some of her show credits at “The Mount” include Mrs. Gotlieb (Dead Man’s Cellphone), Iphigenia (Iphigenia and Other Daughters), Lisette (The Metromaniacs), and Susannah (Mr. Burns: A Post Electric Play). She also was featured in staged readings of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, No Exit, Much Ado About Nothing, and Lysistrata. While her favorite place to be is Center Stage, Hannah also spent much of her college theatre career exploring all areas of the art form, including costuming, stage management, and direction. In her final semester, she directed a cast of 25 in a modern adaptation of Lysistrata. Hannah has taught classes in character development and analysis, stage movement, improv, and was a Teaching Assistant for Acting I, Acting II, and a Triple Threat class. She is so excited to join the Bowman Team, and work with students on finding their inner characters on stage!
