New session starts this Sunday, January 29, 2017 at 12:45. We have a great roster but have room for a few more.
WHAT: IMPROV 101 COME PLAY WITH US!!!
Join us Sundays at 12:45 for 2-hours of Improv Comedy. We create a fun safe place to play and create original stories and scenes under the direction of professional Improv players from the cast of EIGHT IS NEVER ENOUGH (AKA LMAO Off Broadway). Geared towards young (and young at heart) professionals from all walks of life to play, network and develop valuable life skills for work and personal life.
Every session starts with a series of warm-ups that develop strong team and individual performance skills plus creativity, community and leadership skill sets (critical thinking, public speaking, self-confidence, listening, focus etc). Then we play traditional performance games. We believe in a performance geared education. These are both classes and rehearsal for a performance at the end of 8 classes. This adds just enough pressure and a goal to succeed. Psychological safety without performance drive leads to a place where we never push out our comfort zone.
Open to adults.
Must be 18 years old to participate (We have classes for teens 13-17 Saturdays 10am)

We have been slowly building this program for years, trying different times and different class styles. I think we finally hit our stride, at least the roster of new and return students would reflect that notion.
