Summer Sessions Celebrates Its 20th Anniversary

May 1, 2014

This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the BATS School of Improv’s Summer Sessions. Students have come from all over the world to participate in these unique intensive classes. Each year we host notable guest coaches, such as Theatresports™ founder Keith Johnstone and Blind Date creator Rebecca Northan. This year we’re pleased to welcome back Patricia Madsen Ryan, author of Improv Wisdom (and a coach at the very first Summer Session in 1994!).
