All Girl Improv

Imagine a class filled with the likes of Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, and Kate McKinnon: sounds pretty great, right? We hope these famously funny females would approve of this class where we’ll learn to think on our feet, create original characters, and build confidence while working together as a team. So, what’s the answer to the age-old question, “who run the world?” Girls. And they run this improv class, too. Family and friends are invited to a short performance on the last day of class.
