“It will change your life!” That’s what we hear most often about taking improv classes. You’ll work with the best improvisers in Baltimore. You'll learn to create original, honest, and funny scenes & ideas through games, exercises and performances.
BIG loves hosting visiting improv teachers from all over the world to grace our classrooms and share their creative wisdom! Over the years, BIG has been visited by renowned instructors, focusing on topics as diverse as stage combat, freestyle rapping & beatboxing, and puppetry, in addition to more standard improv-based offerings.
A slate of guest workshops are offered during our festival weeks (Baltimore Improv Festival and X-Fest) and otherwise happen about once a month. Either way, our selection of guest workshops is always being updated, so check the BIG website regularly for information on who will be visiting us next!
