While in our improv class, students will explore their creative minds and gain the confidence to embrace the fundamentals of improv. Students will sharpen their quick minds and develop knowledge of improvisation through improv exercises used in Second City, UCB (Upright Citizens Brigade), and even games from the popular improv show “Who’s Line Is It Anyway.”
