Improv Training at Carolina Improv is not just for comics and actors! It’s for anyone seeking personal and professional development to be a better co-worker, leader, friend, spouse or overall person! AND, it’s like a play date for adults! No experience necessary.

Why take an CIC improv class, you wonder??? Carolina Improv will change your life in so many ways. It will help you:

  • Get over your fear of failure
  • Respond quickly in the moment
  • Listen actively and communicate more effectively
  • Collaborate with and engage others
  • Resolve conflicts
  • Be more inclusive

By teaching the fundamental and advanced skills of improv, we make it easier for people to engage in training and in relationships on stage and in life.

At Carolina Improv, we do not encourage people to try to be “funny”. As the art of improvisation becomes easier, people become more confident and comfortable in social situations, work situations and on stage in front of an audience. Life is often funny and humor is the by-product of improv training. Our style of teaching and training is one of non-judgment, safe space, acceptance of ideas, encouragement and team approach.If you’re nervous about taking a class, you’re not alone. Everyone starts out that way and then they wonder what took them so long to sign up!

CIC provides an environment perfect for all – experienced improvisers, aspiring actors, CPAs, attorneys, customer service representatives, and every other average John or Susan venturing into the world of improv comedy as a break from the weekly routine or forced into in business training. Escape the real world and take a well-deserved break –it’s like a play date for adults. Be a child for a few hours every week!
