Learn

Discover a new sense of freedom and play. Meet other fun and interesting people. Taking an online class at Washington Improv Theater is the perfect way to unleash your creativity and connect with others.

MAKE TIME FOR FUN AND LAUGHTER

Our classes are geared toward fun. Meet fun and interesting people while building your skills! Our students and teachers have found online improv as a time to connect, and a time to break away from the relative monotony of what’s become “the new normal.” From your own home, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with lots of new people who bring their own unique experiences

WIT has moved its entire core curriculum online—so you can start taking our regular 8-week classes now!
