Improv changes lives!

Planet Ant offers classes in long form improv and sketch writing. Both programs are appropriate for students of all skill levels.

We bet you've been to an improv show at Planet Ant and thought, "They sure look like they are having fun. I wish I could do that." Guess what? You can! The Planet Ant Training Center offers a full line-up of six-week classes for beginning and experienced students looking to learn the ins and outs of long-form improv comedy and comedy writing.

You'll learn from some of the area’s best and most seasoned instructors –the same people you see performing with the Home Team each week. We pride ourselves on creating a safe and nurturing environment while providing frank, constructive feedback that will push students creatively to become better actors, better writers, and better improvisers.

We hope you are ready to sign up now, but maybe you  want try before you buy. Check out one of our free Taste of Improv Workshops for a sneak peak of what are classes are all about.
