Intro to Improv (Level 1)

Prevent sunburn, take an improv class in a dark basement! 

Summer 2019 Registration is OPEN!

Take this class.  It’s officially rated SPF 100+.

Need to turn your “nos” into “yeses?” Your doubts into confidence? Does your significant other ever ask “ARE YOU EVEN LISTENING TO ME?” Then you MUST take our Intro to Improv (“The 8 Week Class”).  It teaches you all the improv essentials:  
  • agree, add and build  
  • conquer fears
  • work collaboratively in an accepting environment
  • develop active listening
  • form connections with your partners
Give us eight weeks, and you’ll not only be able to do all of these things, you’ll be able to flaunt it all ON STAGE in a SHOW. In front of PEOPLE.

How? By using the same kind of two-person improvised scene work we use in our own shows.  We’ll show you all the tricks. Trust us, we’re doctors! (Well, we HAVE played them on stage at times…)  You can do this. You WANT to do this. Whether you’re brand spanking new to improv, coming back to it after finding your way back home,  or you’re a grizzled old improv veteran looking to rekindle his passion, this class is for you.

The 8 Week Class is offered on Monday nights, Wednesday nights, or on Saturday morning. Schedule and registration information appears below for each class.

(PLEASE NOTE: This class is for improvisers ages 18 and up. To perform in the graduation show, you must attend 6 out of the 8 classes. Westside Improv reserves the right to cancel class if enrollment fails to reach the minimum number of students necessary.)

Fee: $190
