Class Experience

Tumbling into Slapstick Comedy is a course for actors aged 8-12 who have a passion for movement, and a desire to make audiences laugh! Natural jokers, aspiring clowns, and athletes with a goofy side will all find lots to love in this fun, funny, and high-energy workshop!

Actors in this class will…
  • Practice a set of solo skills, such as falling, rolling, and manipulating or colliding with inanimate objects.
  • Play theater and improv games to warm up their bodies and their funny-bones.
  • Learn basic tumbling and acrobatic movements often used in physical comedy.
  • Watch and discuss short clips from classic and contemporary slapstick comedians that demonstrate principles of slapstick comedy.
  • Work together on partner scenes and “bits” that incorporate slapstick skills.
  • Explore elements of stage combat, as they apply to physical comedy.
