Anyone and everyone stands something to gain by taking a class with Washington Improv Theater. Go ahead, take the plunge.

More testimonials: See how improv can help you at work and bring out your creativity.

A student raves: “Two and a half hours of laughter! You learn how to get silly with strangers and to grow strong ties of trust based around utter absurdity. No pressure, no mistakes, only happy accidents.”

COVID Safety

Class are in-person unless otherwise noted. Participants must upload proof of vaccination (including booster) against COVID-19 upon registration .

Each class determines if masks are mandatory or optional via survey. If everyone in class agrees, masks will be optional. If even one person asks masks to be mandatory, medical-grade masks (ex. surgical masks and N-95s) will be required.

Improv for all: no matter who you are, you’ve got something to gain from taking Foundations of Improv.

Meet people, gain poise, build your confidence and explore your creativity by learning the fundamental concepts of improvisation. It’s the most fun you’ll have all week.

When registering for classes, make sure it fits with your schedule. It’s okay if you miss a class but not more than two. The showcase is also not required but trust us, you will be having so much fun you won’t want to miss any of it!

We also have an inclusion scholarship program!

WIT holds classes at Universalist National Memorial Church (1810 16th St NW), Latin American Youth Center (1419 Columbia Rd NW), and Sitar Arts Center (1700 Kalorama Rd NW).
