Improv is all about taking risks – it’s about diving into the unknown, without a plan, and saying YES to whatever is in front of you — and building on that. How fun! Once you practice taking risks in the safe space of an improv classroom, you will find yourself taking more risks in your auditions – and in your life!

Improv skills make us stronger, smarter and gives us the trust we need to realize our ideas are good ideas.  Knowing we can use our improv skills anytime gives us the freedom to take chances. When we take risks that others are scared to take…that’s when an exciting performance occurs. We shine as actors and as humans when we step past our fears.

Session ends with a fun, in-class share for family.
