Improv class

Conor O'Rourke

Beginning Improv

May 27 - July 1

Five weeks on Wednesdays, with instructor Conor O'Rourke. Learn improv and have a great time!

Course Description

Learn the fundamentals and games used in improv! You'll be introduced to the principle of "yes, and" and how it's used to weave a scene together. The class aims to help with communication, teamwork, and having fun. While students are coached to learn new games and skills, less time is spent on preparing for a performance -- these sessions help you get a little out of your comfort zone and try something new with others that want to try it too. This class is for people who have never tried improv before, and for experienced players who are looking to explore and expand their skills.

  • Wednesdays, May 27 - July 1 (off June 24), 7:00 - 9:30 p.m.
  • Tuition: $250
  • All classes are 18 and over. Once payment is made, there are no refunds, exchanges or cancellations.
