Anyone Can Learn Improv!

The skills needed to perform improv are easy to pick up. No need to be a natural comedian! Just say the words 'YES' & 'AND' and you're most of the way there! From this simple foundation, great scenes emerge magically. Our training will have you and your friends creating characters and hilarious scenes in the very first class!

Improv Makes Work More Fun!

The same YES-AND principles for creating great scenes can be used for team building and creativity in the workplace. Top corporations have integrated improv into their training and development programs. We can help your organization discover these principles while also having a massive amount of fun in our Improv for Business Workshops.

Improv Makes Life More Fun!

Learning improv is a blast! You will meet new people, ease anxiety, relieve stress after a long day of work, and be completely 'in-the-moment'. Improv classes are often referred to as 'Recess for Adults', 'Yoga for the Mind', and 'Cheaper than Therapy'. We guarantee you will laugh often during each and every class session!

What Our Students are Saying...

"I started taking improv classes just for fun -- the bonuses are that I feel more confident thinking on my feet at work and am a better, more supportive teammate." -Mike

"Reflex Improv helped me find and use my authentic voice with grace and ease. Lauren & Dan created a safe, fun, environment to not only learn how to be present and think on my feet... but to also laugh and have fun!" -Judy

What Makes Our Curriculum Special:

Open Classes

Ongoing classes for beginners wanting to learn and intermediate improvisers wanting to get practice and keep skills sharp. These are  extremely flexible for those with busy schedules who may not be able to attend six weeks in a row.

 

Our Open Classes are fast paced, fun, and we cycle through the main core lessons of improv over the course of six weeks, as well as mixing in new challenges to keep it fresh.

 

When you complete six 2-hour sessions in an Open Class, you'll have the fundamentals in place for a Troupe Class.

Troupe Tracks

Troupe Track Classes offer additional challenges for intermediate and advanced improvisers who have a firm grasp of the core and want to 'get serious' about learning new skills, formats, and advanced techniques. 

 

These classes are limited in size and can range from three to eight weeks in length depending on the course offering.

 

Upcoming courses include: Scenework, Character, Storytelling, The Harold, Dramatic Improv, and Pretty Flower.  

 

Troupe Track Classes include a student showcase performance.
