Our improvisation program isn't only for actors...The skills you learn during an improv class can be translated to all aspects of your life.
This workshop is a must for everyone who is ready to push themselves out of their shell and build their self-confidence. From CEOs to bus drivers, sales people to dancers, our students will benefit from the simple joy of improv as an art, business and life skill.
This six-week improv intensive will improve your nerves, focus, anxiety, and confidence. Participants will learn how to be in the moment, think on their feet, get in on the creative process of improv and improve their comedic timing. You will work in a supportive and comfortable environment with an instructor who will ensure you get the most out of the class.
Participants study the fundamentals of improvisation through exercises that help to develop strong ensemble and character work. Participants will develop stage presence as well as patience, good interpersonal communication skills, public speaking skills and a respect for other performers and their creativity.
