The next round of classes will be held on Tuesday Nights in East Nashville starting in March with instructors Ryan Leyhue, Lacie Madison and Michael Kearney.

Intro to Improv  "So, you wanna learn improv!"
Instructor: Ryan Leyhue
This high energy & informative class will teach you the basics of improv comedy that will leave you grinning from ear to ear, learn how to take any suggestion given to you and turn it into full-length scenes, develop characters, pantomime, play games we perform on stage, and the meaning behind the two most important words in the improv vocabulary: YES AND. Students also receive a Nashville Improv Company Tee-Shirt!
No Improv experience necessary. 

Intermediate Improv 2B "Discovering your Inner Character"
Instructor: Michael Kearney

This character-based class will build on the fundamentals found in level one, while expanding on the individual's role in improv. You'll learn how to become a more commanding stage presence, instantly build memorable characters in short-form and long-form, and engage with your audience with realism and power.

Intro to Improv or equivalent experience is a prerequisite
