Advanced Scene Study

Advanced Scene Study

Learn how you can nurture the skills needed to create grounded scenes that can sustain themselves for longer than just a few minutes.  In this workshop, we will focus on breaking out of any habits you may have formed that can hinder grounded work, while we explore the small steps we can make to do truly sustainable, dynamic scenes.

Recommended for improvisers with a minimum of two years training/experience.

This class will be held at Candler Park Yoga (1630 DeKalb Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30307).

Sundays 12-3pm, September 10-October 29

What People Are Saying:

  • No one, NO ONE has been more instrumental in my growth as a performer and as a person. Rountree helped me learn how to human again. Not only have I grown as an improviser and storyteller, but Amanda's classes (especially A.S.S.) have shaped me into being a better listener, and a more empathetic person.

    —Amy Hood

  • Amanda Rountree’s skill as an instructor is top notch. Her insight is amazing, and it is matched by her succinctness in giving constructive and critical feedback. She offers the learner clear directions on their path of development in the art of improvised theater and a deeper understanding of the nuances of performance.

    —Brad Fortier, Co-Founder and Curriculum Developer at Happy Improv Fun Time, Portland, OR

  • Being in Amanda’s Advanced Scene Study Class is like going to the improv gym to get your reps in with a personal trainer: she’s super focused, teaches way beyond basic "yes and” skills, and coaches pragmatically for fine tuning of technique. She also tailors the classes to the ensemble’s needs-- I’ve taken the class twice now and will be taking another round next time it fits my schedule.


  • It’s no exaggeration to say that Amanda’s teaching was instrumental in bringing my improv to the next level.


  • Amanda is a fearless teacher who seems to know exactly when you need support and exactly when you need a push. Becoming a better improviser can be uncomfortable and Amanda has helped me make friends with that feeling instead of being crushed by it.
