Bird City Improv has moved its education program online. Each class includes a variety of activities, including group games, solo work, peer dialogue, breakout room exercises, improvisation and class reflections. Our classes are a chance to meet new people and laugh while learning a new skill. At the end of each lesson, we host an optional Happy Hour for students to socialize.
Classes are "low-cost to no-cost" with free and PWYC options to increase accessibility and disrupt classism. Our business model and curriculum are guided by a philosophy of wellness, equity, and social justice in the arts. Improvisation is the most team-oriented artform and its guiding principle "Yes, And" is predicated on affirmation and support. As such, our classes are inclusive spaces that respect individual experience, honor boundaries, and challenge systems of oppression.
If you're interested in signing up, all you need to join is a device with a webcam. You don’t need to be a “funny person.” You don’t need to know any jokes. You just need to be brave, willing to learn, and willing to laugh. Below is a list of our current offerings.
