BYC (BUILD YOUR CHOPS) – IMPROV WORKOUT SESSIONS
Our new & improved version of Drop-In class. We wanted to change the thinking around them which is why we changed the name. They aren’t merely “drop in” classes, they are an option for students in between classes who want to continue to learn. They will have a class-like feel instead of a “in the meantime” feel. BYC sessions will consist of a series of 3-4 classes emphasizing an aspect of improv such as characters, adding information, or listening. There will also be a show that you can sign up for as well.
