IMPROV CONSERVATORY – Through a series of exercises focused on personal attention and challenges, exploration of different improv formats, discussion among your classmates and your instructor of what you do and do not enjoy seeing on stage, eight (8) students selected from the pool of applicants to this Improv Conservatory class will spend 8-weeks creating their own unique improv format or style for a short run at PHIT.
