Go U offers classes for a wide range of experience levels and personal motivations. Think you're the funniest person in the office and want to take that to the stage? Wish you could be more confident when speaking in front of others in a professional setting? Already performing and looking to hone your skills? We can place you in a class that is right for you. Taught by the best working improv teachers in town, these classes are a great way to meet new people and push yourself to do something new, fun and challenging.
The Improv Academy is broken into four programs: Intro and Advanced Improvisation, Skills, and Sketch Comedy Writing. We also offer Workshops. Classes are $225 ($150 for the teen classes!) and run for eight weeks. Our next term begins August 11, 2014. The last day to register is August 8, 2014. If you register after this date, you will be charged a $25 late fee. Please do not sign up for a later class unless you have taken the previous classes, or checked with Go U staff.
Classes are for 18 and up ONLY! If you are younger, check out our offerings for students under Go Youth, or email us with questions.
