PLEASE NOTE: CURRENT APRIL CLASSES HAVE BEEN DELAYED (AGAIN). POTENTIAL DATES IN OCTOBER ARE BEING CONSIDERED.  PLEASE BE SAFE.

Current Update: Improv Classes

Due to COVID-19 related issues, all improv classes that were originally scheduled for April (and moved to June/July/Sept) will need to be further delayed. As of June 1st, 2020, establishments such as Village Theatre were allowed to re-open; albeit with a number of safety restrictions. VT is currently assessing how to safely implement those changes. It is our goal to have new start dates for classes soon. Please note: class dates will be determined based upon CDC/Health Official guidelines that take into account the health and safety of our instructors and students.

Once class dates are set, we will email everyone using the email address provided at class purchase, as well as post on social media (FB, Insta, Twitter). It is our goal to give everyone 3-4 weeks notice.

Thank you. Arts organizations (especially performance arts) have been hit hard so we appreciate all of your patience and support.
