DIVE INTO IMPROV AT AVS! Join us for a BRAND NEW In-Person 4-Week Improv Class with Brielle DeMirjian! This class will take place at our NYC Studio (address below).
Dip your toe in the improv pool! Learn the fundamentals of creating comedy in the moment through saying yes to your scene partner and letting go of your inhibitions. This class will focus on building a strong improv foundation to give you the confidence approaching the stage without a script. We will work on being truthful with our emotions, loosening our physicality, and exploring the nuances that make us (and an audience) laugh.
Brielle DeMirjian (“Brielle” to friends) is a comedian/actor/writer based in NYC. She is precisely 5’4” but aspires to be 5'7". Her eyes and hairs are brown, her teeth are orthodontically corrected, and her hands are 8mm longer than the universal average. In the pre-Covid era, she was a house team improviser and teacher at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, where her performance was regularly considered "loud" and "while wearing shorts". She also performed monthly with her independent team Current Ex-Boyfriend, who champion emotional commitment, fluid character matching, and being absolute fucking freaks. Brielle has taught, coached, and performed improv all over the country, but her favorite child is New York (don't tell the others). Learn more at www.brielledemirjian.com
