Improv Classes

There is no trick.

The Syracuse Improv Collective Training Program offers a variety of classes for both the beginning improviser and the more experienced. Each class is taught by an experienced improvisor from the SIC community. We’re open to anyone who is interested in learning the art of long-form improv, whether it’s just for fun or to pursue performing in front of an audience at our monthly shows.

All 2017 classes will be held at:

745 N. Salina St
