Each instructor has a background in improv and theatre with experience on stage and in the classroom with adults, teens and kids.
We offer classes that teach everything from improv comedy to musical theatre to creative writing. This is the place to stretch your child's creative muscles.
Whether it's due to COVID or just busy schedules, sometimes physically going to a class is not in the cards. So, we also offer select virtual class options.
If that's your child, they'll absolutely love it. However, 85% of our students fit a different description. They may be new to the area looking to find friends or they're looking for a creative outlet that's not sports or perhaps they were bullied and need to build back their self-confidence. After years of teaching in high schools, universities and homeschool co-ops, we've seen the power of improv and creativity transform students.
In our classes, your children learn the principles that make every scene in life successful like "Yes, And," "Make Each Other Look Good," "Give Good Gifts," and "Respond to the Last Thing." These principles make up the improv toolkit that increases creativity, thinking on your feet, being authentic and comfortable in your own skin. These aren't just principles for theatre. They're principles for life.
Classes start the week of Sept. 12th. Pay in full or in a monthly payment plan. See details below.

In this course, you'll learn how to play 10 improv games and walk away with life lessons learned from the improv principles found in those games. Taught by Sean Hancock, owner and founder of Recycled Minds, this course is created with over 20 years of experience teaching and performing improv comedy. He breaks down each game into 3 parts: the instructions, an example for you to follow and the life lessons learned from these improv games.LEARN MORE
