IMPROV CLASSES AT VERGE THEATER

The improv curriculum here at Verge Theater is based on long-form improv principles, which include learning the basics of improv and improvisational scene work. Our classes give a solid foundation in the principles of acceptance, listening, and creative collaboration. 

Our classes are designed for all levels and help build confidence in public speaking, thinking on your toes, and having fun on stage in a supportive environment.

This is a progressive curriculum; students are expected to take Level 1 before graduating to advanced classes. Classes are once a week for 9 weeks. 

Generous payment plans and scholarships are available for those who may need assistance. Please contact Jessie at jessie@vergetheater.com or call at 587-0737 to set up a plan that works for you.

IMPROV PHILOSOPHY

Improv is about creating something that has never existed before. Creating something that is intriguing and, therefore, entertaining. Although there are many forms of improv, at Verge Theater, we strive to teach complex long-form storytelling techniques. We push students to engage in the intricacy of narrative by incorporating scene progression, climax, and resolution. We understand that what is funny is not straightforward, and we recognize that entertaining stories are those that engage the full range of human experience. We, therefore, privilege compelling character development and collaborative storytelling over comedy.

Students learn that through listening and working together, they can participate in fulfilling and collaborative storytelling.
