At Carolina Improv, we're all about equipping people with the essential skills of improv, whether you're a beginner or seasoned pro. Our goal? To empower you to thrive on the stage of life.

Our teaching philosophy revolves around creating a non-judgmental, supportive space where everyone's ideas are valued, and collaboration is key. Worried about stepping into a class for the first time? Don't sweat it! Feeling nervous is totally normal, but trust us, you'll soon be wondering why you didn't join sooner!

You might also be concerned (or overconfident) about your comedic skills. Here's the scoop: we don't pressure anyone to be "funny." As a matter of fact, we don’t want anyone signing up because “everyone tells me I’m funny.” Instead, we focus on honing your improvisational abilities, fostering confidence, and boosting comfort levels in any social or professional setting. As our founder likes to say, "funny happens" naturally as a result of  improv training—because let's face it, life is full of humor!

Whether you're a seasoned performer or a newcomer to the world of improv performance, our classes are tailor-made for you. From aspiring actors to accountants, lawyers to customer service reps—everyone is welcome to escape the daily grind and indulge in a well-deserved play date for adults. So go ahead, let loose, and rediscover your inner child with us!

Now, if you've got some improv chops from the big leagues like Chicago or New York, that's fantastic! However, to join us on stage eventually, you'll need to go through our classes. At Carolina Improv, we believe in starting everyone off on the same page. It's all about maintaining our culture of equality and upholding our shared values as a team. So, whether you're a seasoned pro or just starting out, our classes are the first step towards becoming part of our vibrant improv community.

Trust us, the benefits of improv extend far beyond the stage. So why wait? Let's embark on this incredible journey together and unlock your full potential!
