IMPROV COMEDY for Adults & Teens

Level 1 & 2

 

Ever wanted to try improv comedy but never found the time? Dive into improv with our six-week Level 1 improv class.
 
Or have you already taken Level 1 and are ready for more complicated games with wilder challenges? And a public showcase at the end of the session? Then the Level 2 class is for you.
 
All classes are taught by professional improv master Lulu French. Lulu is a long-time member of Dreamcatcher’s popular improv troupe, Multiple Personality Disorder. You’ll learn how to think on your feet by freeing your mind, body and imagination through group exercises and games in a safe and supportive atmosphere.
 
These 6- or 8-week classes delve deep into the craft of improv with more complex games as the weeks progress. Improv is great for new or prior students of improv and also for actors who want to add another dimension to their skills. Improv is a valuable skill for auditions and job interviews, too! 
 
Please note: Because the class has both adult and teen students, it is most comfortable for older teens - but you know your child, so you can determine whether a mixed class is right for them!
If you’ve always been curious about improv, this is your chance! 
  • No experience required to begin
  • Learn traditional improv games
  • Explore your own creativity in a supportive environment
  • Develop spontaneity and learn how to shed your inhibitions
  • Not just for actors, but for anyone who wants to develop these skills
  • For actors who want to try another angle on performing
