Natalie and Ryan are exceptional teachers and human beings. As a new resident of Las Vegas, I wanted to try something new and out of my comfort zone. As a consequence, I finished the class with life skills and friendships. Improv is an amazing tool for learning communication, decision making, critical thinking and how improvisation can be a great tool out in the "real world". The classes are so dynamic and every day it was different! Natalie and Ryan created a safe space for everyone to be comfortable and secure. As a professional working remote in this new world situation, it felt so great to get out there and try something new! I recommend Vegas Improv Power 110%!

Natalie and Ryan’s improv classes have been the highlight of my weeks. As a corporate professional, I wanted to do something out of my comfort zone. I’m so glad I took a chance on a program that I could integrate into my overall perspective towards myself, others, and life. I’ve gained so many critical thinking skills and friends from this experience, I would recommend to anyone at any point in time. The goal is to have fun and not take yourself too seriously in this class. The atmosphere is gentle, supportive and unique.My favorite lesson from improv has been to celebrate the decisions we make. We are all here to learn and grow.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Vegas Improv Power. I attended the six week Functional Improv Class. Natalie and Ryan are excellent instructors that pilot the class through a variety of exercises. Their infectious enthusiasm for teaching improv creates the perfect atmosphere to step out of your comfort zone. I highly recommend any class from this group. This class is some of the most fun I have had in the past years. It is both money and time well spent. Five stars.

The coaches at Vegas Improv Power are very talented at meeting you whatever skill level you are at and demonstrate that they care about your goals/growth. Classes are intentionally structured to help you let go of self-judgement and easily connect with people around you. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend VIP to people who want a new experience for themselves, want to become more skilled improvisers, or could use a team building exercise in their organization. ☺️

Functional Improv from Vegas Improv Power was a great way to get back into life after the crazy year of 2020. Natalie and Ryan are amazing teachers and they create an atmosphere that is fun and supportive. You'll bond with your teammates, you'll learn about improv, and you'll learn about yourself. An invaluable 6 weeks no matter who you are or what you do! Take it, you won't regret it.

I am loving the Functional Improv classes! I’m a long time fan of improv, first time participant and it’s so much fun. Natalie and Ryan are professional, entertaining and talented teachers. It’s like improv meets personal growth. We laugh a lot and learn new skills for both acting and life! I am so glad I signed up and I’ll definitely be a returning student.

Natalie and Ryan lead a great class with a mix of exercises that were so helpful and fun. I originally was looking for a class that focuses on business skills, but the drop-in class had a great variety. It was the perfect mix for a first time improv class.

Took the “7 Habits...” improv book club and it was a fun and interesting learning experience. Each week we explored a chapter of the book and did improv activities that related. Book club + improv class in one. Also great people. Did a great job at maintaining a safe environment to try new things.

One word for this workshop..."Amazing"! The skills and exercises taught were meaningful, insightful and most importantly fun! It was perfect for my managers and supervisors. It really helped and strengthened leadership skills, listening skills and even a sense of bonding. It was booked last minute and thankfully they were able to accommodate on such short notice. I wanted to do something a little different for my team and this was definitely it. I cannot speak enough about this corporate improv training program and am recommending it to my business partners. I do hope to book them again in the near future!

Vegas Improv power did a session for our leadership team and I didn't hear anything but positive feedback. I would highly recommend taking the session as a great team builder, or simply on how to incorporate Improv into the work you do.

What Can You Learn From Improv?

While improvisation is generally associated with comedy and theatre (and it absolutely is, even when online!), there are also so many life benefits you can take away from a typical improv class. Communication is a huge part of what we teach and do, both verbal and non-verbal, but we also learn about ourselves in the process. Whether you want to grow as a person, or you want us to help your team get to the next level, read on to learn about some topics that we tend to cover often.

Communication Skills

Listening and reacting are at the core of what improvisation is all about. But of course, it encompasses so much more. You don't want to listen just to react, you want to listen to understand, connect, and collaborate with your scene partner (or, with whomever you're talking to). We learn how to actively listen, how to say yes, how to show instead of tell, how to tell a story, and ultimately, how to get out of your head and be more present.

How to Move Forward, Even in Failure

Our co-founder, Ryan, describes an improv class as a safe environment where you learn how to fail. We learn not to fear failure, but to see them as gifts, or opportunities. We embrace failure by getting out of our heads, taking steps forward, and trusting (both ourselves, and others) that we will figure it out as we go. In improv, as in life, you're never alone, no matter how much it feels like you are.

Mental Agility and Adaptability

Whether it's due to age, life's stressors, or for seemingly no reason at all, we have all felt like we're just a little less sharp, a little less quick, and a little more forgetful than we used to be. Improv exercises your brain in specific ways. Much like trying a new way home from work, or trying to write with your opposite hand, the games and exercises in our classes bring you directly into the present moment just enough to help you learn a bit while trying new things.
