Intro to Improv

Santa Fe Improv’s next introductory classes have been scheduled and you're invited! The SF Improv teacher will guide you in a simple and fun process to learn the beginning techniques of improv.

And make no mistake, improv is something anyone can do. It doesn't take an actor or comedian or class clown to be good at it. It only takes the desire to learn something new and have fun! 

Why take improv? The benefits, besides getting to play like a kid when you're an adult, are numerous. Enhanced communication skills and, interestingly, a heightening of social courage, seem to be a part of the deal. Spontaneity and creativity are given free reign. All you have to do is say, "Yes, and..."
