We Got Your Back... Our Classes are for Everyone!

Most are familiar with improv due to the hit TV show, Whose Line Is It Anyway?  Improv is all about thinking on your feet and making stuff up on the spot. Further, improvisation is a valuable and helpful tool in your life, relationships and career!

The Outcasters Improv Training Center is your “one-stop shop” for all levels of improv training! We hold live drop-in improv classes every Wednesday evening from 6:00-8:00 pm in North Scottsdale, just a couple minutes off the 101, Raintree exit, as well as weekly virtual classes every Tuesday from 6:00-7/7:30 pm MST. We also offer more in-depth training and workshops on both short and long-form improvisation. All of our classes are conducted in a safe and supportive environment where creativity can flourish.

Are you ready to flex your creative muscles and join us in making stuff up? Take a look at our many options in improv training… we guarantee a great time!

Meet the Outcasters' Chameleon Mascot, Banter!

banter peek

As a perceptive chameleon, Banter recognizes the importance of being adaptable. Banter came to be the Outcasters’ mascot after trying to find a place to cool off from the blazing Arizona sun. He stumbled inside a drop-in improv class and, after seeing what The Outcasters were all about, he quickly realized he was home! Whether you’re an experienced improviser, just beginning your improv journey, or attending one of our shows, Banter invites you to join us!
