Which Classes?

We offer two core classes that cover the fundamentals - 'Organic Core' and 'Premise Core.' Try those if you're new to improv (organic is suggested first). Besides those, everything is an elective meant for intermediate and advanced improvisers. Take what appeals to you. See our course catalog for more info.


We pick teams from our students. Teams run for 3-5 months. There are no auditions. To qualify, you simply have to taken any multi-week class within the last year or so. For online teams, we will ask for applications by emailing recent online students before we pick a new batch. For in person teams, we simply invite students from classes of the previous year.


To stay up to the date join one of our online communities and discussion groups. We have a Facebook group and a Discord channel. For more details on those, check out our community page.
