Foundation Specialty classes give you more opportunities to play and have fun while deepening your improv knowledge in a specific area. Classes range from one to four weeks and explore a particular improv skill, such as status, character, games, singing, genre, narrative, or spontaneity.

These classes are a great place for Foundation-level students to explore a distinct element of improv in more depth, working with coaches who are skilled in that particular area.
