Improvisational Theater

Enjoy continuous laughs and learn to think on your feet and perform in situations using nothing but your quick wits.

Who needs a script when you can make up what you want to do or say as you go along? This class is not only a blast of continuous laughs, it teaches you to think on your feet and get through seemingly impossible situations using nothing but your quick wits. To help you make up things in a moment’s notice, you’ll loosen up with mood skits, body language games, and more. You’ll act in talk shows, interviews, and skits, getting the experience needed to create an entire show to perform while making everything up as you go. By the time you hit the stage to perform you won’t have to worry about forgetting any of your lines — because you won’t have any to start with!

I've never done anything like the kinds of things we do in Improv. It's like, every day, there's a new activity or exercise that we're trying out. It's never the same thing twice and it's always hilarious.
