The Holy Trinity


The Holy Trinity: Nothing but Ball, Dolphin Training and Hat Game
with Andy Crouch
Sundays, 4-6:30pm, April 2, 9, 23 and 30 (four weeks, skipping 4/16 for Easter)

Hideout Education Director Andy Crouch is bringing back his experimental Holy Trinity workshop – in which students will do nothing but Ball, Dolphin Training and Hat Game, each of them for way too long.

If you’ve ever taken a class with Andy you’ve heard him claim that, given a room full of people and the goal of training them to improvise as quickly as possible, he would do nothing but the three “games” listed above. Because each one is a perfect microcosm for the art form of improvisation. Because they give you everything you will ever need to have fun jumping up on stage and making things up.

Week 1: Ball
Week 2: Dolphin Training
Week 3: Hat Game
Week 4: Using the lessons of the first three weeks in wall-to-wall scenework

Will it work? Let’s find out! Will it get boring? Only in the very best way.

$99 for all 4 weeks, $25 a la carte / 10 hours of BALL, DOLPHIN TRAINING and HAT GAME / Limited Space / Class is held at Hideout Studios – 2505 E 6th St, Unit 3C
