NY Improv Program

level image Improv 101 through Improv 401 make up our core Improv Program. In these courses you will learn how to improvise game-based comedic scenes and the Long Form structure known as the "Harold".

The Improv Advanced Study Program is open to all students who pass Improv 401 and wish to continue taking classes. The program offers a wide variety of classes including ones on specific aspects of improv, drilling the Harold, and different forms.

This class introduces the basics of how to perform long-form improv. Students will learn how to use "yes-and," playing at the top of your intelligence, active listening and support to create comedic improvised scenes.
