Online Improv Comedy Training
for Self Improvement
in Las Vegas, NV
(and now, worldwide via Zoom!)
"Improv for being a human."
Improv is actively listening, being fully present in the moment, adapting to change, and connecting with people. We bring this training to life through improv classes, workshops, coaching, and training at our Functional Improv© events.
These classes keep getting more fun each week. I didn't even want to show up today but I had signed up so I kept the commitment. It was so much fun. Changed my blah mood into a better one. Now I'm set to have a great evening.
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.
What a great program focused on using improv in our everyday lives. Natalie and Ryan are supportive, welcoming, and total pros at what they do. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to improve their interpersonal skills, become a better listener, or learn to be more grounded in life.
Super fun, easy, and creative! A great way to connect and do improv for beginners and veterans alike! Check it out, you'll have fun!
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.
We had VIP do a workshop for our training event and our participates had a lot of fun! It was great to work with Natalie and Ryan. If you want something different I would highly recommend them for your event!
What a great training workshop! I am so glad I found these guys. Natalie and Ryan were able to deliver exactly what we wanted to help our team. I highly recommend corporate improv training if you want something unique for your event - we had a ton of fun!
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!
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.
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.
