FALL 2021 IMPROV CLASSES

Why is CSz Richmond offering classes specifically for those in the BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ communities? 

Comedy has historically been and continues to be dominated by cis white men. Too many aspiring comedians have gone unseen because they didn’t see their faces, bodies and experiences reflected on stage, and this needs to change. AT CSz Richmond, we want our theater and stage to accurately reflect the community we serve, and having more BIPOC voices and perspectives will only improve our community and comedy. This class is just one step in our ongoing efforts to create a more diverse, inclusive and equitable space. Outside of this class, we will also offer scholarships for all of our other classes, and we’d love to see you in them!!
