$40 per couple

This is the perfect way to strengthen or reconnect your relationship! Improvisation and relationships are rooted in the same beneficial skills: listening, support, and play. Not only will this one-day class be fun, but it will provide easy improv building blocks to take with you and apply to your own life! Our goal is to have you walk away from the class with a deeper connection, an open mind, and a smile. Say “yes, and” to your relationship and try improv with your significant other, with no pressure to be a performer. Make this Valentine’s gift one that actually makes a difference and cause beautiful, fun connection.

No improv experience necessary! Beginners welcome and encouraged.

**Only ONE ticket required per couple – must advance purchase – All couples welcome!

Class runs 7-9pm. Doors open at 650pm for 7pm class start. Glass of wine, soda, or water included in ticket purchase, too!

Level 4 Class – Tuesdays

Time to put all that prior work into practice. We’ll learn the structure of basic longforms like Armando (Storyteller), Montage/Commando, Shotgun, Bat, Monoscene, Beer Shark Mice, and WeirdAss. Rather than covering up our lousy scenework with a complex format, we’ll push our good scenework as to not get lost inside the construct of each form.

Not only that, but this level culminates in a Student Show!

Pre-requisite: Level Three, Teacher Approval
Tuesdays from 6:30-9:00pm
Jan 7, 14, 21, 28, Feb 4, 11

Level 3 Class – Tuesdays

Level 3 digs deep into scene work. The relationship between the characters on stage is the most important part of the scene. Get ready to focus on two-person scenes and explore multiple ways to lock into the heart of things.

Pre-requisite: Level Two
Tuesdays from 6:30-9:00pm

Level 1 Class – Mondays

Welcome to the formal program of improvisational training! Whether you want to perform, be better at team work or presentation for your job, or just be more engaged with your friends and family, this is the place to start!

In this course, we’ll jump into the beautiful world of “Yes, And” and study beginning fundamentals like basic games and the advantages of collaborative group work. We’ll enjoy exercises, talk basic theory, dive into basic scenework, push through object & environment, and establish the importance of relationship and truth onstage – and have an incredible amount of fun, getting away with pretending as adults.

6-Weeks
Mondays from 6:30-9:00pm
Jan 6, 13, 20, 27, Feb 3, 10

Level 2 Class – Mondays

In Level 2, we will begin using the idea of group play. Whether it is via shortform games (playing with pattern, heightening, pouncing on the fun), longform openings (group work, exploration of one theme together), or scenes (game of the scene), we will understand the importance of utilizing our power together and play with rather than against. Character work, both by mirroring and complementing, is also pushed in this level.

Pre-requisite: Level One

Mondays from 6:30-9:00pm
Jan 6, 13, 20, 27, Feb 3, 10
