The Improv Program is a complete foundation in the principles of scenic improvisation as practiced at The Second City. Based in the work of Viola Spolin, this year-long program covers all elements of the improvisational process. Students begin in Level A with ensemble, environment, and object work and end in Level E by rehearsing and performing their own fully improvised show. Graduation from the Improv Program fulfills the improvisational prerequisite to audition for The Conservatory.
Level C and D students have demonstration performances at the end of each term. Level E culminates in a 45 minute, one act, fully improvised show.
$320/$290 early registration per level, 8 weeks, 2.5-3 hours
Improv Level A is offered every term
Prerequisites: No experience necessary
Note: Students who have completed a degree program in Theater should consider taking the Improvisation for Actors (IFA) classes.
