All students begin at Improv Level 1, Foundations, regardless of previous experience. Completion of Level 1 is not a guarantee of eligibility to take Improv Level 2, Scenework. There is a big jump to Level 2, and many students repeat the Foundations course to become confident with the development in Level 2. Students will receive an evaluation at the end of the course to determine the best route for students’ growth.
In addition to the instructor’s permission to move forward to the Level 2 class, other prerequisites include seeing at least one Held2gether performance and attending at least 6 of the course sessions (no more than two absences) for the 8-week course, and at least 5 of the courses sessions (no more than one absence) for the 6-week course.
Once you are enrolled in Level 2, you are eligible to become part of a Student Team. The Students Teams perform 20-minute sets at the H2g Jam, which performs the third Friday of each month.
Beyond Level 2 Scenework, students may be invited to participate in Performance based classes, Long Form Improv, Narrative and more!
Song Improv, Sketch Writing and Stand-Up Comedy require completion of Level 1 Foundations class only. Specialty one-off drop-in classes may be available as well. Please check prerequisites for these classes.
