What you'll learn in this improv class:

This three hour workshop will give you an understanding of WHAT makes improv work and WHY it works…and a new confidence that you…yes, even YOU…can do it. Plus, you’ll have new skills to help you in work, and life! More effective communication, less self-consciousness about in speaking in public, an easier access to thinking on your feet, and the ability to listen without an agenda.

Whether you’re a performer, banker, comedian, graphic designer, public speaker, sales rep or lawyer, improv is honestly for anyone who wants to do it. The benefits are limitless. And best of all, it’s fun!

We stand behind our motto that…”ANYONE can improvise!” with 16 years of teaching experience. The Groundlings has been the go-to place to learn improv for thousands of people, boasting alums like Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig, Lisa Kudrow, Will Forte, Kathy Griffin, and Cheryl Hines…to name a few. Holly trained and performed over 8 years there before moving to New York and starting her own school. So….you’re in good hands.

Question from Nadine A.
I am enrolled for this class tonight (11/15/18) at 7-10 pm. The location listed here is different from the address listed in my recent reminder email. Please advise which is the correct location.
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Nadine! The class is located at Studios 150 (On 150 West 46th Street) in Studio 7.3.
Question from anonymous
Will this class still be fun and useful for people that have no prior acting or improv experience? How many people have done this class with no prior experience?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hey there! Please see the response from the Improvolution: "A majority of our students have absolutely no experience prior to taking this class. I would say around 75-80% have never taken an intro to Improv. It is very welcoming, informative and extremely fun. It truly is Improv for everyone." Hope this answers your question!
Answer from Lisa R. Verified Student
I went to some hole in the wall where we had to stand almost the whole time in a bldg above a bar with about 2 floors up to walk. Not very comfortable but for a one time trial I could cope. Never went back though for those reasons

Sarah was a fantastic instructor. She kept the entire class engaged, active, and learning on a Tuesday evening. She has an enviable talent in making the whole group feel comfortable and able to fully participate in a safe space. I learned a lot from my experience with Sarah and I made new friends along the way. I absolutely recommend this course!

So much fun, despite the ridiculous weather, was happy to participate with so many people. It was my first time doing improv and am definitely interested in taking another class. Can definitely see the benefits of being able to think on the spot, stay positive, and not give a **** about "mistakes".

This class was moved the day before and only some people were notified (not me). I wrote course horse an email that night and haven’t heard back from them about a refund.
