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.

Danny Balel

Teaching Style: I believe in organic discovery, emotional commitment, and allowing yourself to be goofy onstage and off. My style reflects these three components. Through side coaching, targeted exercises, and the release of laughter my classes focus on breaking down inhibitions and trusting your instincts. It is my core belief that being silly is as useful as being in control.
