Jill Whelan, star of the TV show "The Love Boat" and movie "Airplane" is teaching a new comedy Improv class. Not only will the truth set you free, but the truth is funny! Come be a part of the real "truth" in comedy! Improv is the most honest form of acting, because it teaches the actor to listen. True Improv is getting on-stage and performing without any preparation or planning - in other words, flying by the seat of your pants just like real-life. Learn with a working group of actors how to truly hone your craft and have the time of your life! Exercises include the Harold, which is a favorite of Second City and Improv Olympics.

The class is ongoing, however an 8 week commitment is required. 


"I have taken classes in NY with Strassburg, and I have never once come out of a class feeling like's the best class I have ever taken" - Andrea 

"This class has given me back my confidence" - Susan 

"The first thing I noticed was the energy in the room-people were extremely nice, and confident. They were dancing around even when not in the spotlight. And it was contagious." - Ed 

"Jill is teaching us so much more about life than we know, through our vulnerability under those lights and in our Improv situations. Thank you, thank you.." - S.
