What is short-form improv?
Simply put, short-form is short funny improvised games and scenes. If you love improv comedy (a la “Whose Line is it Anyway”), lightning-fast reactions, and test your comfort zone while having a ton of fun, then this is for you.
Each session is a stand-alone lesson that focuses on various areas – scene work, character work, stage presence, etc. Typically includes warm-up games and various short-form improv scenes and exercises that work on performance and core skills.
Please register in advance before coming to class. We want to keep you informed in case of any last-minute changes.
