Acting without a script? That’s Improv! This class teaches basic improvisational skills as well as improving students’ abilities to think on their feet! Students will learn how to create a scene, character, and conflict in a matter of seconds as they master the rules of improvisational acting. Upon completion of this course, students will have experience in the following areas:
  • The basic tenets of Improv
  • Thinking creatively and quickly as a team
  • Effectively initiating and navigating the necessary steps involved in creating an Improv scene
After completing this class students will be ready to audition for CYT Phoenix's Improv Team, which trains and performs over the course of the rest of the school year.

This class is held at our Studio in Scottsdale.

Taking this class in the fall is not required in order to be eligible to audition but is encouraged. If you competed on our Improv team last year, you are not required to take the introductory course before auditions.
Prerequisite: Basics of Acting
