Our improv classes are a great way to get involved in The Comedy Project community, meet people and have fun! This is your chance to learn in a safe, supportive environment that challenges everyone to be better.
Level One: Students learn the fundamentals of improvisation in a playful, group environment. Students learn technical aspects of performing as well as the building blocks of improvisation including listening, agreement, making choices and working in an ensemble.
Level Two: Students build off the skills they learned from level one and apply them to different areas of improvisation including two person scenes, group scenes, complex short form games and moving into long form improvisation structures.
