INTRO TO IMPROV

Learn the basics of improv in this 4-week class, gain confidence—and have fun!

Many people think they have to be an actor or funny to do improv. While being funny is nice, it’s more about listening and reacting.

Improv is more than a skill for performers. It’s an excellent way to:

Gain self-confidence
Improve public speaking and writing skills
Learn to think on your feet
Open yourself to new ways of looking at things
Become a better listener
Bring more laughter into your life

If you’ve always been curious to try improv, we invite you to join us in this fun, safe environment.

All you need is an open mind and a willingness to play!

In this class we will explore:

Agreeing and committing
Attention and memory
Miming actions
Creating our environment
Playing with emotion and character
Fun games
