Lauren-Reilly Eliot Company ActinTry Something New in 2020 and Learn Improv with Silverbacks! Classes Starting January 11 (Flash Sale November 29th - December 2nd) Classes
On Second Stage 

DOWNTOWN LAFAYETTE –

 

Need to get yourself out of your comfort zone? Looking for a truly unique gift for the aspiring performer in your life? The answer is here

- Silverbacks Improv classes begin again on January 11th, just in time for your New Years resolution to try something new.

Silverbacks Improv Theatre began offering improv classes in the summer of 2015, and has had great success and fun with their students. Improv troupes Weaning Process, The Plural Noun, and recent grad troupe Lively Banter found their beginnings in Silverbacks improv classes.

 

The Silverbacks will begin by offering Improv 1. Students will then have the option to continue to Improv 2 and 3 if they choose.

 

IMPROV LEVEL ONE is an entry-level journey into the joys and thrills of improvisation, or improv. Students will learn and practice the application of “group mind” and the all-important “yes, and” - and other improv concepts and vocabulary.  Students will practice new skills, perform and play in a safe, low-stakes and friendly atmosphere.

 

LEVEL ONE is perfect for the super fan of comedy or improv who has yet to perform, the curious introvert wanting to try something new or someone looking to improve their public speaking or quick decision making skills. At the conclusion, you can move on to Level Two or continue to take LEVEL ONE again - as many times as you’d like.

You’re sure to get something new out of it each time!

 

Still on the fence? Hear from a former student!

 

“Silverbacks Improv Theatre classes were a great experience. I felt like I was in a slump, and these classes lifted me up. I made friends, gained confidence, and had the opportunity to play. The teachers miraculously offer a relaxed yet rigorous environment where challenge is welcome, but never judgment.” -Leslie Tidwell Level One students will also have the perk of free entry to all Silverbacks produced improv shows while they are taking classes!
