What we're about

This group offers weekly improv classes & performance opportunities appropriate for all levels, even those with zero experience.

-- Are you a bit shy and looking to get more comfortable with your public speaking?

-- Are you a working professional hoping to be a bit more spontaneous during your meetings and interactions with co-workers?

-- Or are you an actor or improv comedian looking to take your craft to the next level?

Then this is the group for you!

In the weekly class I offer, you will learn the fundamentals of scene work (role playing) and work through various exercises designed to help make your scene work more successful. You'll be on your feet quite a bit as I'm believer that you learn (and have more fun) through doing rather than hearing an instructor talk. Brief individual notes will be given, if that's what you're looking for, and tailored to your level of experience. At the end of each class, I'm confident you'll feel a sense of accomplishment that will leave you more energized and excited to tackle the challenges of everyday life, whether at your work place or in your personal life.

In the weekly jams which are always free, you will have an opportunity to try improv on a stage in a low pressure supportive environment.

There are also free comedy shows in which I invite established improv groups and sometimes other comics. One way to learn improv is also to watch other more experienced groups do improv, which can give you inspiration.

If these are elements you would look for, this group may be worth a try. Alternately, if you know of anyone who is looking for an affordable but satisfying improv experience - beginner or otherwise, please send them my way.

Hope to see you there,

Steve
