Discover the Best Improv Classes in Houston

Improvisational theater, also known as improv, is a popular form of ensemble acting. Improv requires you to be spontaneous and think on your feet to create a scene. Actors engaging in improv (also referred to as players) will come up with dialogue, characters, settings, and scenarios with no prior planning. This requires them to be imaginative and good at problem-solving. 

Improv dates back centuries to ancient Greece, where actors would put on farces where they improvised dialogue. Improv then became popular among street performers before becoming more professional in the 20th century. Improvisational comedy clubs and improv-centered television shows became a staple in the West. These performances propelled many comedians and improvisational actors to household-name status. 

Improv has low barriers to entry. You can perform improv professionally or you can perform scenes with and for a group of friends. This makes it a great activity for professional actors who’re looking to improve their skills and those who are looking for a fun game to enjoy with friends. 

Why You Should Learn Improv in Houston

Improv can be used as a tool for overcoming stage fright and fear of public speaking. Actively engaging in an improv class for 20 minutes has been shown to reduce anxiety. Although you’ll have to get used to performing in front of others, gaining experience with improv can help make you more comfortable and confident performing in front of others. 

Improv can improve your confidence and comfort in front of an audience in part because of the chance of failure. Improv requires you to think on your feet and quickly come up with appropriate dialogue for a scene. You’ll also need to be able to convey the emotions and feelings of a character you’ve only just come up with. This makes improv challenging, but it will ultimately acquaint you with failure. As you practice more and more, you’ll understand how to move on from failure and prevent it in the future. 

Taking an improv class is also a great way to meet and socialize with people in your area. Participants of an improv class all have an interest in improv, so taking a class will expose you to others who have similar interests and can trade tips and tricks with you. 

In-Person Improv Classes in Houston

In-person improv classes are offered in the Houston area for all skill levels. Beginner, intermediate, and advanced learners can sign up to take an improv class taught by a professional at a local school, theater, or club. The instructor will provide you with valuable feedback and in-depth demonstrations. They’re also available to answer any questions you have. 

You can find new and returning improv classes that are available to you on CourseHorse. Each class’s page will summarize the class’s content and the schedule. Previous classes taught in Houston have introduced participants to improv and taught the basics of long-form improv. Check CourseHorse frequently to see if any improv classes are being taught in your area that you’d like to sign up for. 

Virtual Improv Classes 

If there aren’t any improv classes being taught in your area or if there are, but they don’t fit your schedule, you can sign up for a virtual improv class. 

Virtual improv classes are offered remotely at all skill levels and focus on a variety of improv principles. Like in-person classes, virtual classes are taught by a professional instructor who can teach you the principles of improv and serve as a resource to ask questions. 

Virtual improv classes are taught over an online video platform, which means you can take your class from your home or office so long as the environment is interruption-free, and your internet connection is stable. This is a perfect opportunity if you’re looking to learn improv but can’t make the commute to a class. 

Actor’s Improv Studio offers an online improv class for all skill levels. This class focuses on accessing your creativity and committing to spontaneous yet strong choices through improv that can be applied in your professional and personal life. 

Kissin Improv offers a two-in-one improv coaching class. If you don’t have experience with improv and would like one-on-one instruction before putting yourself in a classroom setting, this class is a good choice. You’ll receive 50 minutes of coaching in the fundamentals of improv before beginning the class. This coaching will be either private or one-on-one. Your instructor will also contact you beforehand to get an understanding of your improv background.

Is your business or organization looking to book a team-building event to facilitate better communication and teamwork? CourseHorse has private group improv classes that can do both.

Like the team-building workshop, participants will work through improv games and exercises.
