Event Description

Wednesdays 6:30pm – 9:30pm

Behind every great improv team is a great coach, but learning how to take on this behind-the-scenes role can be mysterious and challenging. This six-week class will explore the theory and practice of effectively coaching an improv team to better performances, stronger group mind, and higher player satisfaction. We've assembled a team of some of the most experienced improv coaches in Pittsburgh to bring various perspectives and insights to the class. Each week is targeted to a specific aspect of improv coaching including giving targeted and actionable notes, running exciting warm-ups, effectively side-coaching, and creating empowering challenges for your players. Several weeks of class will include guest teams or performers for students to work with to get real-life experience coaching improv. 

Various instructors including Robin Hitchcock, Renee Rabenold, Tyler Ray Kendrick, Liz Labacz, and Greg Gillotti
