Class Description:

Come build up those improv muscles at BATS’ Improv Gym! The improv gym is more like a traditional gym than like a typical improv class. Rather than committing to six or eight weeks, you can subscribe to the gym one month at a time and then drop in to play with a variety of coaches during that month. You’ll get to play with several coaches and other students while learning new skills and practicing old ones.

The specifics: This gym includes the Wednesdays and Thursdays online PLUS a Saturday gym that happens in-person at Ft. Mason from 11am to 1pm PST. Members of the Hybrid gym can attend any Wednesday, Thursday, and/or Saturday. The cost for the Hybrid gym is $175.

For December, some of the coaches lined up include Tim OrrBasel Al-NaffouriCorey RosenBrian Jones, and Rez Graham.

Coaches may focus on specific skills, games, or genres, or they may ask the gym members what they’d like to work on, so feel free to show up with requests. The gym is open to anyone who has completed F2 or above.
