Improv Level 1: Foundations of Improv (In Person)

Are you ready to try improv? Yes, and… are you ready to do so while meeting new people, getting out of your comfort zone, and spending one night a week learning and laughing? Then this class is for you. The basics of improv and ensemble, no experience necessary! Each session is six weeks, and classes are 2.5 hours long.

This class is for ages 18 and up. Students do not need to prepare anything, but should come dressed to move. To complete the level and move on to more advanced classes, students must attend at least 4 of the 6 classes.

Improv Level 4: Short Form Topics (in Person)

An exploration of the various types of Short Form improv games. Each 6 week session will explore a specific category of game in-depth, giving insight into the specific mechanics as well as providing tips and tricks for fun and success. Students will then have the opportunity at the end of the session to perform in their very own show and put their skills on display!

This session will focus on Object Work and Environment.

Please note we are taking the following precautions for all students:

  • Every student must provide proof of vaccination either in advance via email or at the first class.

  • Students will be asked to stay 6 feet apart when at all possible.
