about Improv

“Fun! It’s fun and collegial. You meet so many interesting and vibrant people… you look around and say we’re not old, we just have old bodies.” - Marcia, 68, performing arts student

Some of life’s best moments are unplanned. The same is true on the stage: the spontaneous power of improv has been known to unleash some serious joy. Put down your cliff notes and take a chance. Jumping off the deep end is easier with a group of supportive, giggling cohorts surrounding you. Improv classes are designed to help beginning and advanced students explore a range of characters, scenarios and emotions. Experience improv’s giddy and unpredictable energy in a supportive, yet challenging environment.

Our Fall classes meet Monday-Friday, September 24-December 7; there are no classes the week of November 19-23. Registration for Winter 2019 classes will open in late November. Stay tuned for more information about Winter 2019 classes on our website and newsletter. To register over the phone or if you have any questions, please give us a call at 510-444-4755 or email info@stagebridge.org

Stagebridge's improv instructors includes Reid Davis, Martin Holtz, Mona Thompson, and Shara Tonn.

To ensure that you receive personal attention, we’ve limited class size, which means that some classes do fill. If a class you're interested in has a wait-list, we encourage you to sign up and attend the first day of class, as we often have spots open up in the first week.
