Improv Mini Series: Jumpstart! says
We're kicking off our brand-new school of improv with a four-week intro to improvisation. Whether you've met improv before and want a new perspective, or whether you'd like to try your hand at it for the first time, why not start bright and early in the new year! This entry-level class will give you a taste of the "secret" of how improvisors work together to make something delightful and hilarious from nothing. You'll learn to free up your own creativity and build an interesting character, flesh out a new world, and tell a good story. No stage (or improv!) experience is necessary in order to take this class. If you're a writer, a shy person, an outgoing person, an actor, a storyteller, or just someone who wants to have fun, this class is for you.

Jumpstart! Mini-series:

UPDATED: 4 weeks: now January 15 - Feb. 5
