Why should you take an improv or stand-up class?

Improvisation, or “improv,” is what you see on the hit TV show, Whose Line is it Anyway? Besides being great training for performers, improv helps you think on your feet, handle tough situations with ease, and the classes are tons of fun. This class is taken by people who want to expand their skills and discover new talents. Even if you don’t want to perform on stage, this is a great skill to learn. If this sounds intimidating, remember that the majority of our students have no experience before joining class and they come from all walks of life. Classes meet once a week for two hours. The Beginning course is eight weeks, then you can move on to more advanced training if you like. Give it try; after all, there are plenty of good reasons why you should try improv, but we can’t think of one why you shouldn’t.

Stand-Up Comedy  You may want to be the next Jerry Seinfeld or Ellen DeGeneres, or you may just want to cross I performed comedy off your bucket list. We have trained hundreds of people the subtle art of comedy. This four-week course teaches you the fundamentals of humor, so you can use laughter to your advantage in everyday life. The class culminates with your big debut; performing in a recital for family and friends at our cabaret at the Chanhassen Dinner Theatres. How seriously do we take comedy? Stevie Ray designed the course himself, based on his personal experience as a nation-wide performer, having opened for such stars as Paula Poundstone and “Weird Al” Yankovic. Plus, Stevie is the only person in the country to have designed his own college degree to study humor.
