Commitment Classes

In these 8 week classes you will be learning and playing with the same group of people with the same instructor. You’ll have a chance to make closer connections, be a part of community, develop the fundamental improv skills, and if you’d like to, start getting stage time

Improv Fundamentals

The biggest myth about improv is that you need to be funny. What you need to be is yourself. Not the self you project to the world but who you truly are. For most of our students  – whether comedians, actors, or real people – improv is a journey of self discovery.  And, it’s a lot of fun.

The Socap Comedy style of improvisation is rooted in character, truth and human connection. Burgeoning artists, as well as most of us, share two common traits. One is we don’t truly listen. We hear the words people say but we don’t hear their meaning. The second is we’re self conscious. We worry that people will see the REAL us and discover that we’re not as confident, or smart, or as interesting as we project.  So we developed strategies to hide who we really are. We help you break through that as both an artist and a human being. The result is very empowering.

Whether you’re an improviser wondering why you’ve hit a plateau, an actor who wants to get better at being in the moment and listening, a manager who wants to be a more effective communicator, someone who wants to get better at human interaction, or if you’re just interested in human beings, this program is for you.

Geared towards those more interested in the fun, social skills, and ‘getting out of your comfort zone’ of improv. Also a great foundation for those just starting out in their improv careers.

Fundamentals 1 focusses on overcoming our fears, anxiety & doubts.  It’s about communication with other people. It’s about letting go of judgement. It’s about finding the joy of existing in the moment. The same skills that make great improvisers make great people.
