Thursdays, 6:30 - 8:30 PM, beginning February 1, 2024

For actors and non-actors, improv’s gifts are abundant:  for a stronger personal presence, for more joy/fun, and for personal development.

Core improv skills such as “yes and,” “listening,” and “agreement,” build into many other next-level skills that help us co-create new universes with our scene partners, develop on-the-fly great characters & emotionality, expand our capacity for humor, and more.

Improv is also ridiculously fun and funny (with 14 other like-minded new friends)!  Who wants two hours of ongoing laughter every Monday night for nine weeks?

Finally, improv is a uniquely fun source for personal development skills, including:  enhanced confidence, impromptu public speaking skills, co-creativity/teamwork best practices, and the discovery of performance skills you didn’t know you had!

Join Ivy and many new friends for a very special improv adventure at WBTT!
