More Improv info

Thinking about signing up for the improv class? Here's a bit more info from our instructor...

I began developing this class studying Improv at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade in New York City. In my dual careers as a professional actor and a Technical Recruiter, I find myself constantly using the skills I have learned through the study and practice of improvisation. In teaching this class, I hope to pass along these benefits to you, and more importantly, I hope to show you how fun it can be!

Have you ever been to Theatresports at the Pike Place Market Theatre or watched ‘Who’s Line Is It Anyway?’ and wondered how they do it? Maybe you’ve never even seen live improv, but you’re looking for a chance to step out of your comfort zone and do something new. Whatever your background, you don’t have to be Robin Williams or Chris Farley to improvise. In fact, anybody (yes, even you) can do it! This class is for the curious, the daring, or those who just want to have fun playing games that will sharpen your ear, mind & body and build on your ability to work & play as a team.

Whether you are a seasoned performer or have never been in front of a group of people in your life, improv is not only fun, but the skills you gain will improve your ability to listen to and communicate with others and express your ideas on a personal & professional level. This class will be a series of three, 2-hour classes in which we will be playing games, creating scenes, and having more fun than should be legal.
