In this class, Kevin Allison (founder of The Story Studio, RISK! and member of The State) will teach you the skills to wow a crowd with your story. You’ll learn how to select compelling story topics, use the “five beat” structure to build suspense, and tap into the larger thematic meaning of your ideas. This class encourages participation: everyone will be given the opportunity to apply storytelling techniques to one of their own stories. A few students will be given the opportunity to share aspects of their story live on stage, and receive criticism so that we all can learn together. Each participant will leave with a 3-minute story that builds upon the principles taught during the class.

Kevin Allison is the creator of the hit storytelling podcast RISK!, and has been a regular on VH1's hit series Best Week Ever. He is also a writing and performing member of The State, the legendary sketch comedy group best known for The State on
