CSz Richmond Theater • Winter Improv Classes 2018


Improv is more than just a performance tool. It teaches you life skills that are valuable well beyond the stage. 

It's time to get out of your head and bring laughter into every aspect of your life! Our introductory through advanced workshops emphasize basic improvisational skills by exploring spontaneity, staying in the moment, teamwork, risk-taking, storytelling, creating characters, and other fun stuff in a relaxed and supportive environment.  


We're the oldest improv training facility in Central Virginia, teaching skills to students and businesses since 1996. And our professional CSz Richmond facilitators connect with the worldwide CSz network of training centers, in 25 cities internationally and growing. From kids to business professionals, come play with us and see why everybody's talking about CSz Richmond!
