Adult Classes and Workshops

 adult class

Our adult classes and workshops focus on long-form improvisation.  Each workshop is different, covering a huge range of skills and techniques including relationship, movement, voice, object-work (mime), presence, awareness, teamwork, vulnerability, and much more.

We work with spontaneity, connection, and discovery - creating scenes that may be comedic or dramatic, but are always ultimately genuine and human.
