If you’ve ever thought improv comedy looked fun, you’re right! In this beginner-friendly class, students will learn the basics of improvised performance. Using a mix of warm-up activities, drills, short-form games, and open scenes, students will develop confidence, learn to create theater on the spot, and have a hilarious time. The class culminates in a performance for friends and family. (Ages 18 and up)
The class will be held on Mondays beginning July 11 – August 15th.
