About the Program

"Everybody can do improv and you should too!" -Think Fast Improv motto.

Improv is for everybody, and so are our classes! If you want to work on your speaking skills, or perform in front of a live audience, impress your friends, or make some new ones, Think Fast Improv has a class for you!
Our Weekly Drop in Class is great for anybody who wants to improve their communication skills and anybody that is new to improvisation. Classes have a monthly skill focus and feature the 'Game of the Week' to reinforce a skill while having fun. These classes are designed to let you participate in classes even if you have a busy schedule and have to miss a night or two.

The Intensive Sessions are designed around needs of our students who want form a team and perform. These sessions deliver the tools needed to succeed in front of an audience. The  Instructors create a lesson plan based on needs instead of a standardized lesson plan.


Success is the goal. A job well done rarely needs to be redone.
