You’ve seen musicals. You’ve seen improv. You’ve seen musical improv and now you’d like to try it, right? RIGHT?

Improvisation is a great way to break out of your shell. MUSICAL improv is a great way to break out of your shell with an extra side of jazz hands!

In this two part workshop, students will learn the basics of musical improv comedy. This class will focus on song structure, on the fly group movement, building want songs, and incorporating songs into scenes.

Accompanist will be provided.

Class dates: Monday, February 5th and 12th
Class times: 6:30pm – 8:30pm
