Improv for Teens & Adults

Is improv for comedians and actors only? No! Many people can benefit from an improv class, as it teaches skills which are great not just for developing improv scenes but also critical life skills: teamwork, trust, relationships, listening and being in the present moment. The best part of developing these skills is that you will be having fun while learning! This Level 1 class will introduce the Nine Rules of Improv. No acting experience is needed.
