4-Class Modules & Intensives
“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.
For the true improv nerds, BIG's 4-class modules and intensives offer the opportunity to drill down on specific improv techniques and performance formats. These classes typically include prerequisites and are tailored for improvisers who have already taken several full-length classes and/or have performance experience. Modules and intensives are always being revamped and newly-conceived to cater to areas of interest.
