WHAT IS IT?
This online 2-hour virtual Intro is an introduction for anyone to learn the fundamentals of improvisation with our unique character-based approach. You will learn the basic tools, rules, and philosophy of improv through games, drills, and virtual scenes. . . All through your computer screen! This 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 such as: effective communication, listening skills, self-confidence, thinking on your feet (or at your keyboard), and the ability to successfully utilize online meeting platforms with ease. The benefits are limitless. And best of all, it’s fun! Yes, that’s right, FUN!

Anyone. Anywhere. We’re not kidding! Whether you’re a performer, banker, graphic designer, public speaker, sales rep, IT manager or lawyer, improv is honestly for anyone who wants to do it. While you are trying new baking recipes, restringing that old guitar, or on your 3rd 1000 piece puzzle, see if you like improvisation. See if you like our approach to improvisation.

AND Now More than Ever! Not only can our Virtual Intro-to-Improv enhance your professional presence online, it can also offer ways for you to thrive in your currently altered lifestyle.

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
