Foundation 1 – Mindset & Skillset

Online Sessions 
Prerequisite: None! Open to Adults 18 and older 
Schedule: 8 sessions (once a week for 8 weeks) 
Class length: 2 hours (16 hours total) 
Class size: 16 students maximum
Tuition: $299

A fun, playful, and engaging introduction to the principles and mindsets of improvisation and the BATS style of improv.

The class will focus on developing the ensemble and honing these foundational skills:

  • Listening
  • Support
  • Spontaneity
  • Imagination
  • Collaboration

Students will learn the groundwork for the creative magic of improvising stories together. World-class coaches guide students through the first exciting stages of improvisation in a safe, friendly atmosphere.

At the end of F1, the coach will make a recommendation for each student about what next step is best — repeating F1 to strengthen the necessary skills or moving to Foundation 2: Movement & Story.

Still on the fence? Here’s why you should study improv at BATS.

NOTE: Attendance at the first session of your course is strongly encouraged. If you think you will have to miss the first session of your Foundation 1 class, please notify the office before registering.
