Is improv the same thing as stand-up?

Nope! Even though they are both in the improv family, stand-up is scripted, solo and about telling jokes. Improv comedy is a team sport – everyone works together without a script to create a scene grounded in reality.

When do I get to take Level 2?

You must have attended at least 80% of classes  class in Level 1, attended at least one H2G improv show, and you must have a solid grasp of the skills taught in Level 1. Your instructor will provide you with an evaluation at the end of the session and let you know which class you should take next.

Nope! Held2gether is committed to the concept of improv for life, meaning that everyone from every walk of life can benefit from the skills of improv.

Can improv classes help me with job interviews and public speaking?

Yes! Improv increases confidence and listening – both valuable skills in interviews.  It can also encourages risk taking and presentation skills  We have many students who combine improv classes and Toastmasters to optimize the skills of both for public speaking.
