CLASSES

IMPROV FUNDAMENTALS PART I

This class is perfect for anyone curious about improv! Over the course of 4, low pressure weeks, we will explore the basic building blocks of creating improvised moments, learn how to draw inspiration from our own experience, collaborate as a team, and have a great time supporting one another!

IMPROV FUNDAMENTALS PART II

This class takes the building blocks of improv fundamentals and uses them to create characters and scenes. With a focus on 'YES, AND,' we will explore the basics of improv scene work, giving and receiving offers, and creating improvised worlds together.

IMPROV FUNDAMENTALS PART III

This class takes the basics of improv fundamentals, scene work, and character-building and helps you create a never-before-seen improv show. You'll work closely with your classmates to find your comedic voice, hone your point-of-view and develop a cohesive, fun and unique improv performance.

WRITING SKETCH COMEDY

In this course, we will learn to write original comedy sketches that get to the heart of what's funny, right away. We will experiment with different forms like tv and commercial parodies, topical humor, satire, presentational, character monologues, slice-of-life, and more. This is a writing-intensive course; be prepared to do a light amount of writing outside of class, as well as revisions based on peer and instructor feedback.
