CSz Milwaukee Intensive Series:
Improv in Silence
New to the CSz Milwaukee Intensive Series!
There are moments in performance where the best thing to say is… nothing! In this class you’ll learn more about embracing the awkwardness of silence in improv. Learn to build tension through developing your facial and body expressions! Explore your non-verbal communication skills by understanding what you are showing and giving to your scene partner. Build and show your confidence in your stage presence, and exhibit a sense of full control to your fellow performers and to the audience.
Jake Shaw is the Artistic Director and Head Coach of CSz Milwaukee, where he started improvising in the High School Leagues in 2003. Along with years of experience performing short-form and ComedySportz, Jake also trained in long-form at iO Theater and the Annoyance Theater in Chicago. With experience in acting and a focused theater training background from the Milwaukee High School of the Arts and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Jake has a passion for teaching how to utilize the acting and improv skill sets to enhance a performer’s time onstage (or on the field).
