How It Works

What Is This Place?

We are an improv grad school. That means we don't have introductory classes. We offer intermediate and advanced level courses for people with some long-form improv experience. You certainly don't need to be an expert to take our classes, but we expect you've done some basic yes-anding and getting suggestions - that type of thing.

How Does It Work?

You enroll in classes on this site. When you do, you'll get an email with either the physical address if it's an in-person class, or a zoom link if it's an online class.

How Do I Enroll?

First, you sign in to the site (click 'login' in the nav bar at the top). You enter an email, we send you a link. No passwords.

Once signed in, you click on a class and then "enroll" to enroll. If it's full you can join the waiting list.

After you are enrolled, you'll get an email with either a physical address or a link to a Zoom session.

A lot happens over email. That's how you'll get reminders, updates, etc.

What Classes Do You Offer?

We don't currently have an introductory class. Instead we have two core classes that we offer. Each is 8 weeks long. There are no pre-requisites really. Take whichever one you want. If you don't have an opinion, we recommend taking Organic Core first, and then Premise Core.

These two core classes train you in the basics for doing any long-form improv.

Organic Core
Improv scenes off of just a suggestion. Play it real, accept offers, frame the unusual thing, heighten and explore.
Premise Core
Use an opening to inspire the beginnings of your improv scenes. Starting moments, framing someone as unusual, staying grounded.

See the list of classes to see which of these are being offered soon.

You can also see a list of every class we've offered.

How Can I Find Out When You Post More Classes?

There's no fixed schedule of when we post them. It depends on when the teachers are available to teach. The best way to stay abreast of new classes is join our Facebook Group or our Discord chat server (for more info on those see our community page).

How Do I Pay?

See how to pay for our payment options.

If you drop out of a class with less than 24 hours notice, we may ask you pay anyway. If we fill your spot, we'll refund you.

Do I Need Prior Experience?

Usually you decide if you're ready by reading the description of the class. Some classes have specific pre-requisities. If you're not sure, email Will (address at bottom of site) and he might grant an exception.

How Can I Meet The Other People Doing This?

We have an active online community. Read about shows, chat, teams and more on our community page.

Mailing List

Our mailing list is the best way to be kept up on new classes.

You are NOT automatically put on a mailing list when you take a class. You have to explicitly sign yourself up.
