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 three level program covers all elements of the improvisational process. The typical improv class meets once a week for seven weeks.
EXPRESS! Meeting twice-weekly, Improv Express explores the same concepts taught in each level but in a shorter time period! Same concepts, same fun, same cost!
