Question from anonymous
Will this class still be fun and useful for people that have no prior acting or improv experience? How many people have done this class with no prior experience?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hey there! Please see the response from the Improvolution: "A majority of our students have absolutely no experience prior to taking this class. I would say around 75-80% have never taken an intro to Improv. It is very welcoming, informative and extremely fun. It truly is Improv for everyone." Hope this answers your question!
Answer from Lisa R. Verified Student
I went to some hole in the wall where we had to stand almost the whole time in a bldg above a bar with about 2 floors up to walk. Not very comfortable but for a one time trial I could cope. Never went back though for those reasons
