Online Improv School or Coach Description
The World's Greatest Improv School is an improv grad school. That means we don't have introductory classes. We offer intermediate and advanced level courses for people with some long-form improv experience. You certainly don't need to be an expert to take our classes, but we expect you've done some basic yes-anding and getting suggestions - that type of thing.
Will Hines, a longtime teacher and performer who trained at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in both New York and Los Angeles, founded the school in April 2020.
Improv classes teach listening, reacting, seeing patterns and enjoying irony. Hopefully, they'll also help you see yourself as a creative person, learn how to express your individual comedic voice, and help others to express their voice.
Improv has both a creative and an analytical side. It's art and math. They work together to make really interesting and surprising comedy.
With a small catalog of shows and jams, WGIS also wants to draw like-minded people together and let them appreciate each other's sensibilities, celebrate each other's creativity and push them to be great artists and people.
