Dates: Saturday June 8th & Sunday June 9th
We have such a fun time in our very first improv class. We play like a child. We laugh.
We can’t wait to go back. Then, we take more classes, suffer miserable shows, get harsh notes, take more classes, do more shows. All the while, we sometimes forget to have fun. This workshop helps reignite the passion for improvisation.
