Improv Classes, all levels, start this week at ComedyCity

ComedyCity Improv School is in session, with classes for new improvisers and experienced performers.

ComedyCity Improv School works like this:
—Most people start with ComedyCity Improv 101: The Basics, where you'll work on listening, give and take, working as a team, agreement, and building on
—After you've got the basics down, it's time for our scenework classes, Improv 201. You'll learn how to create characters, relationships, and environments—
as well as focus on dialogue that moves the scene forward.
—Our advanced class, Improv 301, is about improving and enhancing your craft as an improviser. You'll learn new tools and approaches for building scenes
and characters, and exploring the space.

Classes are 8 weeks long each, and run two and a half hours. Classes cost $125—register by 1/31/15 and save $25. Classes are open to students 18 and
older. (We encourage younger students to look into the Seriously Playful high school improv league: operationshow.org)

For people who just want to give improv a try, actors who want to work their improv muscles, and experienced players who want to learn new skills and get
extra stage time, we also offer Improv Workout—weekly drop-in classes with no prerequisite. Each session includes a warm-up to get everyone present and
in the moment, exercises to explore specific skills, games and scenes that use those skills, and wrap-ups to apply that skill in your world. Class will typically
run from 7-9:30—may vary based on the number of students. Cost is $10/student, $15/adult (cash, check, credit)

ComedyCity instructors are the most experienced players, directors, and producers in the Kansas City.
