Sure, Improv is funny.
But there’s so much more to it than laughter.
Read what people have to say about our youth classes and camps, our family friendly touring shows & workshops and our private team building events for all ages.
I realized that improv isn’t about creating conflict or being the center of attention. It’s creating characters then establishing their relationships and getting the humor from that. I hadn’t understood that before. But now I get that it’s not just true in comedy, but also in life. – Teen Student
The people, the energy, feeling like we were layering on more ideas each week. I was scared to try it, but now I really love this. – Teen Student
As soon as I get here, I just feel happier. I think these are my people. – 10 year old student
I am a snowbird from Ithaca, NY, who is heading home soon. I spend the past 2 months in Kristin’s Wednesday afternoon Level 1 Improv class. What a joy!!! I learned a ton and pushed myself and had loads of fun. Thank you for creating such a vibrant improv community and welcoming me in.
If I were staying in Austin, I would be signed up for Level 2. Instead I will pine for next winter when I will head back to Austin and will sign up for a class then. Ithaca has a fledgling improv community and I will plan to keep my toes in the water in the meantime.
“I wanted to send a thank you on behalf of Perez Elementary to you & your team for sharing the your program with us these past couple of days. Especially after the hardships many of our students/staff faced last week, it was a much-needed time to laugh and have some interactive fun. Y’all have really figured out how to keep the momentum flowing, even on zoom. Not only that, but you masterfully guided students in processing the events of last week in a positive way. Thank you all so much for the energy and creativity you shared with us!” – Perez Elementary School Librarian
Great teacher. Great group. Kristin knew how to nourish the inspiration, connect with the students in more personal way, and recognized when we were having a learning experience even if it ran off course from the lesson (though she was always able to bring the two back together again)! – Workshop Participant
This workshop helped me relinquish control, push through uncomfortable moments, trust in myself and others, and encourage me to be silly and have fun. I also enjoyed the lack of judgement and ample patience and support everyone seemingly had for each other throughout. I honestly believe our workgroup will be better communicators and a stronger team as a result of this experience. – Workshop Participant
This is the first camp my daughter has attended since the pandemic began and she has had so much fun. She comes home and teaches us the games and character exercises you do each day. It’s been great for all of us to know she’s feeling so confident about what she’s learning. – Parent of Early Elementary School Camper
Thank you so much for entertaining us! Everyone was super nervous beforehand, but the short class at the start put everyone on the same page and the “Performance” we did after was hilarious. It was a unique opportunity for our team to see the hidden talents of other members. We will probably talk about it forever! – Private Event Participant
I wanted to follow up on our consultation with a thank you! The time you spent speaking with us about our group’s needs and the thoughtful responses and suggestions you provided have already been implemented in several ways and the difference is obvious! Thank you for listening to our needs and, in turn, providing us with tools to become better listeners! – Consultation Client
