Youth Improv Classes

ImprovGenics Youth Improv with Joe Hammer

Thank you for your interest in our Improvgenics Youth Improv Classes!

Improvgenics introduces students to core-level skills in creativity, spontaneity, listening, acceptance, confidence-building, collaborative creativity and teamwork – all in an active and humorous way!

Students from the age of 7 to 15 will learn life-enhancing principles of Improv such as agreement, support in ensemble work, getting over stage-fright and being in the moment. They will discover how to make bold choices through group exercises, basic improvised scenes, and games. They’ll experience positive thinking while improving social skills and undoing rigid thinking that blocks creativity! They’ll discover and share what makes them awesome! And it all happens in a “learn by doing,” kind and safe environment that will have them up on their feet and playing from day one.

Meet the Outcasters' Chameleon Mascot, Banter!

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!
