Every summer and at various times throughout the school year, BATS School of Improv offers classes to students ages 11 to 17. Improvisation is an excellent tool for improving verbal expression, enhancing listening skills, building body awareness, and boosting self-confidence. It’s also FUN!

Our youth classes provide individual attention from experienced coaches who have worked with youth and teen improvisers for many years. Students explore the concepts and skills of improv through games and exercises, and most classes culminate in a showcase performance for family and friends. All classes are held in our professional performing space — the 200-seat Bayfront Theater.

Note: Our youth and teen classes are very popular and often sell out, especially the summer sessions, so we strongly encourage you to register early. AND if you register for both summer sessions, you’ll receive a 20% discount on the second session — email registrar@improv.org for more info.
