ImprovBoston's Vacation ComedyClinics

Spend your school vacation at New England’s premiere comedy school. Our professionally-trained instructors represent some of Boston’s best and most experienced improvisational comedians. We create a fun and supportive environment within which students can explore, develop, and succeed.  While improvisation is best known for the power to amaze and entertain through hilarious performances, the fundamentals of the art also set forth a creative process leading to support, engagement, trust, and applied risk-taking off-stage as well as on.

NO PREVIOUS IMPROV COMEDY EXPERIENCE NECESSARY

Each session runs Monday-Friday from 10AM - 3PM at our theater in Central Square.

Extended Day care 9AM - 4PM is available when you register.

Student Showcase takes place at 2PM on Friday of this session.

Tuition is $325 for one week programs.

Sibling Discount: When at least 2 students register TOGETHER for the same week, you save $25 per child! Students must register at the same time and with a single payment.

Financial assistance may be available. High School students with improv experience may also apply for our youth internship program.

Misch Whitaker

Teaching Style: I truly enjoy introducing people to the world of improv and because of that I'm passionate about the early levels. My class is a safe, comfortable space for people to explore their creativity and imaginations without fear of judgement or failure. I move through exercises at the pace of my students and provide direct side coaching to ensure that every one is getting the most out of each drill. In between exercises I leave room for questions or clarifications so that each new skill set can be understood before moving on to the next. Each weekly class leading up to the Showcase Show ends with an opportunity for students to process and reflect with one another about their progress so that my students can grow not only as individuals but as a cohesive team who will be able to support one another fully on stage at the end of eight weeks.
