Our Level 1 course consists of 5 weekly 3-hour classes, covering the basics of improv theater. Learn the fundamentals of improv in a fun, structured way with us! We’ll be covering the basics, including how to make that first step onto the stage, creative process with your partners, and building an entire environment from nothing at all.

Learn how to get an audience engaged in your story without ever touching a script! Previous Students can take what they’ve learned to expand their professional opportunities on stage and off stage across Tokyo. Others bring the skills they’ve learnt into their lives, their workplaces and their homes. Come and learn just how incredible a simple, “Yes, and!” can be!
