LEVEL 1 – LONG FORM INTRODUCTION:
Learn the theory and history of improvisation and practice how to create improvised scenes from nothing but an audience suggestion.

Build on Level 1 and develop unique characters and play them in scenes. This level helps you find your own unique comedic voice and begins building a group mind for your class.
LEVEL 3 – SCENIC:
Learn more about the scenic environment, while connecting scenes together. Build momentum in your scenes as we concentrate on two-person scenes. Continue to explore the power of group mind in an improv ensemble.
