Improv for Adults

Get bold. Get loose. Get silly. Our Improv Levels are a series of 6 week courses that will teach you how to celebrate mistakes, take big risks, laugh, breathe, laugh again and say YES! Let improv grow you in all the best ways as these classes show you how sometimes having no plan is the best plan, making things up on the spot is exactly where it's at and taking the stage can be a blast.
