Why Improv at The Nest? All kinds of people do improvisation; The benefits are multiple in the regular world – both for the extroverts that are seeking focus and sharpness, and the witty introverts that just need a little encouragement towards confident behavior. At the Nest, we truly believe if all teenagers had an improv class in formative years, the world would be a better place. Come play with us and see for yourself the change and joy this artform can bring!

Our teachers are licensed and education-based…as well as vaccinated! Our ethos is about fun and inclusion. Come play with us and see for yourself the change and joy this artform can bring. Registration is now live!
