The only East End’s only improv drop ins! They range from beginner classes for someone trying improv for the first time to intermediate classes for those seeking to further hone their skills without the commitment of a weekly class.
All classes are $10 per session. Most of these classes are booked in advance and sell out, so RSVPing is recommended to guarantee your spot.
To reserve a spot, confirm the drop in teacher, class eligibility, and any other inquiries email Ralph MacLeod at firstname.lastname@example.org

Beginner Drop Ins
Improv For Beginners
2 classes every Saturday!
5:30pm-7:00pm (2nd floor) & 6:00pm-7:30pm (3rd floor)
Prerequisite: 18+ – All experience levels welcome!
Come Prepared to Laugh! These classes are geared towards newer and beginning improvisers. The atmosphere is very positive and supportive and during most of the class, everyone is on their feet trying everything out together. There is no judgment, only support.
You will learn simple, yet powerful, concepts that will allow you to be more spontaneous, fun, and engaging. We work hard to overcome fear, self doubt, and judgement by replacing them with joy, confidence and the incredible power of being positive. The exercises we cover are fun scenes but are also applicable to your professional and personal lives.
Teachers: Amanda Parker, John Richardson, Moniquea Marion, Cassie Barradas, Steve Hobbs, and Oliver Georgiou
Intermediate Drop Ins
Prerequisite: Core II or equivalent from another school.
