CIC Theater offers advanced long-form improvisation classes to improvisers who have completed a long-form improv training program or have one year of long-form improv experience. The classes are designed towards individual growth, rather than the teaching of a doctrine. CIC’s long-form program is made up of 4 eight-week levels. Each eight-week level will focus on a different aspect of ensemble improvisation.

  • Each class will run for 8 weeks and will be limited to 16 students.

  • Cost is $250 per class.

  • All Levels will be offered in succession on the same day, at the same time.
