Want to extend your learning beyond core improv classes?  Electives and workshops are led by our talented ensemble members and special guests and cover a wide variety of themes.  Workshops are typically one time offerings of 2 to 3 hours and electives typically run the same 7 weeks as the core classes.


Dedicated to continual growth, we invite master instructors from near and far to teach intensives and in-depth workshops. See workshop descriptions for skill levels.
