  2. Intermediate Shortform - The Intermediate Shortform class is for those students that have learned the basics of improv and are ready to put them into action. The goal of this course is to introduce the students to the nature of shortform improv, learn the structure of a show, why we do the things we do, and most importantly how to turn on the charm when on stage. You will learn improv "games" typically included in a ComedyWorx(TM) show. All this leads to an end-of-course performance in front of family and friends. We are offering two sessions: beginning Monday August 31st (7 to 10 p.m.). There are six classes consisting of one day a week for six consecutive weeks.
    Instructor: Ashley Myers (Mondays 7 to 10 p.m.) &

    Class beginning: Monday, August 31st SOLD OUT

    Prerequisites: Intro-to-Improv

    Next Session (Session 6):

    Intermediate Class (only one) will begin:

  3. Advanced Shortform- This class provides the advanced skills necessary for participating in shortform improv performances. You will learn games and specific elements of the ComedyWorx(TM). This class includes two opportunites to perform in shows at the Worx.This class is scheduled privately in collaboration with Intermediate Shortform graduates.

  4. Longform - INTENSIVE(Fee: $200) - Our philosophy is simple -give you the concepts and tools and let you learn (with a coach) by performing. We believe the best way to learn is by doing and we provide the environment for you to do so. Our progam avoids the redundancy and dragging out the information over an extended period of time. This class is designed to prepare you directly for the advanced longform class (which is actual performances with a coach in front of a paid audience). In EIGHT (8)weeks we will teach you the basics, provide some practice, and all you need to know to get started with longform improvisation. The class will cover:
    Week 1: Agreement and Patterns
    Week 2: Group Mind and Teamwork
    Week 3: Characters and Emotion
    Week 4: Characters and Space/Object Work
    Week 5: Group Work
    Week 6: Forms and Show Structure
    Week 7: Picking a Form
    Week 8: Putting it all together
    Student teams will be formed for the advanced class from the graduates .
    Instructors: Philip Boyne &
    Ashley Myers (team instructors)
    (Sundays 6 to 9 p.m.)

    Class beginning: Sunday, July 12th SOLD OUT

    Prerequisites: Intro-to-Improv
