And since everyone is taking these classes together you'll work regularly and get to know with your classmates over these four weeks.

Space is limited to 8 people to ensure everyone gets ample stage time. Open to anyone with at least some improv experience. Not designed to be your very first course, but if you've taken a beginner's class and have a few scenes under your belt, then come on in.
