Free Improv Class

NEWS FLASH! Tuesday’s class is full but we’ve added another FREE class on Wednesday night from 6:00 – 8:30. Please contact [email protected] to hold your place.

The next free classes will be at the Santa Fe Improv space (1213 Mercantile, Suite D) on:

  • Saturday, June 2, 2018 from 1:00 – 3:30 PM
  • Tuesday, June 5, 2018 from 6:00 – 8:30 PM

To get a spot in a free class, contact us with a brief bio that includes any improv experience you have. Experience isn’t necessary but it’s helpful for us to know what kind of training you have.

“I love transitioning from the work day to improv classes with Kate! She is sharp, funny, and supportive, and she really challenged me to shift gears and use a different part of my mind. She helped me to trust myself, go with my intuition, and let go of the need for perfection. Interestingly, all of these skills and practices, in addition to being quite fun, have helped me immensely in my personal and professional life.”

Stephanie Hubley, elementary school principal

 

What happens at the free improv class?

You’ll be part of a group of about 10-18 people and we’ll play improv games. All are welcome. Please note that the class is somewhat physically active and the games are played standing and moving around onstage. Here are some of the top ten benefits of learning improvisation.

What if I don’t get into the program?

It’s possible that we will not have enough spots in the program. If that happens we will add you to the waiting list or we will open another class.

What if I don’t have any improv experience?

That’s totally fine. Many of the best improvisors we have worked with began with zero experience and the class is designed to make it easy for anyone to quickly learn how to improvise.

What if I’m a more experienced improvisor?

Our program is designed to attract more advanced players like you, and yet still be accessible to a wider group of people.

The way we do this is with our unique curriculum that combines best practices from various improv schools (e.g. character-based techniques from the Groundlings, “game” techniques from UCB, scenic choices from Second City) to help everyone access their strengths and grow more quickly.

How long will it take for me to get good?

There’s a lot you can learn in just one class. That said, improvisation is a practice – like yoga or meditation or physical fitness. The truth is that everyone has their own expectations and goes on their own journey, and there’s no way to tell how long it will take for you to reach your goals. That said, improv is fun, and that makes it easy to practice regularly.

Can I share this information with friends?

Yes, absolutely.

What do I need to do next?

To get a spot in a free class please send us an email with a brief bio that includes any improv/theater experience you have.

Thanks, and we look forward to hearing from you!
