ENROLLMENT NOW OPEN!
Level One: Intro to Improv
For beginners that have always wanted to pursue improv, for the adventurous looking to try something new, and for the veterans looking to reconnect with the basics. Intro to Improv brings in basic concepts like listening, “Yes and,” sharing focus, relationships, and generosity. Intro to Improv does not have a performance component, so class energy will be focused on these building blocks, applying them to scene work, and having fun.

- Create without judging your ideas
- Embrace failure without fear
- Take creative risks
- Build confidence

Let’s create something together! Ages 18 or older.

Drop-in classes are an exciting entry point into our friendly community. We have an abundance of great teachers ready to share their wisdom and show you a good time. You can also expect a few experienced performers to show up.
There is no experience required to attend a drop-in. The purpose is to give you a feel of what a class with the SIC might be like. By the end of the night, we hope you feel the trust and support the SIC thrives on, have a lot of laughs, and know whether you’d like to try Level One.

“I intended to only take Level One improv class to get myself out of my comfort zone. Now here I am finishing Level Three! Improv is more fun than I realized. I’ve learned to play as an adult, and I’ve met new friends in the process. I highly recommend these classes to anyone.”Rachel G.
