INTRO TO IMPROV: 3 HOUR DROP-IN CLASS

We offer an introduction to improv and what we do at Improvolution. It’s a fun and easy way to get a taste of what improv is…and is not. You’ll learn some of the basics in just 3 hours and see for yourself that truly ANYONE CAN IMPROVISE!

NEXT INTROS:
Tuesday, March 10, 7-10pm – with Sarah Hicks
Thursday, March 19, 7-10pm – with Mandi Bedbury
Info & Registration


DROP-INS

Stay sharp, learn more tools, meet other Improvolutionaries, learn from more experienced students, see how much you have developed by working with less developed students, and get a chance to keep pushing your edge. Oh…and it’s a lot of fun too.

Pre-req: LEVEL 1 GRADS

And students who take our drop-in classes are eligible and encouraged to perform in our monthly LOVEFEST improv shows.

CLASSES ARE HELD EVERY OTHER THURSDAY NIGHT & SATURDAY DAY STARTING TUES, JAN 13
