Improv Class

Cool Beans U: Improv (for Stand-Up Comedy)

Class Overview:

Individuals will practice lessons in active listening, “yes, and-ing,” and creativity. The focus will be on becoming more engaged, promoting a sense of confidence and comfortability, and approaching each and every day-to-day task as a fresh experience. This class is great for actors and non-actors to learn the fundamentals of improv comedy in a playful and collaborative setting.

Work multiple times each and every week, honing new skills that will pay off whether you are on, or off the stage.
