Improv is for everyone. Whether you’ve got dreams of being a comedian, or you want to strengthen your public speaking skills, or you’re just sick of your board game collection, improv can help.
In this class, Sea Tea Improv will introduce the basic techniques and games that professional improvisers and comedy writers use to collaboratively discover fun ideas, characters, and scenes. You’ll work in teams, so you’ll never be left hanging alone. Our number one rule is “make your partner look good,” so come try improv in a supportive, no-pressure environment, and learn from a professional improviser!
