Tuesdays 6:30pm – 9:30pm

This four-week class is designed as a mini introduction to improv for new performers, a place for seasoned performers to return to fundamentals, or an extension of foundational improv education for veterans of our Improv 101 class! This class will let you learn and practice the core skills of improv comedy through fun short form games and exercises in a supportive, safe, and playful environment.  

A student showcase will be held on Thursday, June 30 for students to show their skills to family and friends!

Our full 8-week Improv 101 class returns in August 2022!
