Make Your Partner Look Good (Valentine's Day Improv Workshop)
Love is patient, love is kind... love makes bold choices and says "yes, and!"

If you're looking for a unique romantic experience this Valentine's Day, look no further-- come to Sea Tea Improv Studios and learn all about spontaneous fun with your date. In this workshop designed for couples of all kinds (first dates or fifty years married, we don't care!), we'll show you how improvisational games can reinforce good communication, listening, flexibility, and most importantly, a sense of humor. Even if you've never improvised before, this workshop will be a blast and give you an experience you'll laugh about together for Valentine's days to come.

And who will be teaching this workshop de l'amour? Two of the co-founders of Sea Tea Improv, Greg Ludovici and Julia Pistell, who have been dating for a decade. Greg and Julia have found great joy and humility in laughing at each other every week, and they can't wait to share that with you. And we promise there won't be massive Shakespearean misunderstandings in which we accidentally poison ourselves at the end of the workshop-- we're more romantic than that, Romeo!

Instructors: Julia Pistell & Greg Ludovici

6:30PM to 8PM

It's a great way to start your night before dinner in Downtown Hartford!

Hanging with Harold - Weekly Drop-In Jam
Hanging with Harold is not a class or a workshop. It's not a show, either. It's a learn-by-doing drop-in jam where Sea Tea Improv and members of the improv community (that's you, just by showing up!) perform a kind of longform improv together known as the Harold.

"You'll have to do about a hundred Harolds to start feeling comfortable with the form." - Matt Besser, founding member of the Upright Citizens Brigade

We will keep track of the cumulative number of Harolds done by each participant from week to week. Each week, we will do 1, 2 or 3 Harolds (time depending), and everyone who participates will add to their Harold total toward everyone's personal goal of 100 completed Harolds.

Who will be first to reach 100 Harolds completed?

$5 per person
