Classes

Atlas Improv's philosophy emphasizes character-based storytelling, and, through our classes, we pass it on to our students. Besides being fun, comprehensive, diverse, and dynamic, our classes also build confidence, teamwork, leadership, and decision-making skills.

Class Information

Lose inhibitions, make some friends, and learn the basics of improvisation in our introductory course. This ten-week class meets once a week and is taught by our trained professionals. We'll give you top-notch training in pantomime, characters, and story-telling, while preparing for a performance on the Atlas Improv Co. stage. The class costs $185 or $130 for students, educators and veterans. No previous experience necessary.

Each of our classes builds off of the one before, so we ask all students who are new to Atlas begin with our Level 1 course. Please contact our education coordinator at edu@atlasimprov.com with any questions.

What Our Students Say

"I took the level I because I wanted to improve in something that scared me. I took level II because level I was so much fun."


"Each week we built on previous lessons. I had fun every week, felt challenged each class, and learned something new each week."


"The instructors were nothing but helpful and encouraging."


"It was great! I still can't believe I did it. I remember seeing an improv show a couple of years ago for the first time, feeling nervous FOR the performers."


"I took improv because I wanted to keep my mind sharp. Stay on my toes! Specific goals were to develop characters and try out different personalities."
