Keep up on your improv studies.
Our in-person programs are on hold until it’s safe for all of us to be back together. In the meantime, check out our virtual offerings below:
One Tuesday per month we offer classes designed for everyone who’d like to build or maintain their improv skills. Each class focuses on a different theme, designates time for scene work, and provides tools to make you a successful improviser.
