My 17 year old daughter wants to try improv I see this is for 18 and older is there something similar for her
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! If you will allow her 17-year-old daughter to attend the class, then that's fine with them. They will inform the Drop-In class instructor about it.

Question from Daniela C.
Hi! I've never taken an improv class. Would this drop-in be too advanced for me? Thanks!
Answer from Elizabeth M. Verified Student
I took my first improve class last Friday and then went to the drop-in the next day (so I was still very much a beginner). I will say I was definitely the least experienced person there-- lots of people who've gone through the levels already are regular attendees at the drop-in. So it was nerve wracking but not a disaster. Everyone is very supportive. Also, if you want to just try out a one-time class and would prefer to be with other beginners, check out Magnet's free Friday night classes :)
