Improv at the Eldredge

Improvisation is a common tool for drama students: it's a staple of drama and theater departments in colleges and high schools across the nation. Improv is also a great way to gain self confidence, experience self expression, and hone the ability to think on your feet. This series of workshops allows students to explore the dramatic art of improvisation in a safe, friendly environment. Classes are led by EPL staff or visiting professionals. Check the calendar for upcoming classes.
